This shot is incredible, suprised it didnt score higher. The colors are so nice, the yellows and reds in the rock blend nicely with the fur coat.

He needs a pillow doesn't he? Poor guy. Nice title and good dof.

lovely shot IMO slightly too soft focus, would prefer slightly sharper.

Very nice job indeed. 10 from me. I really like how close this is and how he is napping.

I think more depth of field would have helped this shot

Title made me chortle. I wish her face had been a bit more in focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The focal point seems to be the ear/left paw rather than the face which I find distracting a little. I want to be drawn to the face and it isn't happening. I Still like the image, just not fond of the focus. Good Luck.

It's not obvious where the focus is. Since the leopard eyes are closed, I think it would have been better to focus more on the nose.

The face seems a litle soft, I think because the focus point is a bit beside it, but a nice portrait of wild life or captivity in this case.

Really nice capture. I love the tones - the matching color from the background. Well done.

The focus on his face could have been just a little sharper

I love this one! Love the colors and the peaceful look on that huge cat's face!!!

You know those shots you just keep coming back to because they have that certain je ne sais qua? Well this one is it for me in this challenge. It's beautiful. Amazingly warm tones. I still can't put my finger on what it is about this image that I find a little off, but the whole thing continues to grow on me. Bumping up...

Love the color tone and the softness of the face. One of my top picks.

Since I am lacking in technical skills, I cannot give helpful comments. I am strictly a photo buff who is trying to improve, but as to telling you what is wrong or right, I am in no position to say. I am simply voting based on whether I like the picture or not. Sorry, maybe someday I will be able to give helpful advice
