Not really an action shot per-say but a pre-action shot. The cougar had his eye on another cat in the cage... right after this shot he jumped off the rock, I wasn't fast enough with the camera to capture the jump.

This is a nice shot for the Zoo Challenge. I don't see any relevance to Sport except the title. Pretty far reach. Exposure could be a little brighter. The focus is lost on the cats ear or just right of it. Composition is great I really like how you cropped or set this shot up.

Out of context,

Relies a little too much on the title for my liking.

1 - DMC - No discernible creativity or effort here for the challenge. Nothing 'sporty' about this at all. Nice shot of the cat, but that is not what you were challenged to do.

That's called fishing for challenge :)

Beautiful shot! Only wish was a little larger.

Stretching the topic, but a nice shot

Whoa...that look in his eyes. The paws are ready for the pounce. Fantastic detail and lighting. Well done. Judi

Tight fit into the catagory I think, but what an excellent shot. I think I would have wanted to fit it in as well. Dont be discouraged if this scores poorly. I recently ran across a contest for big cat photos. You should google it and enter this one. Good luck. 8

nice animal shot.

Nice shot. Maybe just a little more contrast would be better. Never wanted to experience hunting from the point of view of prey, myself. :)

If you stalked this in the wild to get this shot, I owe you a better score. If not, I don't see how this "captures the action of your favorite sport". 5

beautiful image, absolutely shoe-horned in. i imagine, though, this will be the highest scoring image of the 'doesn't meet the challenge' group. if you're interested, you might want to check out this thread...

Not hunt action.
07/13/2005 06:32:01 PM
That puts the shoe on the other .. paw... Nice. No action but highly strung it seems the ears do not show lazy.

Lovely picture of a lion but not really sure how it fits the challenge

Beautiful picture. Interesting take on the theme.

beautiful photo - might have done better in the Zoo challenge - but I like it. Would have tried to bring out this cats eyes a bit more if possible.
07/13/2005 12:11:48 PM
Exposure could have been better but the subject and composition is great. I hope you had a spare change of shorts if rhis is an open shot and not a zoo or something.
07/13/2005 11:01:22 AM
wonderful Puma, but.....I need to see a chase or a kill.
07/13/2005 12:52:14 AM
This is a gorgeous shot but probably would have worked better in the zoo challenge. A rather tenuous connection to sports. Love the photo, though.

This is an amazing picture! But I think that it is a stretch for the theme.
