I see that you pay attention to composition very carefully, with the animal in the middle ground and at its most focused within the piece whereas the foreground and back ground are out of focus. Which makes the animal the vocal point easily. However, being that this majestic animal seems small compared to the background; you should have brought the background a little more into focus, this will alleviate confusion yet keep that painterly quality you have going. That is the better option because I like the fuzzy foreground. Or crop out some of the background it seems somewhat unnecessary. But you still will keep that rule of thirds even though you do crop out some of the background. You pay attention to your shutter speed well. Very nice work!
What do you think?

I love this picture. It captures the wild ferocity yet majestic beauty of a wild feline. I also like how the background is out of focus drawing your eye to the feline. Love this piece.

Excellent photograph!

Excellent use of highlights and shadows. The lighting directly on the face of the feline really brings the focus there. Sharpness and clarity differences really help with the focus as well. You're doing an amazing job!

This image is visually stunning, has great composition, has the right amount balance, love the lighting of this shot, the focal point is clear and crisp and Overall gives the feeling of quite curiosity! What i love the most about this image is how it truly captures the essence of this animal, how there is so much life and vitality in it's eyes, how this animal. Not to mention i am in love with exotic cats (big or small i love them all), I just adore everything about this lovely artwork and i hope to see more splendid creations such as this!!!

Beautiful, very well captured &the lighting adds a lovely effect to this image. The eyes are outstanding, &shows emotion. I love this very much. His face is sad, or it might seem that way, whatever he's looking at sure is getting his attention pretty well.

Beautiful capture. This kind of beauty....not everyone gets the chance to see. You defiantly done an amazing job. Very much in focus on the animal and the surroundings not so much. Making it all less of a distraction and the animal the focus. Keep it up :)

I believe it's an ocelot.

After a quick Google search of the Latin name in the description, it is indeed an ocelot.
