Ya know, I scored this a 5 during the challenge, but I think it has an awful lot of potential. Your focus and DOF are good - and you've got a good natural color base. The shot comes across as a little on the dull side though IMHO. I think if you bumped up the exposure in PP (not sure what editing software you use), increased the contrast & color sat, then did a little selective burning, you could make this puppy pop quite a bit more. It's a very cute pic and technically pretty sound. :-)

This is an ADORABLE picture! I wish I'd voted on the zoo challenge now!! I really like this shot a lot. I think that the composition is very well done and you have a nice clear shot. If you do just a tad bit of post processing, levels adjustment, color balance, perhaps saturation...I think you could have a nice shot for a nature print!

Just an adorable shot..well done :-)

Need more detail in subject, also more light on subject.

I think this would have looked better if you used a slight curves adjustment to lighten up the body and bring out more detail

The subject seems a little dark. Everything else seems a little confusing.

Since I am lacking in technical skills, I cannot give helpful comments. I am strictly a photo buff who is trying to improve, but as to telling you what is wrong or right, I am in no position to say. I am simply voting based on whether I like the picture or not. Sorry, maybe someday I will be able to give helpful advice
