Not much taller than the grass.
Good light to add to the photo.

I like the placement in the frame but feel the image may be improved with a touch more contrast IMHO.

Love the soft light. Also like the fact that the animal is off center. That being said, I personally would crop the right hand side just a bit.

Love it. The comp, the colours, the detail on the Springbok, all perfect, with everything so well balanced. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful shot, and very well done. I thing the contrast addition helped make it pop more, well done.
