Lurking in the shadows... by Seb-Photos Lurking in the shadows... by Seb-Photos
This china leopard was hided behind trees and plants as it was really hard to locate him, but I get a shot anyway! And I'm quite proud of the result! @ jardin des plantes - Paris - France.

This is by far one my favourite works of yours. The angle is perfect, and you captured it in just the right moment, the blue eyes staring right at the camera.

I also like the little parts of grass getting in the way, I think it adds to the atmosphere of hiding and creeping up. The quality of the photo is great, yet I think I would like this more if the picture was wider and more of the leopard was showing. Of course, you can't exactly tell a wild animal where to sit down, so this is pretty awesome.
What do you think?

Hi,

A critique as per your request by submitting your photograph to #CRPhotography.

First of all, I would like to say that it is a beautiful capture. Let there be no doubt of that. It is a nice scenery. Not the most original, but the trees and plants do make it interesting enough. The composition is good.

However, I would like to point out one thing: The colours are a bit off. There appears to be a pink hue over the photo, which makes it look like your white balance is not properly set. If you photograph in RAW this can easily be corrected afterwards.

Other than that, great job! Keep up the great work!

Very nice shot! I like the colors and that the leopard is behind the trees and plants. But I just want to push the plant back a bit to see more of it haha. But very nice detail. (:

What an amazing capture! Great timing :clap:

One of the first things I notice when I look at this is that it feels like the viewer is catching glimpse of something that he/she usually wouldn't; almost like we're spying on the tiger while he goes about his normal business. It more than likely comes from the 'between the plants' perspective, and I love it! Wonderful work. :nod:

I love the composition here, the angle is wonderful and you left just enough space on either side. It's centered, but I think that works well with the subject. Your timing was perfect! :clap:

I do feel like the photo could use a little more saturation and contrast to really make it pop and catch your eye however. The greens in front seem especially 'dull,' but that could just be my computer too. :shrug:

Excellent capture! :love:
