The voting swings are all over the place. Yikes!

The set up of this shot was much to easy. The cat was not interested at all in the fish....but she was interested in a Q-tip I had placed on top of the blender. The problem I had was picking which one...I had 13 of them that I loved. I did like her cross-eyed expression in this image...so I hope I picked the right one. I started off with a 5.6 with 4 votes and now am up to a 6.9 with 70 votes. I hope it holds up there.

I'm glad you got a ribbon for this shot. Great job. Between the two photos you have here you definitely picked the correct one. Both are good, but I love how your cat is peering over the top of the blender as her gears are turning trying to figure out the best way to get what she wants! Congrats!

I like the comosition and the humor. I like the lighting. That said the pose of the cat is kind of odd with the front body and feet hidden.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2009 10:43:33 AM
Love it!

08/21/2009 01:48:42 PM
It's like a magic trick! Its a nice set up but the blender seems like the third subject in the picture. It just lacks oomph
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2009 11:56:41 AM
Great idea and lighting..it would have been neat to see the cat wrap its tail or body around the blender, but its cute as is, 7.

Gross thought, cool pic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice composition, lighting, and idea.
The posture and expression of the cat are excellence!
This photo can be used for a commercial poster.

Very sharp, great composition, excellent lighting. Absolutely lovely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2009 03:03:39 AM
another blende, ok. I can see the edge of the table (?) in the back, there's little light on the fish and very little color (too little) in the picture as a whole.
All peanuts but they add, hope you don't mind my 7
