that is a good softening job. Good composition and exposure too.

I think a closer crop might push this over the edge. Othewise - excellent photo!!

Wow. I've never seen one of these before and I watch a lot of Nat'l Geog! Great shot and nicely done on the DOF. Good luck.

8 - Very good. Criticism; perhaps looks a little 'softened', but it works. The capture and 'composition', choice of crop/framing, is what I like most in this. Just to contradict that, if the tail were not cropped, would be good (depending what you had to work with of course), but then you'd likely lose the detail you have here, and/or, just be a different style/shot again (obviously). Possibly contrast/blow out issues in the 'hair' but, very difficult to adjust this I imagine, especially while trying to retain the 'softness'. Still like to see a little more detail in the face, especially the 'right' eye with the same 'sparkle' as the 'left'.

I'd have cropped it closer and cut off some of the bottom.
