A cheetah in Zoo Praha, looking towards great expectations ahead. I was really lucky with both the light and background here. I've also managed to avoid 'cheetah grazers', ugly modern statues they erected in the exhibit. Eeew.

Hello. I wanted to write you a critique too. I hope I can help you a little bit with it.

I love the details in your photo. The cheetah is very sharp and the background is blurred. I like pictures like that. And the colours are also very good. They are bright and strong. The contrast is also good. And the fur. It's very difficult to catch the cheetah's fur cvery sharp. I also tried this, but I failed. X'D
And yeah, there's no much to say. The expressions of the cat are very straight. And I also like the warm touch. I don't know, maybe you edited the photo, but whatever, the result is brilliant and you are a great animal photographer.

Keep up your good work.

Yours, Akirahpaws

If only they were cheetah statues at least, but they are humans. Ugly, green, metal and naked. Wonderful stuff to have on photo.

Thank you. When I've got the lens, I was rather annoyed, since handling it is rather difficult, but I can't praise the pictures it makes enough. Considering this is rather radical crop, the details are indeed highly satisfying.
