Expected a higher placing for this. It was one of my favorite because it was so unique. People either love cats or hate them and I think some don't even give cat photos a second look. Still a nice finish in a tough challenge and what a great shot to hang on your wall.

Is that a giant glass or a tiny cat?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

interesting shot. Nice job isolating the glass on the white background. The scale is really thrown into question with the cat in the glass. Nice job!

12/07/2005 06:39:49 PM
That must be one BIG glass. Creative. I like that.

hehehe... nice idea. Very nice composition.

Most clever entry for sure, super job, well done, bumping up.

Cleaver Idea, the lighting is very nice. The cats color even helps outline the stem.

Great shot! Congrats! Definitely one of my favourites!

Made me laugh - good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Perhaps just a tad over exposed. I'd prefer if the stem of the glass didn't disappear as much as it does. Great picture though. 8

This is just great. Is that a very big glass or a very small cat?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2005 10:14:08 AM
Love the title and the simple black and white. Composition is great. How did you get the cat to cooperate?? Good Luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2005 10:36:53 PM
How in the heck did you get the cat to stay in there? The black and white are great with the hint of color from the eyes. Good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2005 06:42:03 PM
Wow, very nice, good imagination.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2005 04:29:48 PM
Your cat doesnt exactly look happy about his place but its a really great shot. It could have been maybe a bit sharper on the glass, not so whited out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2005 11:12:35 AM
Awwww, kitty! That looks like one of mine and he would do the same thing! LOVE THIS! Great comp and what a darling subject!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2005 10:18:04 AM
Is the glass really huge or the cat really small, whatever it is, great composition ! It feels good to see something you vote high to finish up high :)

Good Luck!

Cute, gives me an idea for a setup for my 3xblack feline crew
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This image makes me giggle. I'm hoping its a large glass? Maybe a miniature cat? Beautiful cat BTW. Seems a tad oversharpened but my monitor seems to make 640ppi shots do that. Like the composition, excellent POV. 9 - good luck in the challenge!

Stunning shot. 9. (and where on earth do you get a glass/cat that size?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2005 05:45:21 AM
I can already feel the hairs stuck between my teeth. Good shot!

12/02/2005 11:22:05 PM
An image that lingers. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2005 07:19:44 PM
Either that is one small cat or one big glass. My kind of martinin!

Wonderfully humourous. Nice clean shot Hope to see it near the top

Most likely stired not shaken. Great crop, love the cat's look/eyes, lighting a touch to much on bottom of stem for my taste. Good luck on this feline martini....

What a fantastic set-up! And your model rewarded you with a perfect I-can't-believe-you're-doing-this-to-me look. Superp photo - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 06:56:23 AM
LOL! How in the world did you set this up??? Love that you eliminated all shadowing and the feline has real attitude. I would too if someone stuck me in a martini glass. Love it! - 10

This is exceptionally executed. WOW 9

Lol! This is awesome! Love the long stemmed glass and even the cat's expression is perfect...and we all know how they love to cooperate! ;)
