This is absolutely stunning. I love the details and B&W works well here. Great capture. Great work!

what a great first entry! I think if you had rotated it a smidge to straighten the eyes to the horizon it would have broke 6. :)

Can't believe I haven't commented on this image. Unfortunately, I missed voting on this challenge. This is so raw and "real" that it's uncanny. Vastly underrated IMHO. You really captured this animal's spirit.

Wow, I love this! Great capture. I might've cropped just a tiny piece off the top so that the cat fills the entire frame and more focus is on his face.

seems flat. Needs more contrast or maybe try color instead of b&w.

Really nice shot! I would love to see it in color and cropped square at the chin, and a little off the top, to just see his beautiful expressive face. 8
