Great focus of the eyes, I think a tighter crop is needed however.
Well done on 16th place.

Congrats on your PB with this shot Andrea. Great pose from the cat. Sameer got a shot similar to this one also. I thought it might have been his shot. I to would like to see it cropped differently.

Perfect focus and choice of dof. You have captured all the intensity of the leopard's stare.

i wish he was not dead center; this is a good capture, with nice lighting & clarity of the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2007 12:47:29 AM
I am not sure having this subject in the center helps this shot out. Good lighting and detail though
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! Great capture.

Another from Milwaukee! This guy really put on a show for us. Great shot.

beautiful animal, fantastic lighting, the strong diagonals especially on the R tend to distract - a vignetting mask may have helped

good rich colors and i like the intense stare. not crazy about the composition, but it does work to some degree
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2007 09:25:31 AM
hmmm, normally i am not a fan of centered composition, but i like this. there is no eye contact so it puts the viewer in a slightly uncomfortable position because the animal wants to pounce on something right behind or to the side of the viewer. i like the blue in the eye it sets them apart from the orange color scheme of the rest of the photo.

06/05/2007 04:36:11 PM
Amazing colours and sharpness. It looks really soft too, but I don't think I'd pet it.

I came back to bump this up to a 10. This is stunning.

good detail, and sharpness...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2007 05:42:56 PM
Looks like it is ready to pounce on you! Wonderful, crisp detail and your tones are purrfect! (sorry)

Nice image of a beautiful cat and thanks to you, I now know these magnificant animals have spots on their toes! A tight crop would work so well on this image, imo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2007 04:53:37 PM
Thisi s nice and sharp, but a little too centered for my taste. I would have cropped the sides off and gone 640px vertically.

06/04/2007 02:32:36 PM
Like the centered composition. Works well with this subject. Nice focus. great colors. Terrific DOF. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2007 02:12:49 PM
The tones and colors are really quite amazing and even the centered composition seems to work very well. The intensity you captured in his eyes is great. Very well done!

Insanely good image - crisp, great lighting, subtle background. What did you do to upset this cat?

Dang! Someone's walking on thin ice! Great pose and expression. Nice detail and lines. (or spots, lol)

This has Elsapo's style written all over it ;) Gotta love the look of this. Excellent shot. The centered composition works well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2007 04:35:41 PM
This is a great shot, but I would have cropped tighter.

wow...amazing colour and a great shot! I wonder if this would have been better with a rule of thirds or even a square crop composition...nice otherwise 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2007 01:14:09 AM
I wish the composition wasn't so centered and that the POV wasn't so straight on (I'd like to see more of the body), but DANG!!! You nailed the focus on this one. Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2007 12:20:23 AM
Really nice colors and crisp image. Would have really poped with a more shallow depth of field!
