This was a photo of luck. Was trying to photograph Corri (the orange tabby) but she would not open her eyes. Kobba (the grey tabby) happened to jump on the couch and walk up to Corri. Was using a manual focus lens wide open (so narrow DoF), did not have time to reposition and refocus. Took the shot, hoping for a 2nd photo but Corri turned and Kobba jumped back. Would have loved different framing with more of Kobba's head in the photo.

The framing is just perfect the way it is! (And I see Johanna already told you the same - if we both think that, then it is, indeed, perfect!)

Absolutely not a single whisker more is needed of the gray kitty. The images is perfect as is.

This is really cute. the white and orange tabby looks so peaceful! I would like to see a bit more of the cat coming in from the left. Maybe up to eye level would be good? Just seems like it's cropped wrong for me.
