Cheetah

Last year April during a hike I almost bumped into a couple cheetahs sunbathing in the Eastern Cape. It was hot and they were fairly inactive. I could approach them up to about 2 meters distance and not a centimeter closer. Anyway I got the opportunity to picture one and processed the original RAW file in B&W reduction leaving only the hairs and the eyes of the animal visible next to a bit of background. Last week I started to add some colour in the image again and this is the result.
