To great!!! The colored version is neat... but this is way too awesome. Something about that dark sky, the shadows, the composition... And in my opinion that cat adds the perfect touch. He adds this little quirk to the photo. Maybe I'm just biased, because I love my own cat so much, for her quirkiness, but still. :) Fabulous shot. I love it.

I´m not surprised this one did well, it is very artistic and I like it better in b&w

Thank you everyone for your comments! And votes, so happy to see a new entry on my profile page. I'm overwhelmed really, boosted confidence quite a bit. For those who wanted to see the color version which lost out for the b/w entry, here goes:

Man I hate cats but the framing/composition on this is too nice to mark you down for it. Well done.

great composition, imagery, and exosure.

Marvellous. A thorough underatnding of the requirements of the crop, great detail, great light. The tiniest piece of tail showing ... I think I would have cloned that out, it just adds a slight element of complexity to a wonderfully graphic image.

Really nice B & W...I love the cat and the textures of the wall it is perched upon...very well done.

Great composition. Great use of texture in the wall and clouds in the sky. i can't say enough about the cat - this alone makes the composition really stand out. Excellent work!

Great shot! Hope it does well. Reminds me of the work of 'tony mendoza'. 10 from me

almost works, but i without seeing the eyes on the cat, the image is lost

wow. beautiful

I love the wall and the cat, not so fond of the sky. Maybe if you had included more of the wall and less of the sky?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2006 12:03:35 PM
Cool! I like the b/w
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That is a great one. Love the texture on the wall and that the cat is silhouette, just makes it perfect! 9 from me. (I seldom give 10 cause I'm always waiting for the most magnificent)
