My daughters sassy cat, Snowball(s). She wasn't wanting to stay on the white matte board, and was getting a little irritated that I kept putting her back. . . thus the look.

Looking at this picture of Snowball makes me sad now. She went missing on Saturday. We looked everywhere, checked the animal control shelter, started to make posters, and all that stuff. She showed up this evening looking like something or someone attacked her. Her poor face is all swollen and it looks like whatever it was tried to scratch her eyes out. She's hurting and it makes me very sad. I don't know what the vet can really do, other than maybe give her something for pain and an antibiotic. I've never had to deal with a hurt animal like this before....But we are very happy to know she is alive and back home, and that she will recover fine, thank goodness.
Anyways, just thought I would share Snowball's story.

I'm not really very sure what to make of that comment? *shrug*
Again tho, Thank You all for the comments and the praise!! It is really appreciated!

I know some people will vote this low because of the blown out highlights, but I think it works well in this picture. Nicely done.

Great idea and followthrough. Certainly has light on white. Some people may not care for the washed out eye, a bit more green would have really improved this image. However overall I really like the results you achieved. Good work

Beautifully done! Love the composition!

Great image, but.....the topic was a mostly light subject against a whit background, and your picture appears to be all cat, but.....your true subject is the cat's face against the white background of the cat's body. I'm so confused......

Tighter crop would of been better for this picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2005 08:16:56 AM
my tiffany used to collect crud in the corner of her eye like that without ever bein aware of it. she was white too. don't you wish you'd cleaned it now? love the shot otherwise!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2005 02:26:50 PM
my taste is not having part of the cat blown out, but love the close up of the face!! did you try to crop showing JUST the face, cropping off all the extra white? my opinion, I know LOL, but to me looks GREAT that way!

looks a bit too blown out may be, but still i liked it, nice detail on the nose and mouth.. meets this challenge well. 7.

I like this very much without the eye booger. Maybe a tad too "uncontrasted," but the idea is nicely executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2005 09:59:39 AM
Well done, I would probably have cleaned the muck out of the cats eye .. or maybe you tried that ... so hard to tell ...
