Such a shame to score so low (although no real surprise here on DPC). I gave you 7.

I really hoped better for this shot. It shows the power & personality of the cat in a way that no perfectly exposed, razor-sharp shot could ever hope to do. Your use of the camera to convey motion & emotion rather than the details of reality is masterful. Good for you. I was one of your 10s & one of your favs. Rock on!

Back to look again. Still love it. Definitely the best 4.4 scoring image I've seen to date! ;) Forget the score, and read the comments.

I particularly like how the dreary tint really sets off the passion of these cats. I want to know more about the capture, but I don't want to spoil the illusion, so I'll just enjoy the photograph. I would like to know if they are fighting or playing, I can't make up my mind.

no F&%$ING way?!?! Voters are really nuts...
one of the best shots i've seen for quite a while here, and was my only 10 in the challenge.

I like the sense of motion and painterly feel to this image. These don't usually do too well here unless the challenge topic invites blur.

Good grief! This score sucks!!!

I gave it an 8, figuring it would not do well. Absolutely love this shot - brilliant!

wow, what an action shot, wish it was a little less blurry

I think this would speak to me more if the colors weren't so subdued. More red, more fire would convey the passion here better for me.

Interesting, but I'd rather see them in focus.

You could assume this is intended as an abstract image and it has merit in that context, but my eye first told me that it was merely an out of focus snap shot rather than intended as an artistic expression

man do those two look angry....

the unusual approach really keeps me looking - bold effort

very abstract like, the longer I look ,the more I like it. I would have preferred a slightly warmer tone to the image, 6

Something's not right here. Looks almost like it was shot from the television.
