Good job dealing with difficult lighting. The crop seems a little cramped in front of the cheetah, but given the 640x limits, I don't know if a more spacious crop would have helped, or just reduced the amount of cheetah detail.

nice kitty... nice kitty... A good picture of a cheetah :) Little more contrast and sharpness would do better maybe?
