Greetings from the Critique Club -

Congrats on a 6+ score in the FS. Always good to be above that benchmark.

I love good pics of big cats. But personally you lost me with the selective desat. You caught good focus, a decent pose, and pretty nice detail. But the desat really took away from the impact this image could have had. Either full black and white with a bit of dodging and burning to bring out the contrast of the fur or full color with saturation tweaked up a bit and then burned for contrast could have made this image pop more and easily score higher. You have a great strong animal here yet with the soft pink and baby blue being the colors showing it just leaves the wrong feel. I tend to hyper process alot of my big cat pics and I could see me going to town on this one so please take my comment with that into consideration.

Again - nice general pic, good score (and a new image in your top rated pics is always a good thing). I would love to be shooting where you are. Good luck in future challenges!

I'm not a big fan of selective desat techniques but every once in awhile a nice one like this comes along!

Very pretty, I love the nose & eyes.

Beautiful image, but, IMVHO, the selective colouring sort of kills it. ~7 (9 all b/w)

Great photo, but I find the pink nose very distracting from an incredible picture.

Beautifull shot, nice selective saturaion. I would love to see it without the selective saturationo too.

This is a beautiful portrait of a beautiful beast. For me (and these are really only my thoughts and not criticism) I would have preferred just to have the eyes in colour. The red nose distracts from the beauty of the rest of the face.
