    Cheetah 2

    Previously I posted a Cheetah catching the early morning sun. This is the same one but a bit later in the morning as she walked down a small incline through the long grass. The sun was by now behind clouds but the autumn colours still added a complimentary backdrop for this magnificent animal and the scene was just calling for the picture to be taken.

    Beautiful shot! Very jealous!

    I agree the white balance looks a little on the warm side. Couldn't you have got the cheetah to hold a grey card for a test shot, before he / she posed for the final shot?!

    Hi Sahil and Tommy, many thanks for the kind comments. Well picked up on the WB I will check, but I thought it was ok during PP, I know it was a very cloudy day and about 0730hrs. I remember at the time I had my D90 WB set to "cloudy", maybe I should have left it on "auto"?

    I tried with the grey card but she was not very obliging and she was moving pretty fast.
