I took this shoot at a zoo in Croatia in town Zagreb. They have a very beautyfull zoo park. This big cat comed very close to the glass, but I didn't have much time. So I just set my camera to continuous shooting and start taking pictures.

I wish to thank you all for your comments and suggestions for picture improval.

Great image, there is not much that you need to do to improve this Damjan.

Nice composition

I really like the composition of this shot and the sharpness of the face. You might try experimenting with using an image editor like photoshop to brighten the eyes up a bit. The blurring you used looks OK in most of the image, but it is very pronounced as being "unreal" on the cat's spots in the lower right corner of the image. That jumped out at me immediately and was very distracting to the overall image.

Thank' s for the comment. But I'm one of those that don't like post processing with software. Or should I say as little as possible. In this photo this was just a little crop and some blur with picassa.

Because I think if you have enough time and you know photoshop or something similar you can do anything with photography even if you don't know anything about the camera or behind the camera.
