Those eyes are amazing! That is so darn cute how he is peeking around whatever that is, and the detail is wonderful!

My Goodness - what beautiful eyes!

Are they really that amazing colour? What breed is the cat?

I really appreciate the balance of brightness, with the background streak of light a bit like a spotlight falling accross the pix. Without it, it would be a more ordinary shot. With it, it is a bit like your cat is peeking from behind the curtains sizing up the audience before coming out on to stage and giving a show!

Very nicely done - makes me want to do something adventurous with photographing my moggy (long haired tabby, 'Fluffy'- there's a cliche for you)

Congratulations on being such a good photographer - I am inspired!

It's amazing the use of light to shine the eyes without getting that awfull "red-eye" in cats. Congrats!

One of my faves, i hope it ribbons. I love the lighting on the face and how it brings out the color in the eyes. Definitely looks like a peek around the corner. Good luck!

Great shot. His look is that of a curious cat. Lovely eyes and good use of the empty space on the right. bumped to 9

8 - Nice focal point, I like the colors (especially to bring out his blue eyes). Good composition. The light reflected off the leather fabric in the background creates nice lines leading to the eyes and whiskers. My only suggestion is the title, and only because of the Challenge (otherwise it sure looks like a refuge), but of course, your call.

Nice and sharp, great lighting, great comp, the background adds and is not distracting. And the kitty is cute, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2008 09:45:26 PM
The colors from the rug and background play off the eyes very nicely

Beautiful shot! I really like the colors...and this is interesting and intriguing. I see a lot of entries that don't seem to get the nature of this challenge. This say's Peek-A-Boo to me! And I know for a fact, that cats LOVE to play peek-a-boo!

Nice shot!

One of the best of the challenge. My only critique would be the light behind the cat is tad bit distracting. Hope you do well.
