How dare You? by darkSoul4Life How dare You? by darkSoul4Life
This is one of the african cheetahs(Acinonyx Jubatus) from the Krefelder Zoo. Also the same cat you saw here:


The moment I captured isn't a snarling cheetah but the very end of an impressive huge yawn.

Comments as well as Critique is highly appreciated :)


Camera: Canon EOS 400D

I apologize for what might be my shortest critique.

I always begin with vision so let's have at it.
I give you a 5. You seem to have wanted either an annoyed cheetah or one simply showing off her gorgeous profile, and you got it. You successfully captured that annoyed/vane cheetah.

I give you a 4.5 on originality.
I give you a high score because I have not quite seen such a clear depiction of a cheetah snarling. On the other hand I have seen annoyed cheetahs many, many times.

I give you 5 on technique (don't get tired of the high scores, they keep coming).
You're a fabulous photographer. You have a good eye. You got this beauty here looking like a champion on her rock there. It's difficult to get close enough to cheetahs, especially when they're already snarling, to capture this delightful pose.

Impact I give another bloody 5.
I compliment you on the filter choice, period. I have already expressed amazement in the position you got her and by showing a bit of her teeth it's all the more breathtaking.

Beautiful work (adds to favorites).
What do you think?

I think it should be ok if you use this photo only as reference and are not going to sell your creation in any way or prints of it. The zoo has very strict rules about how you may use the photos you take there..

Wonderful shot, Johannes, I love the editing you've done on this shot, it really adds something that I think it wouldn't have with it's original colouring. Also great timing on catching the end of the yawn, if you hadn't said it was a yawn I would have been certain he was snarling.

Thank you very much Jo. I'm glad you like my experimental editing and I can fully agree with you, it looks like an ordinary snapshot with the original colors. It always looks like a grimly snarl when they're at the end of a yawn and I'm glad to have captured it ^^ I don't know what people are doing to get photos of those bigger cats snarling, they usually don't snarl at me.
