Hello from the Critique Club!

Hello crystipark!

What a pretty cat you have! I love it. My cat Tony looks exactly like your cat :) The picture is very intensely focused on the eyes, because they are so big and bright. Personally I like that, and I can see the pale yellowy colour you were aiming for with this picture. Unfortunately, it doesn't coincide with what most people would consider a colourful picture. Personally, I would look and try to find what you wanted to do with the photo, and vote that way. Moving on from that point, let's see what you could do better with your picture, ok?
I like the focus. it's clear and you can see all the hairs nicely, the DOF is fairly shallow which is ok; you got the parts you were aiming for :) The lighting is uneven, which doesn't help you, it brings different highlights, and also makes some bits of the picture over exposed, and some other parts of the picture under exposed. For instance the right eye is completely over exposed, and the black on top of the head is under exposed, and you can't see the details properly in either.
I think the other you need to aim for is to make the picture the maximum size allowed here. that will automatically raise the votes you get by a point or so.
I see a lot of potential,and hope you will enter more challenges :) good luck!

I'm disappointed that the eyes aren't a deep color.

black being the absense of all color means that color is not dominant in this photo, black is... the exposure is so bright the eyes are almost white

Fantastic macro! The color of the eyes contrast in so well with the black fur, great!

I don't feel this meets the theme of the challenge but it is a nice picture.

I like the light and dark contrast.

If the cat's eyes were yellow.... but how is color the central theme of this picture?

Bubba boo looks nice, and the eyes are kinda cool. The image suffers a bit from lack of color though in my opinion. Yellow eyes?

Wow those eyes! I wonder if you could intensify the yellow channel to bring out the color a little more (but only because this is the color challenge). The focus seems to be sharpest on the nose and not so much on the eyes. I have found that the animal pictures that I like the best have the eyes in very sharp focus. This picture might benefit from using a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field. I think the composition is very good here, I really like the position and shape of the eyes. I gave it a 6.
