A major no-no in my book is... not being able to see the eyes.

An interesting statement that loses a bit of impact for me wihtout being able to see the eyes.

Great gacial expression - the black and white is effective here. Like the subtle angle of the bars.

maybe in color this would be more interesting ..? the fur would contrast nicely against the grid of the cage

It would be nicer if you show the eyes.

The fencing is distracting. A shorter dof with focus on the animal would have worked better, imo.

Poignant scene. This could have been made more impactful by offsetting the subject to the right, leaving some space on the left following his gaze into freedom. Shadows are a bit too dense on his face and I feel I need to see the eyes.

He sure looks un-happy, nice capture.
