Another nice one, Robert. To be honest, I'm not keen on he background colours, it looks a bit saccharine and unreal. The fur looks fantastic, and their position is really nice. The angle makes it dynamic, too.

Your best animal portrait thus far! It is very endearing.

Very cute. I love the composition of this piece. I'm not sure about the pink in the background although the pastel colours fit in well with the subject. :)

Love it. The pink is a nice change from the usual brown and green.

Thank you Phanque, Tony , Kay , KayM and Chistel In fact the bg colours are less fluo IRL I do not know why the camera boosted the colours that way in fact it is more like early evenning sky colours
Now the blue and violet works for cheetah cubs male and female :)

Great work Robert! I find my colours showing a slightly different hue on occasion as well....just one out of the bunch. Must be my lighting or something. Yesterday I just converted a photo that I took in a wildlife refuge that you can drive through, (could drive through perhaps, since it was taken 40 years ago). It was of a pair of adult cheetahs walking in an open area. I converted it to digital so I can have it a bit larger than my original hard copy. It's on my agenda now along with a hundred others!!:lol: :rolleyes:

Robert they are adorable!
The texture on the fur is great. I like the colors in the sky background, I think it gives it a little pop!
