Post challenge: I feel that this is way underrated. Why do people believe a photo must be in focus everywhere? This shot wouldn't work, if the cat was in focus, it would be a kitten shot, not an advertisement shot for milk!

Brilliant shot- bunch of dummies that don't get it...

What Don said. And I think the cat has a very clever and coveting look - he wants that milk and is trying to think of a way to get it without getting in trouble. I think it would make an excellent ad.

Hehe. Joker.

I think what kept me from scoring this higher than I did (which was 8) was the cat's body language. On first impression it seemed the cat did not want to be there and was looking at the milk suspiciously.

Same Siamese? :-)

Don, who had ever thought you were that funny.

Really thought this would ribbon or at the least be in the top five.

The only thing I don't like is the cat's eyes distract me from the subject. But i agree that the cat is better out of focus - it's not the subject of the photo.

Oh, I LOVE this one. If it were me being the judge -- this one would have a ribbon under it!

Stunning shot, Oliver. Very underrated.

I was sure this would finish in the top 20 somewhere.

Seems that too many people simply didn't get the picture. Doesn't change the fact that it's a good shot though : )

Good DoF, great lighting.

I gave you a nice ten spot. I like the reflections of the eyes in the glass.

cool. 7

If you would have had a black background it would have made the milk and cat stand out
02/11/2008 09:37:58 AM
Very nice composition and use of color, or lack thereof.

simple and very effective

Mean looking moggy . . Nice clean shot of the milk, perhaps a little sharp edged around the Cat's ears, but overall very nice.

Definition is low.
02/10/2008 07:04:40 AM
nice picture
02/10/2008 01:48:52 AM
I don't really like the white background, it causes the cat's head to appear like it's floating in the air.
02/08/2008 06:47:21 PM
I like the reflection of the cat's eyes on the glass, but the poor kitty is not focused well at all.
02/07/2008 09:33:25 PM
The cat in the background really balances out the picture and adds interest. It has very pretty blue eyes! The glass of milk is also clear and sharp.

Product is displayed prominantly and attractively. (that's a good looking glass of milk!) cat adds some ambience and the comp lends itself well for text placement. Nice job.

02/07/2008 06:09:33 PM
cool.. you tried it in black & white - 7
02/07/2008 10:22:44 AM
That cat is kinda freakin me out a bit but i like the washed out palette except for the cats eyes. Although the milk is the only thing in focus the color in the cats eyes is distracting me from it.
02/06/2008 08:25:17 PM
Oh, let me see the cat some more!
02/06/2008 04:51:57 PM
Your cat scares me. Great photo though, should place high.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2008 04:37:37 PM
Great idea. I'd like to see more dof, though, with the cat's face in focus.
02/06/2008 04:20:30 PM
puuuuuuurrrrrrrrrfect. An excellent take on this challenge.

I just love the milk coloured cat with the darker head and paws. Good control of depth of field. Magnificent!

02/06/2008 09:42:32 AM
would be an amazing shot if the cat was in focus
02/06/2008 09:41:54 AM
I love this picture.

Effective! Love your high key and cat out of focus... 8
