Thanks andy. Cropped it quite alot to the original as it was taken through glass and alot of practice needed on that one!!! They are all rescue cases who have suffered from abuse or experimentation hence the look in their eyes. Kathrynlouise

Welcome to EPZ Kathrynlouise and thanks for the pic. As Andy says it's a powerful shot and you have definitely captured the personality of the animal. That counts for a lot. Shooting through glass is not easy and the light conditions may not have been perfect either. There is a lot of burn out on the foot. It's a bit tricky - you need light to take the shot but not too much that it gives you problems with the exposure. A bit of cloud cover which acts as a diffuser for the sunlight may help.

The shot tells a story which makes the pic all the more compelling.

Hope you enjoy being part of the EPZ community Smile

Best wishes

It is said that we are more affected by what we see than what we hear. Very true in this case. This a valiant effort given the harsh lighting and glass.
Thanks for posting this image.

A very poignant image, - the expression says it all.

I have uploaded a mod that I hope you like, and does justice to the subject.
