I really like the composition on this one, a perfect image to break the so-called rule of centering! The crotch of the tree puts the Leopard in a perfect position be complimented by the large tree limbs on the side and the one in the back to help make the Leopard stand out!

As John noted, nice framing of the leopard within the tree trunks. Love the kiss of dappled light on its nose and above its eye.

Beautifully done Jake! The Leopard is perfectly framed by the 'wishbone' tree and the pose, detail and dappled light all come together so well. So different from the usual draped over a tree branch sightings. Wonderful image. Well done!!

Perfect framing by the tree. Excellent eye contact and relaxed mouth. The bright sky areas are a bit distracting, but still a marvelous image!
Very well-done!
Sandy
