[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the typical scenes, when I think back about Masai Mara, is the harmony of cheetas when they display during their complex hunting behaviour.

I love it! The frame compliments the cheetahs.
It is pure Africa at it's best.
Very nice catch!

Hi Alptekin, you always have great images, like this one, very well composed! I only have the feeling that with the scans you use RGB color setting and not Srgb.. For some reason the colors seem a bit flat.. And you use the finest gear, so maybe thats the reason..

Another winning shot of these Cheetah. POV is great giving this a real mirror image effect. Well done. Thanks.

nice prespectif. good compotition. the tone is good, moody.

very nice catch.

Great safari shot !

Beautiful image Alpetkin. I know were I given an opportunity like this I would have gone for maximum DOF and I think I would have been wrong...your image shows that. I love your chosen composition, POV and DOF. Very sharp too, the light across the grasses cuts a diagonal across the position and gaze of the cats and creates extra drama I think. Lovely image! Thank you for posting :)

Hi Alptekin,
Absolutely magnificent. The pose, details and exposure. Everything.
Well done.

This is a classic - great to blow up and frame. Well done. Tim
