Great find. One of the best in this challenge. I wonder what this would look like if you desaturated everything except the mouth. I usually don't like selective desaturation but this might work.

Fantastic catch. When looking at big predators, one of the things I'm most fascinated by are their 'weapons'. Super job! [10]

Scary! Nice focus and timing. Wonder if it's a tad oversharpened though?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent moment to capture! Crop, composition, color, POV, focus all good. Not sure what if anything I would do different here. I think this can be used for one of those anti-motivational posters, pm me if you need examples. Could be a print... 8 - good luck int he challenge!

It seems slightly grainy to me. Maybe oversharpening? Still very nice for catching the moment. 9.

Great DOF and capture! Very well composed shot. Lighting may be a tad harsh, but still a great job.
