Gorgeous! True royalty. Great warm colors and nice details in the fur. Was there a steak hanging off in the distance to mesmerize them? (kidding)

Instantly when I saw this photo it reminded me of one I put in a Freestudy a couple years ago. Yours has an interesting, classic portrait feel to it with a nice distant stare. Mine? It's pretty silly, but the quality is still there (I think anyway)...

Yours scores a 6.6, and mind scored a 5.9. I'd be curious what people think is the reason for the .7 difference.
