Another shot from www.tenerifeguide.eu/junglepark.php hope you like.
This is a lovely close up Rob - I enjoy
A gorgeous feline Rob
A beautiful close-up, Rob. Carol
Powerful and impressive, great framing, Rob!
focus on eyes which is where it (generally) matters, but nose is not 'in' - a personal preference, and given the conditions your exif suggests you were working in a better option than having nose in and eyes out.
however, rather than using +EC which slows your shutter, a slight -EC would have upped your shutter and as such allowed you the option of a smaller aperture and as such greater depth of field - so potentially capturing both the ose and eyes.
if attempting to do so then the trick is not to focus on either but to focus c. 1/3 of the distance from nose to eyes - although this will not work with larger apertures
Great capture Rob. His expression is saying 'Don't mess with me'.
Rob, you have some good advice there from philhomer
These animals are so beautiful
Well spotted, Rob! Looks good to me, despite philhomer's comments
Looks good to me Rob, nice clean clear shot on my monitor great eye detail, like it, regards Leon.
Good shot. Nose looks good, not razor sharp, but it doesnt matter, - the eyes matter and theyre excellent. Nose can easily be sharpened selectively in Photoshop. Increasing shutter speed and closing down aperture would underexpose the shot unless you increased ISO, - so theres always a trade off. There are many different ways a shot could be done, focal length, distance to subject, if only the light was better, etc but the feedback on the nose is nit picking to say the least.
Fantastic closeup Rob
Thats close!........... love the whiskers
Thanks for all comments and critique it was shot from behind perspex which to fair wasn't the cleanest ,the leopard was pacing up and down and not standing still so I tried to capture it before he turned also the amont of peole milling around didn't help though to be fair they did try and give me space .Overall I'm pretty pleased with it.
great detail, well close and sharp. Bob
A very beautiful cat!
A brilliant close up
