This shot was actually a mistake. I was trying to get shots with the whole cheetah and the shadow in it. When I saw the half shadow and half cheetah it made me think of their extinction and the fact that once the cheetah walks out of the frame, and out of life, all we are left with are the shadows and memories.

Hey Jason, I keep coming back to this image. I just love it more and more every time I look at it. You can expect that when I get money, I'll buy the print! Super work!

This has to be the best shot I have seen on dpc that convays a story. Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve. ;-)

Great shot, it deserved a ribbon IMHO. I find myself coming back to it as I like it so much. It has been added to my favorites and is simply awesome. Sometimes breaking the "rules" makes for a really super shot. Way to go, keep it up!

Whoa, you outdid yourself! What an amazing photo. If I'd voted I would have given it a 10.

I'll never be first on our camera's page now... ah well :).

I like the subject of this photo. The lighting is nice.

Fascinating image. I love the implied pattern that keeps my eye moving around the photo. I don't mind the bamboo being out of focus, but I wish the cheetah were a bit sharper. Very well composed!

I love this (and it's not just because I'm desperate to go back on safari). It puts into mind the safari pictures of old - and also reminds me of a magazine advert in style. I like the way we only see the back of the cheetah but see the shape of the rest of him in his silhouette.
Lighting is just a touch harsh on his legs and the bowl behind his back feet distracts from the legs/ feet.
Overall a great shot (and well cropped).

Hmm... like it! good job

Very good - a picture with a message as well as being a great image. Excellent work. Only small flaw is the shadow on the leopards hind foot. Regardless this is a 10 for me simply because I love photos with a message or a story or a purpose. floyd.

Your picture gives a sense of mystery. What a top shot!! Excellent choice of subject and that shadow is just awesome. GL in this weeks challenge.

the shadow totally helps out with the fact that most of the cat is out of the shot... and that makes it a good idea... good use of the desaturation technique... but the cat itself needs sharper focus

I really like this, one of my favorites this week. I wish I could see the entire shadow of the leopard though. Really great!
02/19/2003 06:33:45 PM
One of my top fav fotos for this week. The panaramic format and unusual composition combining derriere and shadow work very in this dynamic image. Although the feeding bowl is a very minor drawback it is a fact of the situation. The fuzzy bamboo backdrop is a complimentary texture. The stance of the animal shadow demonstrates sleek muscular power. I admire how you balanced the touch of color with the interplay of B&W. Gorgeous!

this is a provocative shot! I really like the use of the shadow to pull my eye direction to the exiting yellow. Also, I like how the spots mirror the pattern on the fence. Wonderful work! I would call this art!
