Didnt expect this to score as well as it did. The original was pretty weak on his face and I felt the image may be too soft overall to score well. Thank you for the votes and comments.

Here is the original for comparison. I think the odd blur on the image is from a heavy handed dose of Neat Image. Made it all kind of funky. Overall very surprised where it placed as there were many other images better than mine by far (see ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

Great contrast with the colours, especially light teh yellow of the eyes. Just hope you usually keep the plastic bags away :)

Well captured. Seems a bit over-softened to my untrianed eye.

This is a great rendition of what I should have done for this. If I only would have thought of this. Good DOF, focus on eye, color, and contrast. 9

Beautiful eyes on that cat. He's really peeking out isn't he?

I like this shot but the cats face looks a little over processed.

Why bother with expensive pet toys when they love these things so much? Very cute.

so cute! i love the use of lighting and the way the background and cat match... it is like it is a black and white when it is in full color. the cat's eyes are the real focus for me. the writing on the bag is a little disappointing and distracting, but hey, i'm sure you snapped this with no planning and thats how it goes with animals. nice soft focus at the bottom. if there was a way you could edit out the words on the bag, i think this would be a lot better.

oh, how precious! seems like kitty has been "framed"! *grin* Doesn't it make you wonder why they choose plastic/plastic bags?

How cute! Love the big yellow eyes :-)

My only problem...plastic bags are dangerous to play with, even for kitties.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2008 08:48:26 AM
He-he. Figured we'd see some cats in this one...they're so natural at it! :-)
