Leopard 13

By TornadoTys
Yet Another upload of a big cat from my Big Cat Shoot at Colchester Zoo, sorry guys...
This Big Cat is Amur Leopard.
I have tried to upload images which have a different feel, composition about them. Problem is there is so many images of these amazing cats it is very difficult to choose.
The Big Cat Shoot was one of my best ever visits to Colchester Zoo and would recommend it as must do.
This image I also have in colour, however I think the B&W has more drama and visual impact.

Hope you guys like the editing

Beautiful image of this animal.
B&W would be my preferred choice, as in that way composition takes a more prominent role, without the distraction of colour.
Good toning too, and the darkened background really forces the viewer to look at the animal only.

That was indeed my intention to force the view almost straight away to only look at the Leopard and not the surroundings.
I f this image was on location in thr Leopards native country then the environment is also the story. Zoo enclosures however natural the design is, you can not notice that it is just that that, an enclosure !
