Brutal and raw. A bit underexposed, but I'm guessing you don't want to blow out the white on the mouse. The detail is superb. Great shot.

Wow, it is a great capture - and raw as Kelvin mentions. There's no mercy in those bird's eyes. Fantastic photo.

A powerful image. I'm not sure about the blur effect which I find unnatural-looking, but overall, truly stunning and as other have had said, intense.

Dream shot. Well framed and brutal. The albino rodent makes me wonder: Did you catch this at a zoo?
