Fantastic! For someone who takes thousands of pictures of Red Pandas, I can say this piece is simply amazing. The composition is perfect and the Red Panda's pose is top notch. The background colors really complement the subject as well. It's not easy to get photos such as this. The whole piece feels very relaxing and powerful at the same time to the point where you can really sense what the animal is thinking and feeling. Overall, a splendid piece and I hope my critique inspires others to look past just a cute animal picture and see the detail and depth of photos like this.

This is so lovely...
One of my favorite animals captures in such a lovely way. Vice versa it can look to be depressing depending on what context you use. Say, its bamboo home is destroyed.

... or I'm thinking WAY too into this.

The colour and depth of this photograph is phenomenal. This portrait makes me think of victorian-era portraits in the fact that the subject is engaged elsewhere allowing you not only to capture their features but their nuances as well. Wistful is the perfect title for this. Simply stunning. Another one for the faves :)

Aww what a wonderful capture :love: beautiful detail on the face fur, and the eyes and nose! I feel I can touch it. It seems sad, gives an urge to hug it :| it would probably bite and scratch like hell though xD
