Snow Leopard by KrisVlad Snow Leopard by KrisVlad
The Cincinnati Zoo (one of the best) has a new kitty exhibit. I couldn't get a good shot of the Tiger or the Puma, but Snow Leopard was literally right next to the glass.

I thought I'd hate the blue-ish glare, but I actually liked how it turned out after I burned selected areas. It makes a niiice wallpaper if you're a Mac owner. :)

I like your picture, especially the exposure which is a bit "under".
However, I think u should re-consider as to how u frame and compose your object especially since it's a close up shot. The eyes are a too high (in the case if u want to focus on the eyes). Or, Do u want to give a balanced proportion to the face? (if that so, I think portrait frame will do better.

Btw, for a close up face on position I think it will be better if u position it in the center (horizontally). center doesn't always mean dead composition
What do you think?

This is so gorgeous! There's so much detail, and it looks like he's focusing intently on either killing me or showing a lot of interest in whatever he's glaring at like that. I'm definitely in love with your camera for getting such a well focused shot like this at zoo~

I like the blue glare a lot in this, it makes his/her eyes pop out a lot and really harmonizes with the background with out becoming monochrome or the same hues. Its very nice for a huge wallpaper in someone's living room or bedroom! A lot of people would agree that it's very beautiful and eye capturing. Nice work!
