Took this a while back.Decided to differnt lighting effects on it using photoshop.Also boosted the contrast up a bit cause colours were a bit pale.
All comments welcome.
Please let me know how you think i could improve.

Id have love to have seen a catchlight in both eyes, not sure how you are lighting this(natural or studio?) so it might not have been easy. Also, if its a studio shot, a bit or rim lighting from behind Otter's head would make him/her(?) stand out from the background. Thats my taste however, and some people would prefer to see the subject fade into the darkness. Just something to try next time maybe.

Little bit hot on the top of his head as well, but white fur on black background is always going to be tricky to meter correctly.
