How hard is it to bring the cat to the milk? Actually, kind of hard! Of course with 5 lights surrounding the milk, I wouldn't blame him. Of course, with patience and awesome cats, you eventually get a great pic.

would have liked this shot from a different angle, maybe not showing the carpet. the lighting is a little bland. but you captured the cat's expression wonderfully.

don't tip over little kitty...you never know what they put in that milk martini!

Cool idead but i am distracted by the cat when I looka t the photo.

A bit more light would have helped; the milk look almost grey. Otherwise, that a good composition.

Probably needs more contrast. If the whites stood out more on the milk and the beautiful cat I'd score it higher. great compa nd capture.

Great capture! Love the cat's expression

Hey his tounge matches the curtain! Cute photo!

The cat's expression is priceless -- great capture. The lighting seems a bit dim, adn the color balance is slightly off, though.

Never seen a cat so ":P" before. How come the milk doesn't look white at all? Too bad the glass is cropped from bottom and the cat isn't right on focus. Still, there's so much good I'll give it a 6. Some improvements and it could be a 9 easy. Good job!

Cute idea and beautiful kitty. Things that would make it better to me: Better lighting, a different floor and background. A crop that shows more of the cat and the base of the glass, and less of the top and right.

the lighting is a little dim and the cat a little fuzzy. cool tongue action though
08/26/2005 07:58:26 PM
Cute cat, it wouldn't hurt to be a little bit more bright.
08/25/2005 08:50:44 PM
good idea but dont like the tounge
08/25/2005 08:14:49 PM
i like the pic put i think that the colors look a little off....if possibly the milk should have been brighter
08/25/2005 05:58:36 PM
Love everything about this shot except I find it too dark. A tad of tweaking and clarity would give it moreb "bang".

Nice picture except it is a little dark.
08/25/2005 03:27:04 PM
Nice subject, the lighting and composition could be alot better. Maybe a close crop of just the top edge of the martini and the cat's face would look more professional.

I like how the tongue matches the color in the curtain. The dribble of milk left on his face adds character. Cute.

This photo made me smile! Nice capture of the tongue. I'm not too fond of the backdrop though.
08/24/2005 08:32:26 PM
Tee hee. Good capture, especially with the cat's tongue out. A bit more brightness or contrast and I would have scored this higher.

colours a bit dull but nice photo

Great pic! The milk martini idea is so original and creative, which is what I love about it. I love it! ;)

Focus and lighting could have been better
08/24/2005 04:09:39 PM
cute picture. the tongue realy makes the picture :D
08/24/2005 05:50:04 AM
Nice idea, a little dark though.
08/24/2005 02:17:25 AM
Focus is off and needs better lighting
08/24/2005 12:53:27 AM
I'd single desat the white and remove the yellow tones. I'd love to see this against a black background - maybe convert to black and white altogether. I'd also straighten it a tad - the martini glass is tilted in the shot.

good idea with lots of potential... i think you should have tried using a desk lamp for additinal close up lighting, then used the curtain or red cloth as a backdrop and shot sort of a side profile with the cat and the glass so the floor isnt in the shot.

too yellow due to low light...otherwise fabulous
