Thanks to the team for pushing my lazy ass to get a decent shot..

Some will like the processing, some will hate it.. I personally like it.

This is very very close to a 100% crop from the Pentax, the reason I LOVE this camera..

est score - 6.5

Beautiful! I love the gaze. Light's all in the right place and the other bodies make the perfect background.

Very appealing expression and skilful editing lift this shot. As a nitpick, there maybe some blown highlights around the muzzle but then again this adds to the contrast which boosts the overall impact of the shot. Great stuff!

Pleasing frame-filling shot, good textural detail and super eye-contact from the cheetah. The composition may be straight in terms of actual horizon, but the cheetah appears to be trying to lean out of the frame - I wonder if a small anti clockwise rotation might help?
