Wow this is truly wonderful it just stands out on the page with the brightness of how it's managed. It's great how you were able to get all three lined up, making it seem like they were fading as it got more far away.

It just makes a person feel like the cheetahs are laying right there in front of you. The quility I also must say is very good and has a great impact on a person.

The spots and the facial expressions on the Cheetahs show their true personaility of them.
Even from a true distance they bounce out of the photo, I say nice work, and beautiful angle, great work.
What do you think?

This is an awesome piece! I love how you were able to capture all three cheetahs lines up like that, all looking in the same direction. You really personified them by doing that; it makes them seem like they're three friends lounging on the beach.
The one thing that bothers me a little bit is that with each cheetah, they become a little more blurred. If they were all equally as sharp, I think that the picture would be more about all three as a group and less about the first one, which is what my eye is focused most on.
Overall, I really like this picture. It's sweet and funny, and brought a smile to my face. Great job!

:love: I love the way you managed to get all three cheetahs in one single photoshot, and with them all looking the same direction. It's not often that these sort of oppurtunities appear and its great to see people getting them! :aww:
Brilliant photo, and a nice image! :dance:
