[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mâle sensiblement plus grand et plus lourd que la femelle. Corps musclé, pattes robustes de taille moyenne ; queue très longue ; tête large ; museau moyennement allongé ; petites oreilles rondes avec revers parsemé de taches noires et blanches ; dos et flanc jaune clair à brun jaunâtre en passant par toutes les nuances intermédiaires, ventre blanchâtre blanc grisâtre ou blanc jaunâtre ; tête, encolure et ventre parsemés de tâches noires, reste du corps parsemé de rosettes composées de points noirs. Le Léopard est solitaire, surtout nocturne d'où la difficulté de le rencontrer. Il se nourrit d'animaux de toutes sortes, ses plus grosses proies étant les antilopes. Il apprécie tout particulièrement le singe et le chien. Il hisse sans difficulté ses proies dans les arbres.

I love these Leopards and never suceeded getting a decent picture of them.
This one is lovely, but I think it is a bit too much centered, so I tried a WS.
I really like the grass in front of him, although many people do not appreciate.
Sharpness is just great but the image a bit soft.

selam farid, Great shot and very good composition nice pov and bg with splendid colours. Well done ! Regards ridvan

Heloo Rarid,

Hi Farid
great capture and composition of this beuatiful animal.
good DOF, POV, sharpness and a fantastic look at you!
well done.

great picture, amazing sharpness and composition. TFS Ori

Nice in the wild capture Farid, I like the leopard looking through the grass as if stalking..The head is well focused.
I would say that overall, the grass/small branches overpower or detract from the composition though..
Better contrast control and color managment would improve your post as well.

Awesome leopard once again! The grass in th Foreground is not a problem here as the subject is very well focused and displays the natural environment within which we find these animals. It also shows the difficulty involved with getting a clear shot of one of these and despite your difficulties, you did very well.

The Composition, BG, DOF, sharpness and POV are great. Keep up the good work on the Leopards!
