Cheetah Portrait

A female Cheetah gazes directly into the camera for me while photographing on the plains of the Maasai Mara, Kenya.
imo, this photograph looks so much better without the sickly green background of DA, my 2c.

Brilliantly sharp focus on the eyes, really draws you in. I think it works very well in B&W too.

Fabulous. One small thing I would change is to blur or fade in the sharp horizontal lines left at the bottom of the image from the background overlay.

Thanks. That's part of my copyright signature to prevent unwarranted usage. Unfortunately as with all watermarks it does detract from the image.
