So Hahn23 was very wrong. Your shot was taken "live" and you survived!!!!

I hope those fools didn't score you low b/c of their ideas about "wild".

Great shot.

Hahn23 must have commented on 20 shots with the same quote below.

If no one would have survived this encounter in the wild then how and where the hell does all the other "big cat" shots come from that I see all over the freaking internet, books, TV etc...etc....

Boy, he's a fat cat. Seems just a little under exposed to me.

Cougars are my favorite big cat. Love the lighting and nice crisp focus! Would love to know where you managed to photograph one in the wild...would be my dream to be able to do the same!

amazing clarity and color, great dof.. wish the bit of light green foliage on the bottom left third of the screen were gone..it's bright and distracting.. still giving this 8

Beautiful shot with nice detail, although I would consider toneing down the bright green leaves in the fg so that the attention stays on the cat.

Good sharpness and color. I find the bright OOF leaves to be distracting.
