    From a Noob point of view, this Cheetah lacks the protrayal of a fierce animal. Its eyes are sleepish if you get what I mean. Photo are definately better than any of mine of course. Honest Critic, please dont bite me.


    Disclaimer: I had never been to the safari before so I dont have the feel of how hard is it to shoot a wild Cheetah.

    HAHAH, this picture made me laugh!! (not your picture fault, but the cheetah)

    it looks so cute to me, more like a teddy bear than a cheetah

    its expression is very -_-"

    yeah its really cute, dun think the sheepish look isnt a bad thing either. i really like the tight crop (just dun have a 400mm lens+tc to do it more often). really sharp and interesting

    although, id maybe like to see it from a different angle or sth

    btw where is this place? looks like a pretty decent place to go to
