Curiosity, indeed. I like how you centred the red panda in the middle of the shot with the two branches (or trunks?) of the tree on either side of him. I feel you've succeeded in focusing the picture on him using this technique; not only that, but I like how the background is blurred so that you know his face is the focal point. Very cute picture.
Great shot! Love the focus, and the composition. There's a lot of great detail in this. I can see every whisker (which says that the lighting is proper, too)!
I feel like while the focus is great on the subject (specifically on its face), the whole body gets the short stick (for lack of a better term ). There seems to be a circle of focus surrounding the eyes, nose, and chin, but we can't see other features clearly, like its ears - for example. They're a bit blurry, and slightly out-of-focus too. (I can't tell if they were moving while this photo was taken - that would explain it ) The area surrounding the panda seems to be a little distracting if you hover on the image too long. When you first look at this photo, you automatically see the panda and are amazed at the clarity, and the cuteness. But the more I stare at this photo, the more I realize the background also "sticks" out (no pun intended ) There's a branch in the way on the right, that is - strangely - focused, unlike the rest of the background. There's also a structure (more of a tree, I think), that - while it gives the shot a more natural look - takes a tiny bit away from the panda. Maybe a very slightly different angle, one that captures the entire creature and less of the tree behind it, would be more pleasing to the eye.
Amazing shot! (And if it got into iLovePhotographyClub, I know that they must have loved it too - and that says something )
