    Good shot, buddy, I really like the conversion work. As a lifelong lover of cats, I'm fairly shocked that I didn't know of this one. I'll have to fire up the internet search.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Thanks Tom, These are jaguars in the Brazilian Pantanal. Incredible ecosystem.

    Excellent image! Just looking at your image I swear that if I were to touch it, I would feel the texture of the cat's fur. Wonderfully done and presented!

    Well done, Cristóbal.

    Great textures in the conversion.

    Thanks guys. The jaguar had been swimming in the river just before the shot. This in the Encontro das Águas state park in the Pantanal. Here is a link to google maps

    For me bg is way too bright and way too busy. Subject is almost lost. Maybe that was the intention? if not, I would explore super tight crop and try to calm down leftover bg. Cheers Cristobal!

    Good work Cristobal

    The contrast screams... (also beautiful cat.. :) )

    Thanks Taz, I agree. It is already a tight crop with reduced clarity in the bg. I will attempt some further toning down.

    How about this Taz, That is as much as I could smooth the background.

    Wow man I didn't think it would improve that much! The kitty is practically jumping out of my screen now.....bg most certainly has retreated and that is wonderful!
