Not much to critique here. I think it's a great shot.

There was nothing else or better to do here. The only missing thing could be a warmer light, but u can't have it on request. Composition, dof, and the overall monochrom tone are excellent. All this makes an beautiful leopard portait.

The problem for me with this pic is that it really does look like the leopard is going to get his eye poked out with that branch.
It's a great pose,I think if you had cloned out the branch it would have given the leopard the space it needs.
Highlights and shadows can be adjusted with software if you want to change the light.
A good image that just needs fine tuning.

Agree with 1st 2 posters on this one, I like the shot and the pose.
Although as Brian has said, you could adjust the warmth of this light with PS.
Also the branch if you wanted to remove it would not be to hard to clone out.

You could even crop it in a portrait orientation which might work.

Nice capture.

I like this, althoughI feel the comp. is kind of unbalanced - the leopard on one side vs. the branch on the other. I'd consider possibly cropping the branch out from the right and just concentrating on the leopard; just a thought

This is as good as it gets, wildlife certainly Leopards are so difficult to observe let alone photograph. The enviroment is natural, makes the shot. Too many photographers want clean backgrounds. Nature is not a film set, this is brilliant, I hope you made more of this fantastic opputunity. Ron.

ive looked at this shot for the last 10 mins or so and cant make my mind up, either its a very good shot or you have done a good job of replacing the background.
for me the leopard seems to focused compared to the background, there seem to be a very sharp edge all around the creature that does,nt match the background.
maybe its me or maybe you should feather the edges a bit more.
whatever, i like it
