19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fluid Cheetah

This image was shot in Masai Mara on 21/10/21. I was following this Cheetah for a long time. After taking some sharp images I thought of experimenting with a panning shot. Luckily the cheetah was walking across in front of me to try the shot. I selected a low shutter speed of 1/10 to capture the motion and had to use a very narrow aperture of f/32 to cut down the light
