I was really drawn to this shot. The use of grayscale against the black background brings a very interesting and alluring affect.

This photo brings a chilling vibe. I could stare into the eyes forever. It's very mysterious and i feel as if I'm the prey.

In my opinon I would lighten up the face slightly but thats just me.

It would also be more pleasing ( to me) if more of the cheetah was visible to cover more of the background

Averall I think this is a great shot. It is very well done and unlike anything I've seen before.
What do you think?

I love this photo for multiple reasons.The first that strikes me and as it does for so many of the viewers is the way the space has been used.The Cheeteah is placed right in the middle and in sucha pose that it is almost like a straight line on a black background.This creates a very visually appelaing effect.Also showing the Cheetah in black and white is an interesting and very beautiful way of showing this magnificent animal.It has an almost surrealistic feel to it which is due to also due to the lack of colour in the animal.I congratulate the photographer for showing such a hauntingly beautiful photo to us.
