The blurred background with the sharp focus on the animal creates a great contrast. I love the sharpness of the fave but the less sharpness on the body that gives it a fluffy appearance. The photograph gives off a strong presence and the two lights in the background although there are not very distracting, they bring the attention back to the subject. The way the lights hits the whiskers and top of his head is a very nice touch.
His right eye has a tinge of an awkward green in comparison to the left. I'm not sure if it occurred post production. Along with the shadowed fur underneath the face.
