smart sharpen

my over-used cat, the light is sunlight coming thru the big 'ol rhododendron in the front yard, by the way the western rhododendron is the official state flower of my fair state of Washington.
I reckon i'll get a 5.1 on this, no real reason, just my gut feeling......

well what a pleasant surprise, i started hoping it would take 3 place on my profile page but either way it would be a shot of the stupid cat! LOL

Did you steal my cat. :)
My cat looks very similar, several shots on DPC.
Great stare and background.

Wonderful capture with amazing detail, especially in the eyes. I like the way the light falls across his face and chest, well done... 10

I like. My eye is drawn straight to the cat's face. Good use of depth of field.

Great use of DOF to really isolate your subject.

Dappled Cat in dappled light. Nice detail, good composition. A bit clishe, but I can imagine, how tempting it is to make another portrait of your favourite model :)

Wow - Looks exactly as I remember a part in Pink Floyd's The Wall. Just after the child says, "Look Mommy there's a little plane up in the sky". Then this very cat runs after a dove. A little spooky. Dappled effect enhances your image rather than complicating it as I've seen in so many others. Subdued.
