Very nice set Armando.

Some C&C.
1. Try to exclude ANY man-made external intrusion on your shots (fences, poles etc.)
2. Heavy shadow on some faces (e.g. Giraffes) detracts - try (not always possible) to shoot from the best position (see #1) !
3. The shot of the running cheetah is easily the best shot for me (all four feet off the ground - excellent). Outstanding ! If I were you I'd would spend hours on removing all signs of the chain-link fence, by using a repair or crop tool, then you'd have a wonderful shot.

Frogfish,

Thanks for your Comments. I will take it in consideration for future shots.

With the Giraffe there was a single position and I have to wait for the Giraffe to move. The Zoo was pack, and because it was a baby Giraffe in the nurse everyone was there to see it.

With the running Cheetah, I thought about it, but did not edit just crop. In the other hand the close-up on the Cheetah’s face you can see the trainer's leg on the back. The trainers are close to them all the time except when they are running.

Thanks again and I will try to improve my position and handling the shadows and manmade objects.
