Save Me From Extinction

By Endangered  
With this shot. I wanted to keep the darkness of the shot to show what humans are doing by killing these cats. The flames and the fact that Artur is walking through the flames is to show that although the heat is on for the survival of the Amur Leopard they are still moving forward. There are less than 35 Amur Leopards left in the wild. I merged a bonfire with the cat.

So beautifully done. Love your idea and thoughts. Life is sometimes unthinkable the devestation we humans have caused. A beautiful tribute to a beautiful creature. Very well done indeed.

A powerful and thought provoking piece of work. Love the way Arturs whiskers seem to be glowing! Great bit of manipulation.
