Sweet image, very underrated! I love your choice to focus on his paw, he looks so vulnerable and trusting. Lucky Herbert to now have a home with you!

welcome to DPC. Gave you a nine for this one.
I really think it should have gotten a higher placement, but then again what do I know

Glad to hear he found a home! As for editing your comments after a challenge, you can only do that if you have a membership. As for more "umph", you can try playing with levels a bit to brighten it up a touch, but that will also make the bright spot in the upper left a lot more apparent. Still a very cute an engaging kitten shot.

Ok well I don't know how to edit the text under my picture so anyhow, i actually ended up adopting this one myself as no one wanted to take him home- poor thing! He was a bully and a hyperactive kitty, however now that he is with me at home he is the best :) I know the picture is dull, it needs more umph but it was a last minute thing just to see what would happen :)

So Sweet! I just wish I could see more of the eyes, but I love the little paw :o)

Tones are a little dull -- more contrast is needed. Nicely compsoed though and the DOF is clever.

Looks like an alien cat because the eyes are just dark black...

Very god Dof used in this shot, I like the detail of every little hair standing up on the cats paw. I also like the point of view in which this was shot, makes it more interesting.

Great perspective. I am a sucker for a good cat shot. Can't adopt him though - we have too many as it is. ;)
