Cheetah Sisters by SilkenWinds Cheetah Sisters by SilkenWinds
EDIT (10-23-13) I have to add (as I can no longer keep silent) that it is sad I will never get another shot like this of these cheetahs at this zoo, as they have put up an awful new fence around the enclosure which makes photography near impossible. If you have half a mind, write to Philly Zoo and tell them how bad a decision you think this was. Keep in mind the cheetahs have never escaped, not even once. But some whiny individual complained and the zoo put this fence up. We should petition to have it taken down. It's not safety, it's a visual block and ruins the enjoyment for viewing and photography.

I do love that enclosure, open-air style is the very best kind.

This is another: THIS PHOTO NEEDS MORE ATTENTION critique ;)

This is a fantastic photo! I love the very high quality as it is perfectly sharp. You are lucky of very patient to capture both of those cats in such a lovely and calm pose. The composition is just perfect!

The only thing I really do not like is some artificial part of the enclosure in the upper left corner, I find it a bit disturbing. But it is just a tiny problem.

I love this photo so much! And those fantastic vibrant colours! :clap: you have all the reasons to be proud of it :D

You may as long as I get full credit for the photo, just provide a link in the description. Outside of DA I don't care, as long as it's for private use only. ;)
