My wife and I had a fantastic late afternoon tracking and trying to keep pace with a pack of Wild Dog that were hunting, first Warthog, then Impala, and after many frantic chases with no success, the leading trio called it quits @ sunset.

Left a hint of FG/BG detail for more depth in the scene avoiding a full silhouette.

beautiful scene Marc. Looks like they're off for a sundowner. The retention of detail allows a glimpse of wildlife in the bg.
Make your life spectacular!

I like this- a beautiful scene with a story to tell. The Dogs are well poised for an excellent composition.
