This appears to be over processed, - seems over sharpened, and has some obvious JPEG artifacts. Can you either upload the original shot, (you can do this by clicking on the Upload a Modification link) or let us know what processing you have applied so we can be in a better position to help with critique?

Thanks

I agree that this does look quite heavily processed so more information would be helpful. (Camera settings would be handy, too.)

In terms of the composition, I'm wondering why you didn't opt for a square or even portrait format, to get more of his mane into the frame. It seems a bit odd to be missing both the top and bottom of the mane while including a relatively large amount of background to the left. One reason for including blank space is to better position the subject elements but I don't see much of that here.

The shot does seem to have promise, though.

Oh Wow......superb image.
Look at the 'battle scars' on his beautiful face. They speak volumes and tell a wonderful story of his life.
Just to think, our cats have followed the line of his ancestry.
Truly stunning.......10/10

The image is good, but there is something wrong with your processing. The tonal range is very flat giving an almost pastel effect. Needs more contrast to give a bit of a boost too.
