Really!!! This is what I'm competing with, I'm doomed. Very nice photo, color great, subject is amazing, and focus is perfect. Lighting is maybe a little dark, and the rock in the left lower corner is distracting.

You have some nice detail here in this shot. I can see some fine details in the fur itself. And look at those teeth, yikes! A good shot but there are areas that could make it a better shot. The eyes are always a strong point - you create visual interest when you can establish eye contact. We don't have that here and that hook is lost. However you could have played up the strength you have captured in the shot - that great wide toothy yawn/roar. Cropping can make or break a composition. I think that if you had cropped that rock that is in the bottom left of the scene out it would help strengthen the photo. I would also suggest cropping out 15% of the left side. The reason: cropping such that the body of the leopard is in the left bottom corner gives the illusion that he/she is emerging from that corner. That emerging then strengthens that stretch, the great toothy roar. And it also brings the viewer closer to your main subject by cropping out distracting elements.
