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 21_F.gif aimeethetoo).

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.

Very sharp, clear, and interesting!

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! :-)
