Okay...I think this one was vastly underated in this challenge. I love the golden lighting, the detail in the eyes and fur and the framing with the leaves. The square crop really brings the viewer's focus right to the animals face.

This is just awesome. I love the intense stare on her. Those eyes are just beautiful and you have captured them well.

I missed this one in commenting. I think that's partially because I often go through and give the good shots good scores, and assume they'll get plenty of comments. :-) Great kitty pic - love the look in those eyes!

Not sure about the square aspect ratio, more space to the left would balance it up a bit more

Great closeup of the eyes. The blurred leaves in the front are a little bit distracting, but not too bad. Good use of natural light.

I ike his position in the frame and his strong expression. Very good focus and sharpness. The light and shadow on his right ear is slightly distracting, but that is minor
