Cats, need I say more...

Photoshop was convert from RAW, curves, selective color on the eyes to make them stand out a little more, noise reduction, resize, usm, save for web. Very simple, and not my best shot, but it seemed to fit the challenge the best.


Post Challenge-My third 11th place...now if i could just find the secret to getting into the top ten :)

I remember this shot as one of my favorites. I think it was my second or third 10 I ever handed out. I think it should have won easily. Oh well.

Oh, those darn cats. I like the shallow DoF and (natural?) lighting. Definitely in the spirit of the challenge.

The irony of it all. Great expression on the cat.

Bright spot needs darkening. If the cat was looking at the camera this shot would have more impact. Still a good entry.

Hehe...I hope he isn't stuck. I like the focusreching into the carpet.

I wonder what this would look like with the rug partially unfolded. Or a tighter shot towards the cat's face.

Wonderful! Was this staged, or just a shot of opportunity? Awful cute either way.

Best cat shot in the challenge. I like that he isnt looking at the camera.

One of my favorites for this challenge. Not only did it stay within the theme of the challenge, but the quality of the photo was solid. Great Job!

Such a fun capture. I feel like the cat is tense and ready to spring out at any moment! Very nice. Back to bump you up to 8.

really good idea, but IMO the crop could be much tighter to minimize the background 6
