Hi! Hereís a comment from the Critique Club.

First Impression:
Eyes drawn directly at the animals face, then up to the sign, over to the sky , the dark tree on the right and then back to the animal. Then the more practical question, was it running at you? Good thing you were looking up!

Composition:
Found the sign, sky and trees distracting. Given your subject, tighter cropping may have helped.

Subject:
No problem meeting the challenge. Animals expression is really good! I liked your title. It went with the expression.

Technical:
With no post editing comments, I donít know what you were trying to achieve. A little more contrast may have improved the flatness of the picture. I found the focus soft with nothing sharp. Given your comment, you may not have had time to keep your subject in focus!

Summary:
The subject and mood were stronger than the technical aspects of the picture.

Thats funny! I might have cropped out the left side so that it would have removed the sign and moved the critter to the left 1/3.

Cute, but the image could use a shot of contrast. Seems a bit grey and not black and white.
