First off I have to say WOW. The depth of color hits you right off the bat, as does the piercing sharpness of that gaze. This is a cat species I have never seen before, and I am happy to say this is the best picture I have ever seen of one! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Originality: I thought this is a semi original pose. Unlike many photos I have see this is not a direct frontal shot, nor a hundred percent side shot. I love that the eyes are not focused on the viewer for once, and it has sort of an air of mystery in its gaze.

Technique: I love the color and amazing contrast on this, and it just gives the viewer such an excellent shot of this big cat.

Overall the impact is gorgeous. I can not say much more then I love this and hope to see more from you in the future! (:
