Your focus, and depth of focus are both perfect. You have creates such an amazing sense of power and movement - I can almost feel the leap. Well done. 9

STUNNING, the left incisor looks a little funny though, but wow, amazing capture, crisp and clean and in your face

Its a shame the eyes aren't in focus, because it would have been a much more engaging image! Kudos to you though for getting this full frontal image filler!

Lot's of these photos on this site. But none with as much detail and life. This is a great crop/composition. 9.

Awesome!

Great capture. I like the intensity of the eyes. It does however look like you focused on the nose though. Fortunately there is enough DOF to capture the eyes well. Exposure is well handled and the white in the fur isn't "too" white while the blacks have a nice range of greys down to pure black.

Awesome capture & dof! Well done.

01/16/2009 08:20:51 AM
that is a serious face - i think i will comment quickly before it bites....

really nice full face effort - the details in the nose are outstanding but i almost wish for a bit more DOF to really allow the eyes to be completely in focus
