An excellent image. Perfect exposure, focus and great detail. The eye contact between the two holds the viewer's attention nicely. My one nit is the hair in the young lady's face, but manipulating it out might cause more problems than leaving it in.

Nice expression on the cat, although I'm ot sure it matches the title.

Ahh, with my second comment a 'two cats' photo. Yes, for me real two beautiful, cute and nice kitten. The motive itself a 'heart-breaker' with those sweet two objects. But the image quality with the turn towards a B/W one rocks, too. Density and contrast are very pleasing for a digital converted B/W. Sharpness good with showing nice details in the fur. DOF a bit narrow, especially on the girl's eye, but with keeping in mind the already low shutter speed of 1/80, better shoot with it, than miss the whole emotive moment. Ah, yes, forgot the crop - a real helpful narrow one here! So it's a real winner, at least a pure 'heart-winner'! Greets!

þetta er alvöru LjósNyndun.... Langbesta myndin að mínu mati,, browsaði hratt yfir myndirnar og kaus ekki neina þvi mér fannst þetta vera margt frekar slappt. Þessi var sú sem bar af að mínu mati afþeim sem ég gjóaði augun í. Til lukku með bláan

There is one long hair on the person's face by the eye - distracting.

one of my ribbon picks -- great connection and emotion
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2004 11:02:01 PM
I see heida's forehead!

The focus is great because it shows the cats tiny whiskers- Those are the best part of the picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2004 09:27:34 PM
Sweet, sweet, sweet. What an expression and look at those feeler whiskers. 7

12/28/2004 06:55:05 PM
I love this one! Great composition! You can feel the smile on both the kitten and the girl! I can see a poster of this one in a Vet's office, or on a calendar :)

It may be that I'm a sucker for kittens, but I like the composition in this one. Don't know if it's intended or not, but I love the way the eyelashes complement the kitten's whiskers.

Very nice crop. I'm not a cat person, but I can appreciate cuteness when I see it. I really like this!

I LOVE this picture, I;m bumping it as it's so much more original than most here. Fantastic shot and focus, although the crop is a little tight on the womans face. Love it, great use of black and white too.
