Caught this guy while eating. Had to shoot through his cage screening at the zoo.

Like an idiot, I sized this down to 200k - forgetting I could submit it at 300k. Nine minutes until rollover. Darn it!

Just read your notes. If it lost any detail to compression, it was not evident. I'm anal about spotting JPEG compression and I didn't notice anything. It got a 7 from me.

I know how hard it is to catch some of these animals, you've done a good job, there seems to be some noise in the bg, but may be my monitor

Took trip to the zoo, eh? :-) You handled the environment well. Seeing some artifacts of the enclosure and it's a little bit grainy. Nice detail in the hair. Good luck.

Pretty little beastie, with very nice detail on his face. The noise in the background doesn't add anything; I'd use noise reduction or blur it out of existence.

What a beautiful creature. Looks slightly noisy like you pushed the ISO a little too high, but often that's necessary in these situations.
