I chose the roaring lion, mainly because I feel it is the best shot of them all.
It's clear and nicely framed.

Next choice would have been the penquin.

Lush green is a nice shot but is missing a point of interest something to draw the eye to.

The Bald eagle is a very good shot, the lighting however isn't as good as the lion.

That raptors face is fantastic, beautifully focused and it's a good shot, the body appears hunched so it upsets the balance of the photo, if you can edit to just a head shot that would be my first choice.

White tiger, although a beautiful animal he's lost in the undergrowth.

I like the lion and the penquin best too, lovely pics and the green, but chose the lion cos the penquin is cleaning its' bottom isn't it and might not always go down well at a dinner party   .

I love the green one - simply because whatever the mood, you can sort of "fall into it" and get away from where you currently are - if you know what I mean.

Sounds a perfect choice for rooms.

A old college photographer friend of mine went travelling and gave me a lovely picture of two penquins snuggling up.  Well I knew they were snuggling up, but sometimes they look like they are mating so ....

Can you get the white tiger popped in the Lush green one so they are combined, after all they are lovers of jungle, that would provide a focal point, or is that a bit of a technical problem, hey don't we have someone on the forum that does that sort of thing , they would know if it was possible.
 Me I'm a bit of a nerd I only like pictures of English countryside and animals on my walls, it's a sort of anti David Sheppard era, and that oriental Green woman print that hung on every ones wall in the 60's.
