Thank You everyone for the very supportive comments, it is appreciated.

Photographers I think have a number of things in common, but the one that I think stands out the most is we are never quite satisfied, always a little critical of our own work (and sometimes others, like the 4 million dollar image), always looking at our Images and perhaps thinking "if I'de only done......." it would be a better Image.

Today I find myself revisiting places I had been to years ago, Florence, Alaska, Morocco etc, places where I'de taken Photos & now find myself thinking "what was I thinking ??".

The Night time Images of the Leopards was a case in point, had tried this some years back, abject failure.

Last year I went back, more experience, better equipment, and a Plan, as Eldar mentioned, all these things go together to hopefully take us from "Photos" to "Image Making".

I think I've Posted this Image before on the 1Dx thread, getting old, start to loose track of things.

1Dx 300f/2.8 II, shot @ f/7.1 & 1/250th ISO2500
Incredible shot.  I would not have changed a thing!

Not really wild animals though these two can both be wild at times, especially the bay. (Proof Attached).

Two of my horses snapped during the last few rays of a sunny evening. Whilst most people on CR suffer from G,A,S, I unfortunately suffer from something much worse: E.A.S - Equine Acquisition Syndrome  :(
