Lighting came from a large window to the right. They actually posed for me for quite a while. They had been playing together all morning and were like two best pals mugging it up!

I had to play around with the crop/border/saturation a little. Hope you don't mind.

Very nice catwork, didn't expect this to get such a low rating. Your cats are wonderful subjects.

I was surprised also this didn't place higher. It has such claity and the expressions are priceless. I stated on another cat shot that I think people either love or hate cats and think it does effect how people score them.

I am amazed at how low the placement was. I had this for top 10. Sure, it wasn't a landscape, but that's part of the reason I loved it. Really great capture in my opinion.

It must have been tough to get two cats both looking at the camera. Of course, now I notice that one of them isn't quite looking in the same direction as the other, which is kind of weird.

Great cat portrait, well done.

The two complement each other nicely. Add a little USM, and this would make a nice calendar photo for cat lovers. (It isn't very compelling for those who don't love cats, but then, it doesn't have to be!)

Nice nice nice! What an excellent portrait you have accomplished here! I know photographing cats is not an easy task at all, such the stubborn little "people" they are, you should be very proud of this image, absolutely wonderful...very well done.

Ohhhh. What a pose. Good luck on this feline beauty.

Not bad. I can only imagine how difficult it was to get them to cooperate... Focus seems decent on the eyes, but a little too soft on the noses, so a larger DOF might be in order. Some sharpening might help a little though. All in all, there is little to complain about, but among the rest of the photos it really doesn't stand out. A more interesting (or more contrasting), yet not distracting background might help.

Back to bump this to a 10. What perfect models you have :) Everything about the photo is spot on. Grats.

the whites of the cat on the left seem to blend into the B/G too much for me. Great pin-sharp eyes.

Wow I am really impressed you got these two cats to sit side by side and both look at the camera! The lighting, colour ,everything is great you should consider a career in pet photography!

6 - Nice, fairly good color control, especially with the white on white. Criticism; would like to have seen a uniform colored background, or else a more 'dappled'/'even' one; seems it goes from pink-white to blue-white from left to right. I think if the background was perhaps darker, a little sharper focus, especially on the eyes (but you may have been going for a 'soft look'), would have made this better in my opinion. The cat on the left seems like he is being 'edged' out a little by the fluffier one, so perhaps a different angle or even a rotation, not sure. edit:typo

That is wonderful!!! Their duplicate eyes are mesmerizing. Just a stunning portrait. All I can say is wow and 10

Gorgeous! I love how the one on the left has some of the same colour. Great job to get them both so close together and attentive as well. I love cat shots.
