Wow, Will! Wow! Another great shot. I've been staring at it for a while now, looking for something to critique, but I guess this changed from a critique to a praise, haha. I absolutely love it! The details like the whiskers and the little 'fingers' are amazing. The little snowflakes on its head, the ears, the depth of field, the framing, the angle.. I really love how this photo doesn't need anything else in it either, no distractions, no extras. It's just perfect exactly the way it is. Even the watermark doesn't distract me at all, but that could be because the gray is very well chosen.
Keep 'em coming, love seeing your progress!
PS. I don't think I ever gave 5 stars for vision, originality, technique and impact, but then again photographs hardly ever impress me this much.
