    They are all pretty centered as for competition. Otherwise, they look fine.

    I agree with #2 being the best, but you should crop it a bit. I really like that picture.

    I like propably #2 the best. Although it could be composed a little better. But it has great depth of field! The same thing can be said about the last pic and i like the shallow leaves on the right.

    If Alex here hadn't said it before me already, I'd now have said the very same. Their centred composition is what struck me at very first sight for each and every photo presented here. And yes, the photos WOULD have been better, had you focused on the eye of each animal first, but then recomposed while keeping the shutter half-pushed, to only then shoot.
