too close for me !!!
Like the tight crop. Great detail,
Lovely shot loads of detail. Chris
I live the colour of the eyes, nice shot!
Now that's a close up! Nice details.
It's beautifully sharp and there's a nice catchlight in the eye. Coming in so close is brave (photographically, I mean) but I'm not a fan of the exact crop/framing you've chosen. I don't like the way you've shaved off the area around right eye (our left) and part of the nose. The problem with that is that the two eyes and the nose are the biggest features of the photograph so the viewer naturally wants to look at them. But, when you try to look at them, your eye falls out of the frame.
I think a better framing would be to pan slightly left and down. That would have the advantage of including more of the key areas I mentioned above and also putting the left eye (our right) a third of the way into the frame.
Thanks for the critique, I agree the eyes and nose could have been positioned better, but in this case, my timing was sort of an issue.. a polite "nice kitty, please pose for me" was not an option here Next time I find myself this close to a cheetah, I will definitely remember this advice
*laugh* Living in a country without this exciting wildlife, I'd just assumed you could head back to the zoo when you next had the time.
