Hi Radu,
Excellent portrait, great detail and exposure. I know how hard these cats are to photograph so I can really appreciate this shot, great work.

Hi Radu,
I am fascinated by this photograph.To photograph normal panthers(leopards) itself is difficult and the black one impossible.Where did you take this snap.Hope it is not in a zoo.
Congrats and TFS

Beautiful shot, Radu. Thanks for the dedication- this one is so beautiful. I take this to be in the wild, what a difficult photo to take and be lucky enough or patient enough to find. Thanks for sharing it. :) Big smile.

Salut, Radu

Sorry for the late or interrupted comments I've done up lately (and will do for a while).
The job is overpowering me again. Just found a bit of time to watch and enjoy a few friends' photos.

Regards, Petru

Hello Radu,

I love this exquisitely dramatic and powerful image!

Superb composition, lighting, details, colors and mood...

A wonderful tribute, thank you for sharing it!

This cool cat looks like he's right out of the Jungle Book Story as the calm cool collective Bagheera the Panther. Nice shot Radu. :)
