This is Charlie. He is one of our 5 cats. He was the only one being kind enough to be my model. :)

Charlie looks like a particularly happy cat who knows he has you well trained to take care of his every need. He was kind enough to be your model only because it suited him at the time and he thinks he's beautiful. Which, of course, he is!

DAMN! What a shot! What a capture! Congrats on a superb shot! This shot really shows what YOU can do with the 400D! Absolutely superb sharpness and composition. Mesmerizing shot! Well done! The colours, the capture, all awe-inspiring.

8 - Very nice. Wish Sleepy Head's left eye had more light. Don't mind the fore fabric in this as it is quite 'clean' and a nice complementary pattern and color. Eyes sharper make this even better, in my opinion.

I like the DOF and the rich deep coloration. Nicely focused. I hate it that the pattern of the chair conflicts, but with animals, what can you do? I think I might have cropped just to the left of the left cheek as the paw isn't a necessary aspect to the shot. Too bad you can't clone out the plaid. LOL 6

I love cats , I can't imagine my life without them and grey ones have something special.
This one is simply fantastic , relaxed but with the eyes opened to see what's happening around him/her.
What I like in this photo : of course the pose , the focus , the cushion (or blanket) that gives contrast because of its color and adds a diagonal element and the way you have used lights and shadows.
Very nice !
