Wow Dani!!
This really is a great shot. There is so much I love about it. The composition really is amazing. I love the positioning of the panda within the frame and the angles of the branches, drawing your eye into the main focus. The way you included the plants is also really nice. It's not often that plants in the foreground work, but this really adds to the natural feel of this shot.
One thing i've always admired about your work is the way you can make ever shot feel natural. There are far too many shots nowadays that feel artificial, and it's great to see nature in its truest form.
I also really like the colours of the animal. They are perfectly balanced without going overboard on the saturation and contrast the background really well. this too is pleasing to the eye, with nice bokeh and shapes, that you can still make out to be trees.
One improvement I might suggest is the small log on the far left. I keep holding my finger over it in an effort to see whether it would make a difference if it was removed but still haven't reached a conclusion :XD:
Overall a great shot that perfectly demonstrates the need for a good eye, and one of my personal favourites of your shots :aww:

Hmm, for some reason this will be hard. This is my first critique :w00t: and my first day with premie!
I'm obsessed with focus and quality of pictures, and this had 100% of both! I love how you got the camera to focus only on the red panda, and it blurs out the plant in front and in the backround.
I also love the cleanliness of it too. It feels kinda dreamy.
The lighting is great on this also.
LOL he's in a cute pose too! It's like he's saying, "peek-a-boo!"
OOOOooooo I love it so much! You did an awesome job taking a photo of this!
I can't think of anything else to say. XD

This is quite possibly my favorite animal on the planet, and you've captured its essence so beautifully.
