SPECTACULAR image Luis! Outstanding - fantastic - awesome! All of Kate's questions, and more! Please share details on this amazing image! #1667448

Luis Louro August 02, 2005

thank you guys!!! I took this shot in South Africa, inside Krugger Park, in a private reserve called Mala Mala! I've never seen so many leopards in all my African journeys!!!

for this picture I used two images, taken in the same place, but at diferent times, the sky and the leopard, who had a very dull sky!

I'm usually against this procedure in wildlife photos, but this was my one and only experience!!! #1668115
