  2. Nice shot! Excellent bokeh.
  3. Beautiful! Hopefully they have some room for the poor guy/gal to get up to speed a bit.

    henderson, nv
    gorgeous colors and shot!
  5. thanks much Lisa, Alex! :D 
  6. Very nice! It's a classic pose. Do you have a shot with a looser crop?
  7. tks Jonathan.
    First time I've heard the term looser crop - hehe..
    If you could explain it to me, I have 1 or 2 other shots I could look at?

    no matter, just had a look, the other shot has no eye contact in it :( 
  8. Haha, my bad. English is clearly not my forte!

    What I meant was the cheetah's head takes up most of the frame, and the head is very close to the sides of the picture. I was wondering whether you had a shot where we weren't as zoomed in to his head.
  9. neat! live 'n learn :) 
    as mentioned, only 1 with no eye contact. I could PP it and post it if still interested?
  10. Looks very calm but i still wouldnt trust a cheetah lol. Great shot.

    Here's one I took in San Diego with my old D70. Couldn't coerce him out of the shade (It was only 104 degrees out :eek: )
