[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large feline (family Felidae, subfamily Felinae) inhabiting most of Africa and parts of the Middle East. It is the only extant member of the genus Acinonyx. The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal— as fast as 96 to 104 km/h (60 to 65 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 500 m (1,600 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to over 100 km/h (62 mph) in five seconds.

I like the look on the cheetahs face...wondering if you would make a good dinner. Great expression...good work as usual.

Bom dia Eleu,
Before anything else that strikes me most here is the beautiful DOF you managed, as well as toanalidades green after the strong presence of the cat, all strength, energy and dynamism, ready to jump.
A great picture.

  • Great

What a beautiful animal, the cheetah is really the fastest animal in the world, great photo

A nice capture of a Cheetah against a well blurred BG, Eleu!
Light and exposure are well handled, and colors are natural.
Good POV and well captured DOF in this shot.
Nice work!

Kind regards,

Its surprising that some motor vehicle hasn't been christened the cheetah since its so fast and accelerates so quickly. It always seem to have a disdainful look as though its looking down its nose at us. A beautiful animal and a fine shot.

Hi Eleu..very nice shot...excellent pose and focus. Well done.


Bonjour Eleu
A different feline than mine in a majestuous pose ; I like the face looking at you with lot of feelings it seems
clarity sharpness and dof are at the best

Hi Eleu,
Great shot MF, love the relaxed feel about this image.Great detals of the spots and characteristic lines around the nose.
