From the Critique Club

Nice macro capture and the focus is good on the face of the cat. To me it appears the best focus area is on the nose and fades into softness from there. However I feel that you photograph is a little busy and cropped a little to tight. The exposure is ok even though the burned out sky is a little bit distracting. The colors are nice with the exception that I would of downed down the reds a little.

You picture has nice balance to it and the arrangements are good. The cat is a strong center of interest but with the few distracting elements mentioned above, it over powers the viewer.

Your subject does grab my attention and I find it to be appealing. But it doesn't show strong emotion or much creativity - IMO only the title ties it to the challenge and even then loosely. I feel your picture would of scored higher if related to the challenge a little clearer. I am not say you did not meet the challenge, just out of the box. We all suffer from that from time to time.

I hope you find this critique helpful. Keep up the good work and this is a good macro shot. Keep shooting and I wish you well in future challenges.

There seems to be a yellow cast on this picture, it is hard to discern the different colors, the problem is that I don't know how you could fix it, color levels maybe?

Nice cat portrait. Pretty eyes and only moderately distracting glare.

A pretty decent cat photo, but the "oops" is created by the title.

Nice macro here. Composition is nice and the focus on the eyes looks good. I think the WB and/or color saturation seem a little on the warm side?

Not a bad closeup, but for me, this seems to be a stretch to fit into the challenge itself.

Nice photo. I wouldn't have lopped off the top of the ears. I would like to "see" the "oops".
