    A persian leopard.

    It's a bit dark because that helps hide the fence effect that obscured the leopards face. I couldn't get any closer to the fence to shoot between the wires unfortunately.

    Sure, the shutter speed is 250 and the aperture was around f8 i think.

    i used to have alot of problems resizing and retaining exif for flickr. i now use faststone image resizer and its absolutely brilliant. it resizes to what i want and adds the simple border. it can even add watermark if you so inclined.

    its very simple to use, fast as all buggery and its free.

    Is there a specific thing wrong with the sky so I can learn better if I do replace a sky again?
    Capturing the bright sky is one of the hardest things to do IMO, so don't beat yourself up over it. Usually I just try to capture it in-camera, and have the best luck using circular polarizers and/or graduated neutral density filters.

    But when I do play with replacing a sky, I really pay attention to what the sky looked like in the shot and try to mimic it as much as possible. I consider, what time of day was it, what direction was the light coming from, how cloudy was it? So in your shot, the lighting looks so even, I suspect it was nearly uniformly overcast? Is that right? If so, I'd try to find a shot of an overcast sky (maybe from another shot that day) and bring in just a little hint of it. Just a little detail. Because if you do too much, it's just going to look fake. HTH

    Along the lines of what Toriaj is doing-

    I took a pic during a bright part of the day. I found that it was dang near impossible to get both the sky and the terrain in the detail that I wanted, so what I did was just mount the camera to a tripod and take one shot for the sky, the other for the terrain just modifying the aperture and shutter speed- should be a pretty easy merge once I get around to it.
