Good lord this is frightening! REALLY nice there's a cage, yes?? Gah... nightmares. I'm gonna have nightmares. And I sleep with two cats who have fur, and teeth. Perhaps they'd best sleep elsewhere tonight...

I thought this was a great capture. It added some character to a zoo-type shot. Great detail on the face and what a pose! The colortone really enhanced the caged mood.

Congratulations on your 6.3 and excellent placement in the FS. This guy is scary. I laughed at your comment about first thinking he was cute.

Powerful and very effective - as near perfect an impression of fury as you can get. This is a great image and could very well be a iconic statement for any number of current social issues - very high WOW factor, strong artistic impression and a technical success in every way. Well done.

And not looking too happy about it. Or is obsessively licking the cage and on the way to developing a nasty sore on his tongue. Poor baby :-( Selective desat does a nice job of emphasizing his expression.

OK, when this one popped up, it startled me a bit. Overall nice capture.
