my dogs think cat earwax is caviar. my cats could take it or leave it, from any species - q-tips however are fun to bat around. maybe your cat is a dat... or a cog. in any case, upside down was definitely the way to go!

Congrats on the HM for your first entry, Elena! My fave of the challenge because it's so unusual :-)

On the earwax thing... not so much :-)

I feel very honored to be welcomed so warmly in this terrific community!
Very inspirational!
Was afraid that going for "cute" would not really work here. So my first submission was much more somber:

Re-reading the rules though realized that my regular way of converting files in Lightroom and not saving the originals would not work. Too late.
Had to grab the camera again and chase the cat to his full surrender.
Thank you all for your generous voting and nice comments! Truly helpful. 'm afraid though that buzz in my head from all the ideas will not let my family sleep well...
P.S. I know some people find it gross, but the favorite treat for my cat is not the cheezburger, but ...earwax. Sorry. If you haven't tried it with you cat - do it, you might be surprised. :-)

Love the choice of black & white!

This is so cute. This pose that you got from your cat must have been one of those 'still' moments our cats have. I absolutely LOVE that you went B&W as well!

Too cool! What a great look. Excellent choice of depth of field, too.

Awwwwwwwwwwww. Just love it. He's so relaxed and trusting. Perfect shallow dof.

LOL. Perfect title. Wonderful capture. I haven't voted yet and was just taking a quick peek at the thumbnails and this just jumped out at me. Your cat has a future in Hallmark card covers!!! :-) Very well seen and captured. Could have a new ribbon to show for it.

Okay ... after all of the accolades I do have one nitpik ... just a touch more contrast (without blowing the highlights) may be something to consider.
