Just a quick upload today as I have very little time.
I am not totally sure about this one, as in my opinion there are various little niggles about some aspects of the photo.
It was very difficult to catch him striding as he was quite nimble on his feet.
Anyway I thought it worth uploading to get some other opinions and critique.
He is a very beautiful cat, but have I done him justice in this view, we will see by your C&C's. I hope you like him.
Have a good week and many thanks for all the C&C's.
Steve.

A great image capturing the intense look on the face. Just a shame about the cut offs top and bottom.

I think you have this one from WHF? What a good face capture of him, maybe a cropped head view? as such a shame not to see the rest of this magnificent beast.

I think you have done it justice - critique - would have been nice to get all the animal in shot - and as suggested the head shot is good. I like the lighting you have and the gaze on something that has taken his eye - Great shot - hope you took some more - nice to see

Good attempt, though I feel a portrait orientation would have been more appropriate. Pity he's missing a paw and his face is in the shadow but it's a hard shot to time. You've certainly captured the look of total concentration on his face.
