~The-cake-is-a-spy has done a lovely pencil drawing of this photo -- see: [link]

I wasn't originally going to post this, but TCIAS's drawing has... I guess... inspired me to go back and clean this image up to the point where I'd be happy to share it with the world. (Thanks, man)

This is one of the Wildlife Heritage Foundation's North Chinese leopards, gazing up at the sky. I think this is Ta'iri, though I'm not absolutely certain.

Once again, the circular polariser was used to help cut through the reflection from the glass. I've had to fix the exposure in post-proc (and boost the contrast a little to rectify the washed-out colours you get from doing that). As always, I've kept this kind of modification to a minimum. This image hasn't been anywhere near Photoshop or any other image editing app, it's straight out of AfterShot.

Canon EOS 7D, EF24-105f4 at 88mm with Jessops circular polariser, f4.5 1/160sec aperture priority, ISO1600 (A-ISO).

Post-processing: AfterShot Pro, custom WB, +0.7EV, Noise Ninja NR with 7.22 strength and 0% smoothing, sharpen +100, blackpoint +3.92, contrast +25.
