    Hi Duc,

    You have done well avoiding the problems of zoos, or making the most of them (#1).

    I might have rotated #1 to get the fencing vertical in the background, but I like the composition.

    #2 is possibly the weakest shot, I think I might have cloned out the stick and the leaf, and/or cropped a bit tighter.

    I have to ask; what happened to the WB on #3, was it shot through tinted glass, or is it artificial light indoors? It is good that he? is mostly sharp though, givcen the speed the paw/leg is moving, this was well caught.

    'Take aim', #4, certainly has good timing
    It might stand a small increase in saturation, but otherwise it is fine.

    Cheers,

    Hi Dave, thanks for your comments. It has been a long time since i last posted a thread on CiC. Your reply is truly a welcome home.
    Regarding the #3 shot, i took it through a pane of glass yes. The glass made the scene very bluish so i change the WB to 8000K. Maybe i have overshot the colour temp? I also sharpened the leopard's head a bit.

    Yes - I think you overshot
    If not blown, I'd take a sample off something that should be white, perhaps his/her ear tip - but it could be there isn't anything in shot for this method.

    You've done that well.

    Welcome back, in the first post; the thought had crossed my mind that we hadn't seen you for a while and then I forgot to say it

    Cheers,
