The picture is pretty much straight from camera. Cropped, sharpened once, more minimal than advanced editing.

Great range on the blacks and whites. I love the title, if that's the kitty's name, it must raise eyebrows when you call him ;-)

Elegant. Great lighting control. Black on black is hard.

Wonderful composition. I can't believe you got the cat to stay there, and not give you a condescending look! It was worth the effort, beautiful picture.

The crowned princess is looking quite elegant for her portrait shoot :)

The jewelry looks contrived, but your pet appears regal in that pose.

Nice pose, good focus, and correctly exposed. I think the black background may hurt this a bit though.

I'm not a big cat fan (dog person) but WOW. Great catch lights in the eyes.

Looks like royalty :-) Cat may blend into the b/g just a tad too much, but the eyes are captivating.

I love the pearls. Nice lighting. I like the black on black (subj v background)

The pose is absolutely stunning, and the cat does look like a bored, spoiled goddess :-) On my monitor it looks like you lost some detail in the shadows, but overall a lovely job of exposing black on black AND a bright white pedestal.

Really like those pearls/choker, just find the pedestal dominates/distracts a little too much. Looks like good control of the blacks.

Excellent shot! I love the pearls and the pose. Good lighting to differentiate the cat from the black background.

Excellent lighting and focus. I really don't care for the column. Love the pearls.
