Pretty incredible. In some type of game preserve or totally wild? I've always wanted to check something like that out.

That was from a tiger reserve in Central India. This leopard behave like a tiger, totally unmindful of humans and vehicles around him.

I see that you were using the 300 f2.8 with the 1.4 extender, giving you a maximum aperture of f4. . You chose to shoot this at f6.3.

Given that the 300 f2.8 with the 1.4 is tack sharp wide open at f4, I am interested in knowing ..... if you were able to shoot this over again, would you still choose to shoot at f6.3, for the greater depth of field, or would you shoot wide open at f4 instead? . Or, would you shoot it at f8 or f9 instead?

I am also curious to know if you chose f6.3 because you wanted the vegetation in the background to be more in focus than it would have been if you had shot it at f4. . I am just generally interested in knowing what people were going for when they chose settings, and what the reasons are behind the choices.

Wow....cat or photog, it sure is a bold image! Well done!

@tomR: My bet, given the gear and settings, is Shutter priority w/ Auto ISO landed there. Just for fun speculation; be curious to hear OPs actual setup. :)

You are absolutely correct Tom. F/4 is tack sharp on this lens. This Leopard had just descended from the tree that you see on the left and had started walking towards my jeep which was sandwiched among many giving me a narrow gap to focus. I wanted to retain some background also and that is why I chose F/6.3. I wasn't very sure upon F/4 in the circumstances.

Best

Jai.

Thanks, Jai!

I always enjoy hearing what a photographer was thinking before and during the shot.
