I must say, this is probably one of the most appealing feline shots I've ever seen! It is hard to capture an emotion from an animal, but in this case it is clear which kind of emotion it is expressing. The shine of the eyes is so captivating, and the glow and lighting in the fur is beautifully accentuated on the top and face edges. The colour balance is also good, as the focus is more in the warm tones on the cub, while the pastel like colours in the blankets are still nice but not too distracting of the focal point. The focus is very good and the animal looks presentable with no distracting flaws. The fleece blankets display an extra touch of softness and innocence. Overall a beautiful composition!!

5 stars for impact, but I suppose it's because I love baby cheetahs so much :love:
I like the way this photo is composed, I like how it is not centered and I love the expression you have caught on the cubs face. I must also say congrats on the clear shot since I see it was 1/25 seconds. Was it very dark? I see the ISO was 1600 which has caused just a tiny bit of noise in the photo but nothing major at least. If possible try to get is a bit lower :)
But other than that it's a fantastic photo. Well done :D
