Two jaguars being grumpy between each other about where they're allowed to stand (the one on the left was there first and was saying 'no' to the newcomer).

Color Balance
USM x 2

Then I resized for the contest, and did:

Also, the aperture says f/7.1. While that is the aperture the camera was on (says the exif data) there's another aperture in the exif data that says 7.0, so I wasn't sure which to take, but seeing as 7.1 is a standard value, I chose that one instead. I hope that's not a problem...

Nice action shot - seems a little bit of a squeeze for polka dots, but what the heck...maybe a little dodging on the main cheetah's face?

Can't quite see this as polka dots, but it's an interesting and well captured scene nonetheless.
