taken at edinburgh museum, a very lonely looking cub though was taken in a very busy place, it looked very cold when isolated from the surroundings, and makes for an interesting shotGrin

fantastic capture here.
even though i supspect this was a stuffed animal you have managed to portray a real sense of movement, and oddly a little sadness in the eyes.
if not a stuffed animal then even better shot to get the emotion in the eyes and the close up detail

I assume this animal is stuffed, Sean, but it looks extremely realistic, and as you say is interesting. Apart from missing off the end of the tail, I think you have composef it very well, giving it space to move into and using an angle that makes it look as if it is watching you. You have good detail throughout, but it's a pity the lighting didn't fall on its face. There are obvious signs of it being in a museum, for instance the overhead light and strong shadow, the plain ground and the parts of another animal behind it. There is little you could have done to avoid all of these, but it would be an interesting exercise to completely alter the background and place the cub in an environment that would suggest the wild. I don't know how good you are at manipulations, but it would prove an interesting exercise. However, the one big drawback is the fur, which it would be extremely difficult to get looking natural.
