Wow, it was a great finish to the week. Seems like more often than not my images start off well and then slide as the week progress. This one did the opposite.

This is an Impala baby. He must have just recently been born as he didn't take off running with his mom when we drove up. He sat there perfectly as I edged out of the car and popped this picture. Tanzania is a wonderful place to live both for the people and the amazing wildlife.

The finishing was a bit challenging as I was trying to keep the color interesting and every time I hit save for web they seemed to lose an edge. Over all I am very pleased.

Thanks for your comments and votes.

9 - Oh a gem - what a nice surprise when this came up. Lovely colors and clarity - 'if only' a touch more light in/on the eyes and a whisker sharper on them and the nose/chin (as long as it doesn't take the dominance away from those beautiful big eyes). Very nice.
