Pali, your ZOO photography is getting better and better. This shot is wonderfully detailed, I like very nice sharpness. But I think the photo would look better and more natural, if there was less space left on the right. The cat would look more natural and the whole photo would have some dynamic. I really do not think that it is the best idea to pu the main subject to the centre. In my eyes, no space on the right and a bit more space on the left would by simply better.

But it is really nice shot, so colourful and vivid!
What do you think?

Nice work Pali. I love your choice of depth of field, it really sets the Amur apart from the background :)

I do agree with Woxy though, I think a slightly different composition would have worked better :)

I'll second woxys' critique--I would have put the subject more to the right (but then I'm an armchair critic). I would also try to increase the contrast between the subject and the background, and if that didn't look right I'd try *de*creasing the contrast--since leopards have evolved to blend into the background there's a chance it might look kinda cool.

It's fine as it is, tho. Good shot.
