Impala and heavy rain
difficult to get good pictures during rain, and maybe even more difficult to make a good post processing with PS, to much and the ambiance is gone, not enough and everything is grey.
Thanks for your comments

Hello Tom,
Excellent photo of these Impalas. The colours and the sharpness are great. The composition of the heads is fantastic, just like the DOF.

Hi TOm - a fantastic capture of the imphala under trying conditions. I like the color and the composition. TFS

Very, very impressive photo Tom. The POV, the composition, the colours, the lighting and the sharpness are excellent.

hello Tom

it is a dream for me to do bird or wild animal
photos when it is raining or more when it is
snowing but for that i need a waterproof camera,
you did an excellent composition under that
raining difficult conditions, very fine POV
and appropriate vertical framing, great focus
sharpness and details, beautiful eye-contacts,



Hello Tom !
This is an unusual picture, usually when we see impalas it is a picture with warm colors, dry grass and sun - this is special. Not something we see every day on TN. I also like how the first impala is in focus, and then the others get more and more blurred, it gives a nice depth to your picture. Excellent sharpness and details, wonderful composition, nice natural colors. Very well done !

Hi Tom.
Perfect shot showing us not only these animals, but also weather conditions. Perfect composition and nice natural colours.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh .. I love this wet shot here Tom! Very well balanced composition and fantastic soft colors! Bravo!

Very beautiful image of these impala in the rain, excellent composition. You can try adding some black in post processing to give some contrast. What a lovely image. tfs.

WOW Tom,
What a stunning shot and in the rain. Very good composition and clear detail. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Hello Tom,

You achieve an interesting effect by choosing a narrow DoF, blurring all animals but the one in front!
Great details and the colours are well reproduced, tight composition with good impact...

Pablo -
