I was trying shots of bubbles on a black background, when my daughter noticed our cat was very interested. Moved the tripod a bit and she blew more bubbles but towards the cat. Shot alot of frames until the model lost interest! I really wanted more bubbles in the shot but this one with one solitare bubble was by far the most captivating.

As an animal photographer (though non-studio), I really appreciate how well done this is, super stock photo candidate. Congrats on the top ten!

This shot could have made an interesting "greeting card" submission as well. Great color and contrast. Love the cat's expression (lol) -- 8 --

It's always fun to sit around and watch your cat interact with bubbles. Nice picture.

That cat is cross-eyed! Love it.

Cute ... and well shot. Nice to see a clean sahrp image for a change
09/23/2005 10:05:02 PM
Is this a winning image or what. You have my undisputed 10 along with my full respect. The composition rocks. Good luck!
09/23/2005 05:13:52 PM
This is an excellent shot! I love everything about it! I love the way the kittie's eyes cross looking at it! LOVE the beautiful cat! What a gorgeous color... Red or hot cream colored? Is the cat a Maine Coon? I say 10!!!
09/23/2005 04:12:13 PM

09/23/2005 12:35:15 PM

cute! 8

Absolutely the cutest bubble shot so far. Love the expression on the cat's face. I truly hope this places in the top ten.
09/23/2005 08:03:30 AM
8 - Nice. Good perspective, just wish it were a little more angled perhaps, not sure, to get the 'mane' in. A bit more definition on the bubble too would have made this a better shot in my opinion. Nice colors, just wish the bubble showed more 'spectrum colors'.
09/22/2005 11:42:30 PM
Oh how funny! Truly wonderful...love it! Now I must go get some bubbles and give this a try with my cats...this is a definite favorite.
09/22/2005 11:16:33 PM
Cute shot. Nice technical quality.
09/21/2005 11:15:35 PM
OH MY GAWD! I nearly fell out of my chair with laughter when I saw this. How absolutely fabulous. I really hope you win a ribbon with this one! 10, 10 and 10
09/21/2005 11:14:09 PM
hahaha. I like how the cat looks lost and confused.
09/21/2005 10:48:13 PM

I love the kitty's expression. Great contrast and the bubble couldn't be in a more perfect place. The angle is a tad awkward, but I really like it. The whiskers with the black background are a stand out.
09/21/2005 08:28:59 PM
Ha! Fantastic image. I LOVE the facial expression the cat has, almost cross-eyed and clearly mesmerized. The focus is fantastic, lighting is wonderful, not too harsh and not so soft that you lose the details of the fur or its softness. Nice use of black background to pump up the cinnamony color of the cat's fur. I think this could be perfect for a calendar or even a greeting card! Very well done (don't let anyone complain about having cats in your image get to you), the expression is priceless. I gave a 7.
09/21/2005 05:15:40 PM
I think this is absolutely adorable.
09/21/2005 02:15:59 PM
I can imagine how hard it was to get this shot. Great expression and title.

Knowing cats' behaviour, I suspect it took a while to take this shot, mut the result is fantastic.
09/21/2005 11:45:40 AM
Its the cat's meow. Very nice shot! Good luck
09/21/2005 10:53:09 AM
Fabulous! The composition and colors are great, but the expression on the cat's face is priceless.
09/21/2005 09:19:21 AM
The composition is good with a tight focus on the cat studying the bubble. Love how the cat's eyes are focused intently on the bubble. The black background draws the eyes attention directly to the cat and the bubble.
