First Impressions
Some quality issues mainly with this image. I gave this a 4 during voting. Looked like a zoo photo to me, but I can now see from your comments that looks like it was a natural scene. Shivthar Ghal looks like an interesting place which no doubt has bountiful photographic opportunities.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
The tree branch creeping in at the top left corner is distracting, but fairly minor. Depending on the quality and scene you had to work with, I think not such a tight crop, giving more context would possibly have been better. As is, with this (seemingly) tight crop, the quality has deteriorated too much and the image suffers.

.025 seconds? - if so, this would also explain the lack of clarity. Regarding your title, although fairly minor, just seemed a little trite for me, but your call, of course.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
236/418 is fairly middle of the pack and a score of 5.59 is quite good, especially for the placement.

You have one especially helpful comment received. An average of 6.75 from your commenters overall, doesn't seem to reflect what most were saying.

Well spotted, good potential, just trying to get a more steady capture and then more attention paid to composition of the final image in processing would produce a stronger image.

quite over-processed...the image is good, but the processing has made it a little digital
