Congratulations on your top 20 finish. This cat is a great asset. An oustanding and impressive image that seeks admiration from all viewers. The fact that this feline is straddled on both your shoulders and with eyes closed make the image more appealing.

I like this a lot, nice warm lighting. And I like that the background is neutral, really places the focus on the man and his buddy :)O

Warmth! Great use of portrait photography in a natural setting. The open eyes of the man only serve to accentuate the closed contented eyes of the cat. Lovely.

I love this. Most guys don't like cats. Extra points because "real men" do like cats :) Course it doesn't hurt that both the cat and the guy are gorgeous :) 10

Very good sharpness in this shot. But doesn't provoke anything special from within me as I have thousands of shots similar to this with my 2 cats. I think I have the most photo's of them out of anyone.
