Wow thanks for the comments and scores everyone. I was surprised this did so well. I didn't realize my moniter needed calibrating and brightness needed adjusting so I was horrified when I viewed it on our laptop. This could have looked a hell of a lot better. Luckily many viewed this with their moniter brightness down.lol
I was so sad about it - your scores and comments made me feel alot better. Thanks again

Very cute capture. Looks like a nice healthy cat L()L. needs a touch of something. Maybe a little levels. Not much just a touch to give it some extra pop.

Oh wow, this is SUCH perfect lighting! Would love to hear what your light source was for this. (And by the way, very adorable cat too.)

Sorta like a Rembrandt painting of Barney. Nicely focused.

Looks kinda smudgey. (is that a word?)

Hey, this is my cat's twin! Really. Very good expression on his face and nice job overall. I like the detail above his eyes and around his nose.

processing seems very strange around the edges of the cat.

Beautifully illuminated...really sets this apart from the usual cat portrait.

What lovely light! Very nice portrait.

I would have preferred it if you'd cleaned up that background completely. I wiped my monitor, but the smudge is still there... distracting to say the least. Maybe on your monitor did not see what I'm talking about (and I can see the difference between the two whites on the far left and two blacks on the far right so it is not my monitor). pity, such a great image.

cute cat. he looks so sad and bored. theres some weird blurriness around him though. not sure what it is but its very distracting. great composition though.

I think if he were sharper and the burning looked less obvious I would like this better. Overall, a nice capture. I am just not sure about the pp.

Beautiful cat portrait. Barney seems to be leaning his head right out of my computer screen. Awesome lighting!

the light is very nice.

Composition: 6 - Nice to have him looking into the frame with good negative space on the right
Technical: 5 - Nice and sharp, well exposed, but there seems to be grey splotches and stuff in the background from editing, is your monitor calibrated?
Creativity: 4 - Not really anything unique about the shot.
Appeal: 3

Overall Calculated Average Score: 4

Lovely photo of a thoughtful moggy.

I love the lighting of this photo. It's so hard to get cats to pose for you. (i've got cats that either run up to the lens, or run away!) . Great shot.

What a beautiful capture! One of my cats died yesterday so this is really cheering me up.

I am not normally a cat photo fan but this is great. Good enough to make me reconsider liking cats!
