he looks nice, but I am not wrapped in the composition. Seems cutting his feet off here doesn't add anything.

BEAUTY but why crop the feet?

Nice image, but I owuld go for either a tighter crop or open it up to include his whole body.

He looks stuffed. Is this from Cabela's sporting goods store?

Not 100% sure, but this looks a lot like the Biôdome in Montréal. It's a very nice picture. Well done.

PS I don't score lower for Zoo pictures.

I really like the monochromatic feel of the image, esp the warm tones. The light on the face along with the catchlights really engage the viewer. I like the mix of textures with the wall, wood, and fur too. My favorite of the challenge so far.

I wish you hadn't chopped of his legs like that

nice shot, but voting it a bit lower due to not trusting it's in its "natural environment".

I had a Lynx on my front porch one night eating the cat's food! Imagine my surprise, but I have a feeling this cat is in a zoo. I hope I'm wrong.

looks more like a zoo shot than true wildlife. Wish the feet were not cut off
