I must say, this is probably one of the most appealing feline shots I've ever seen! It is hard to capture an emotion from an animal, but in this case it is clear which kind of emotion it is expressing. The shine of the eyes is so captivating, and the glow and lighting in the fur is beautifully accentuated on the top and face edges. The colour balance is also good, as the focus is more in the warm tones on the cub, while the pastel like colours in the blankets are still nice but not too distracting of the focal point. The focus is very good and the animal looks presentable with no distracting flaws. The fleece blankets display an extra touch of softness and innocence. Overall a beautiful composition!!

5 stars for impact, but I suppose it's because I love baby cheetahs so much :love:
I like the way this photo is composed, I like how it is not centered and I love the expression you have caught on the cubs face. I must also say congrats on the clear shot since I see it was 1/25 seconds. Was it very dark? I see the ISO was 1600 which has caused just a tiny bit of noise in the photo but nothing major at least. If possible try to get is a bit lower :)
But other than that it's a fantastic photo. Well done :D

Hey guys!!!! do you like lions, tigers, cheetahs, and or many other big cats.

If so then i have some bad news they're all dying rapidly and if we don't do something about it they're going to go extinct!!!! Right now there are are less than 2000 lions out there, now i know what your think holy crap thats a ton of lions, sure that'd be a lot if it were in one city or even a state, but it's not thats all over the world. There are less tigers in the wild than in captivity. That is horrible.

Do you want that, because i sure as hell don't we need to all get together and cause an UPROAR for them. National geographic is starting a program to help save them. There is a few ways now i know paying money is kinda hard for people, and yes that is a way to help so don't be stingy. There is also other ways like watching a youtube video, because for every view the lions get 10 cents now that doesn't sound like a lot but in actual if there is 20000 views than they get 20000 dollars. so get to watching. another way is to just go on your favorite social network and cause some commotion.

And if you have a tumblr than you should follow me because i made one just for the occasion.

here's some links
