Superb composition, my favs are full :-(((
No nit.
Very Well done.

A lean and hungry look on its face, indeed - I wouldn't like to meet one of these while I was knee deep in snow. Technically, I thought it might have been a little improved by moving the POV so that the leopard's head was more to the left, and more of its body visible,

A gorgeous photo, Alan. Perfectly composed, great lighting and excellent contrast.

Wow, Alan. This one is stunning. What an expression. You captured his essence, with sharp details and in perfect lighting. I love that retracted neck and that crouched back... but mostly I love those eyes. Congratulations and TFS. : )
