[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tallinn city zoo. Irbis (snow leopard). I was amazing with this deeply thinking look into nowhere as if he decides "to be or not to be" and took a shot. PS: background was a little blurred and the body was sharpen. Thank you for each of your critiques.

What a beautiful cat! He certainly does seem to be reflecting on something very deep... maybe he is planning his escape! The BG effect works well, TFS!! :)

Youre title perfectly emulates the atmosphere, it is such a unusually melancholic pose for a ferocious predator but nevertheless true... We all have a soft side at one point. Technically a little ovesharpened on the leopards coat and the tree's needles. But thats just slightly.

Hi Denis, what a cute look on this ferocious animals face! As you said, a deep thoughtful look. The photos looks a little too green, but the composition and details are very good. Thank you for showing.

fantastic shot...and soooooo...human
you did a good job with this..sharp where it ought to be and the rest blown out..

hi denis
loved the calm and quite expression on the face of this beast..
but the greenish tone that u have applied is diminishing the off white color of the body of this snow leopard
i wd like to see this pic totally unprocessed..
a beautiful capture!!

I agree it is a lovely cat. You did get the expression very well. But also there is a heavy green cast in the photo. I did a workshop to try to correct this. I hope it helps.
