For the challenge I left a lot of empty space so it was apparant the room was indeed empty, except for my subject.
I like the tighter cropped version I have for my own personal use better.

Levels
Curves

Cloned out small wall outlet and slight light reflection on wall.

Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: I am impressed that you could get such a crisp image with him in such crisp focus at 1.3 seconds. He must be well trained.

Lighting: Your lighting is very, very nice. There is a warm feeling to the image and there are no harsh shadows or blown highlights.

Composition/Content: I like the leading lines that are provided by the flooring and wall logs, but I think that the floor heater is a bit distracting. More than likely, that wasn't avoidable as you chose the perfect spot in the room for his position. All the lines converge nicely at the subject.

My Opinion: Very nice wok meeting the challenge in such a creative manner. Do you have an outfit that matches? ;)

lolol. I wonder who! Very nice picture and I love his expression. The lighting is good along with most of the detail. The noise reduction software seems to take out a lot of detail from the walls. Still a good photo! 7

This image would have had a lot more impact had you been able to take out the heating register along the wall. But a cute picture anyway.

It's hard to feel the emptiness of the room because such a small part of it is shown.

Cute image. A slightly different angle may have worked better placing the subject so as not competing with the light colored baseboard for attention. Nice job on the lighting.

I tried to get the cat to sit in the corner but it wouldn't stay put - dogs are so much more amenable!

I am guessing shutterpug...I had this idea for my white dog in my daughter's white room...didn't get to pull it off

This is excellent and one of the best so far 9
