Loved the picture. Very good animal shot. However, the decision is lost on me. Don't see a connection to the challenge.

Great capture, but doesn't meet the challenge.

And this is a decision because?
06/03/2005 08:47:49 AM
where do you know a "rooikat" from? Is jy Afrikaans? Baie goeie foto!!
06/03/2005 08:06:49 AM
Nice shot, fail to see how this meets the challenge though.
06/02/2005 11:45:03 PM
nice border and great expression, I just can't see where the decision is....sorry. Nice DOF

I'm not sure how this ties in with the challenge theme.

I love the look you captured in his eyes, and that the whole thing is as sharp as it is. Nicely lit. I don't see how it meets the challenge of shooting a decision, though, so I didn't score it as high as I would have otherwise.

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision.
However, I can see how there is a possibility that you wanted to convey the decision to the viewer to run or stay.

Beautiful wildlife shot in EVERY aspect. But what about the challenge?
06/01/2005 09:53:11 PM

06/01/2005 08:36:48 PM
Beautiful photo, but what does this have to do with a decision?
06/01/2005 08:26:52 PM

A beautiful image. The finesse here is spectacular and the energy behind the cat's expression is very powerful. I like the border finishing and the choice to use chiseled sharpening to bring even more definition to the lines of fur, whiskers and eyes. Personally, were I facing such a creature in such proximity of the crop's perspective, my decision would be do I run or just play dead. That said, however the image itself does not invoke the anticipation of a decision being made except that which I dreamt up if I were so close to the subject. Very high marks for a beatiful image, but my personal evaluation of this image says it really has nothing to do with 'capturing a decision'. I offer a 4 solely on the basis of technical achievement.

Doesn't fit the challenge at all, but I'm giving it a 6 because it's a nice photo and you have an Afrikaans title ;)

06/01/2005 03:47:17 PM
Ahhhh. . . a decision "Do I eat him?" or "not" :)

Beautiful photo!!!
06/01/2005 02:01:01 PM
Uhmmm beautiful photograph......but ...... decision?
06/01/2005 01:57:31 PM
Beautiful shot of the cat - truly magnificent! Unfortunately, I don't get what it has to do with decisions or choices. Sorry (4)

I'm sorry. I don't see the decision here.
06/01/2005 09:17:53 AM

06/01/2005 08:03:15 AM
Is the decision to run away or not?
06/01/2005 06:57:24 AM
