Symmetry with beautiful back lighting, BUT no sales....



Great shot, Paul! I would have maybe removed that small dark-colored branch at the top (above their heads) and crop a bit that they are dead centered. Anyway, it's amazing that such a great photo has no sales...

Awesome pic, and I agree with Emil - clean up the little branch in the middle.

I'd play with this pic a little, Paul - it's awesome as it is, but if it's not getting noticed, make another version that's slightly different. You just never know, it really deserves to do better!

@fatir29 Incredible horse series! Is this 85mm or 120mm or? Were you far away behind bushes or in the center of the galloping? _)

@Emil O the cheetah is the best and the shot is great! Life in captivity.
@cpaulfell cool pic with zebras! Agree with @Emil O about the branch. You are lucky you have no sales still because you can delete the photo, improve and upload again - and one more chance for the photo to be noticed.

Snakes can sometimes be a challenge to capture:


California King snakes are fairly docile, especially in the morning before things warm up:

Gopher snakes can sometimes be difficult to detect, as they blend in so well the the background:

The natural camouflage of a  Pacific Gopher Snake (Pituophis catenifer ) makes it almost invisible, as it slithers through the woods in the hills of Monterey, California.



When they're small, they are quite cute:




My dog Melody likes to chase them:

When they get big, they're a little scary:




Don't try this at home.  (this guy was over 4 feet long!)
