Great perspective, composition and content Marc!  The rock textures and markings make a lovely base for this wonderful cat and I know its only a small point, but I even love the way the angle of the tail tip lines up perfectly with the rock outline. :)

Excellent capture, what a lovely setting, good light. I also like the overall pose of the cat.

Excellent! Great action, fine detail, and cool rock.
IMO, the rock overtakes the cheetah - perhaps consider less rock with a tighter crop, if possible.
Fine work!

Thanks Sandy

Appreciate the comment, but you'll rarely find a cheetah high atop a kopje, this is a leopard. :wink:
