(Not voting) Certainly it can be sad to see a creature of the wild caged rather than roam free. The photo is just average but could be alot stronger if 1) the wild cat was facing and making full eye contact with your audience as that eyes are windows to the soul 2) harsh flash was not used because there are harsh shadows of the fence on the big cat as well as his shadow cast on the ground. 3) the use of flash also blew out some details in the lighter areas of the fur and there is a loss of rich color tone. In my humble opinion a higher ISO and faster shutter speed (and if necessary a noise reduction program to get rid of noise) would have yielded a stronger photo with sharp detail, no harsh shadows or blown highlights and perhaps even richer color tones.

It would have been way better if he didn't look like he was smiling. But I imagine he was probably panting. You're right though. Big cats don't belong in cages.

Sorry for the plight of all captive animals but I'm not seeing sadness in his little eyes. Good luck.
