the moment is a great one, and considering it was mothers day, it was appropriate, but with all due respect to the photographer, there are improvements that could have been made to make this an even better photo.

The photo appears to be over exposed and flat and i just cant see too much detail in the face. Also, i just noticed there is another cheetah cub behind the back leg/rock of the mother... if the photographer was another 5 feet over to the right it would have been a much better picture.
And the out of focus rocks on the foreground keep taking my attention away from the cheetahs. A tighter crop might have solved that though?

It's a good photo, but not one of my POTD favorites.
