My baby kitty, Sugar. Her colors and her eyes are such beautiful pastel shades...but I'm sure this is a 5.1 (if I'm lucky). Sorry, WPL moms!! :)

What a beautiful cat and very nice DOF! Is she a Ragdoll?

Thanks...no secret, really...I figured this one for a 5.1 or 5.2 because it's a kitten. I used to think I had DPC voters figured out, but that is far from the truth. I have no idea what they want from challenge to challenge. I just take pictures I like now, and if it fits, all the better. :) The biggest challenge with this picture was getting Sugar to sit still for a few moments while I focused. Now THAT was a challenge!! :)

The eyes of this cute kitty are the ultimate in pastels. This is an instant 10. I like the way the whiskers stand out, as well as the pink nose. Wish I could hold this little one!

the kitty looked depressed (or attentive). That in itself held my attention when I first looked at this shot. I like the blurred background and that grainy-ness (sorry english problem). I like your shot.

One of the better kitty photos I've seen! Adorable and perfect for the challenge. I don't think she/he could look any sweeter.

I like the soft haze. The more I look at the photo the more I realize those are some intense eyes, mezmerizing.
