    I was looking at your specs and your shutter speed says 1/30. I don't know if you're running IS, VR or something equivalent but handheld with a shutter that slow I think that's why your image is a tad soft. Personally 1/30 shutter speed is beyond my personal tolerance when it comes to hand held shots.

    I like the feel on the processing of your shot though.

    to me it just look like a snapshot with basic PP. I know working with animals is difficult but maybe schedule a photo shoot with him if you want to. :)

    oh yeah and constant light is better when you are with animals compared to flash.

    I made an edit that gets rid of some of the softness throughout the eyes and snout. I can post it if you want, but your profile says no edits.

    i really like this shot. some of it is a little soft and as said previous, probably due to hand held at the speed but the eyes are sharp and overall i think it's lovely.

    I actually did two. One a little stronger than the other. Im pretty sure all I did was lay an unsharp mask on the original photo with Nikon Capture NX2 software.
