I love the color scheme in your photograph but I feel that the DOF is slightly shallow. The focus point seems to be on the cat's nose and I feel it would have been better on the eyes. The eyes seem slightly soft focused. The only other distraction, IMO, is the black open area on the top left. It splits the picture up.

Overall a nice picture but no wow factor. I would of scored it better if the eyes would of been sharper. As I said above I like the color scheme. I wish you well in this and future challenges. bump to six.

I would have given anything if you had put 2 or 3 feathers around his mouth!

I think you reversed the meaning of the challenge. The parakeet's last words were "nope, I haven't seen the cat. Why?" The cat's not the one saying his last words.

An OK shot fo the cat but it really feels like you stuck a feather down beside a sleeping cat rather than the cat is guilty of eating the bird
