Super cute capture of this little llama! Gorgeous golden back light on his white fur! I don't think you could have asked him to pose more perfectly.

The one suggestion I'll make is to watch in camera and when you edit your photos for distracting elements. (They get all photographers at some point.) Train yourself to see them and crop them out. It will save time, if you do it in camera.

In this photo, I feel the horizon line is a distraction. We're missing enough of the tops of the trees and the bright sunlight draws your eyes away from the darling llama. (Eyes are drawn to bright spots.)

Darling photo of such a sweet kitty! Nice side lighting.

2 things I can see that could make the photo more "professional"
- crop the spot in the upper right where the sheet is folded and shows underneath brown area. It's a distraction.
- next time make sure the focus is on the eyes. They're the most important part of an animal or person portrait. It's on the nose here. I make sure my focus dot is on the eyes on my SLR. I may have to tilt the camera a bit after that for the composition, but the eyes are usually still sharp. Hope that helps!

Keep up the good work! You'll go far!
