Colours are delighting. I personally love the sepia filter, instead the black and white. I think it's a perfect idea, because it gives to the image a more warm atmosphere (I like the red on the snout!).
I'd bet you didn't use the filter on the eyes, because they seem so green. And it enhances a lot the face of the animal, making it the main point of one's attention.
The light and brightness are right, because there's not too much difference between shadow areas and lightened ones; and it's so good (What I mean it's that there aren't some areas more enhanced than others, so you can focus your attention on the whole shot).
The only thing I don't see very clear it's the framing; it's a dinamic shot, but maybe the central point it's a little bit deviated. Anyway, it's about tastes.
The focusing it's alright. I like very much the big paws, head and muscles... it really gives the impression of the grandeur of these animals.

In conclusion, it's a very dinamic and good shot, that captures perfectly the grace of this feline.

(Also my apologies for my bad English).

This is a superb shot. You captured this beautiful cat at exactly the moment he looked straight at you. The focus on his eyes and face is phenomenal. His expression just means determination. The question is whether you intentionally shot it this way, with his shoulder and back cut off or whether you cropped it this way. Or perhaps, wasn't enough time to readjust the focal length to get his full body into the frame. Also, I would be curious how the original colors would look like, because I'm not so sure about the sepia. Overall, it's a wonderful photo.

He is such a beautiful boy! His head looks almost like the one of a leopards since it's slimmer than most of the jaguars. Beautiful shot as well!
