Great photo :D It works for me anyway :P

Those Leopard can be very bothersome, always hiding :(

Hello,
This is a nice shot of a gorgeous animal but really honestly I'm not sure about the post-processing.
The image is a little bit flat because of the low contrast. It's too much "grey" instead of "black and white".
Hope you'll not be mad at me because of this little critique.
Regards,
Seb-photos.

yay! The first guy with a 'real' critique. Thanks! :)
Yes, I know in the Background is too much grey but the problem was that a grid was in the way therefor the picture had a grey stitch.
I tried to make the bg dark and the leopard bright but it brought not so much.
Thank you.
Reagrds,
Frederic

You're very welcome.
I guess this could be improved really simply.
Would you like that I post-process this a little bit differently in order to show you what could be done? If yes and if the result suits to you, I'll be able to explain you the method.
Have a nice day.

So the bg is now a bit darker and with more contrast but you can nevertheless try to edit if you want. :)
By the way do you have Skype?

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply.
It is difficult to post-process a photo without the raw but I would have processed it preferably in that way >

Tell me...

And no, I don't use skype, sorry.
