Cute cat, but the focus is way too soft and the eyes are burnt out.

Great use of colors, but out of focus.

Slightly out of focus, glowing eyes distract, getting blown out by the flash.

Sorry to offend,but this is awful!

A cat is not a lion, the focus is off, and you have glowing eyes. There is nothing good about this picture. You need to try a little harder if you want to do well here.

Good luck!
01/30/2004 05:41:42 AM
lacks clarity
01/30/2004 03:18:37 AM
Cute idea but I would perhaps shoot this with a different angle (perhaps from below, looking up) so the picture doesnt look so static.

Ooo, Space Cat! Gotta love the cat's eyes.

quality of photo not good, very pixelly. would have been better taken with natural lighting, not a flash. the flash washes out the colors and caused 'red' eye. image also very blurry, and well, he could really use a mane to bring him closer to being leo-ish. :P overall, the execution is off and the way the subject matter was handled does not capture interest.

Cool cat...too fuzzy..eyes are flared....but hey......its got good colors and its chopped well. Good luck in the future.......

Sorry to be blunt, but... poor focus, harsh lighting, bland subject. The colors are vibrant, though! ;)

Yellow eyes and lack of focus are big problems here.
01/29/2004 12:52:31 PM
The cat/lion jump is a little hard for me. I like the background color as contrast to the cat's color but the cat itself is a little soft. It looks to be a flash shot, perhaps you could try some indirect softer lighting.

what happened to your cat ?lol
01/29/2004 09:25:50 AM
Out of focus and the heavy glow of the eyes are distracting
01/29/2004 05:14:03 AM
The image is out of focus, the on camera flash has given the cat "red eye", there's nothing very special about the composition and the vibrant blue backgorund/foreground is extremely distracting. Bear in mind that this is all my opinion, so please take it for what it's worth.

I'm sorry to say that I had to give this shot a 1.

the image is blurry and doesn't really provoke an interest for me. The slant and lines in the sheet the cat is sitting on doesn't work very well as it pushes me off the picture. the whites are a little blasted out on the cat.

eyes are too reflective - try a bounce flash or other lighting. in a portrait the eyes are everything, the point of focus. this pic is not in charp focus.
01/28/2004 09:05:04 PM
out of focus and bad light - the bright eyes freak me out! lol j/k. Unfortunately is a more like a snap shot.
01/28/2004 07:30:13 PM
Leo is out of focus. ?Was this hand-held? Maybe a tripod next time. The cat's color and the blue is beautiful together. Great looking cat.

Spooky eyes!

01/28/2004 05:12:36 PM
Its a nice cat, the reflection in the eyes really spoil this and while Leo is a 'cat' this does not work very well for me.
01/28/2004 11:59:17 AM
Yeah, good try. But this need to be sharp. The flash reflect so much in its eyes, given a strange look. But talk seriously, why cats has with lions?
01/28/2004 11:22:44 AM
needs better focus and no glowing eyes
01/28/2004 10:51:23 AM
Way too fuzzy.
01/28/2004 10:47:23 AM
To much light in the eyes.
01/28/2004 10:29:27 AM
A little out of focus. Maybe the low light condition was giving the AF a difficult time.
01/28/2004 12:17:29 AM
I would have been better in focus.
