Might have guessed this was yours. I was one of your 9's. Fabulous shot.

Wow that is definitely four Catastrophes. The car part is especially poignant.

I have no idea what it is, nor do I care, nor do I really want to know what it is. I just love it. 9

Hmmm...an interesting abstract. I can't wait to come back to this post-challenge and get the full story.

Love this so much!

There are a nice collection of 10s (for me) in this challenge. I wish I could give this a 12.

is this cutout? if so (or even if not), i can see why some might think it's had expert editing used. this is just a fantastic assortment of visuals that work very well together.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I liked this before I spotted the cat and then it really came alive! Also, once I do see the cat and have that anchor for my eye and brain I begin to wonder how you shot and achieved this... I have no answers though - is it simply reflections of trees in the glass that you've given a bit of a treatment to>

Critical stuff: Nothing

Overall: Highly intriguing and well crafted image.

Only a cat would smile amongst so much violence. 10

I love that the drama here seems to creep in from the corners and edges. Not unlike peripheral vision. Amazing.

I never tried to imagine The Four Catastrophes before, and this picture is probably the reason why I resisted ... I could not have imagined it half as well as you and your Cat have. This is a thrilling photograph, beautiful, witty, but also a little unsettling (like Garfield's Apocalypse might be), and I'll enjoy seeing it every day as it hangs on my imaginary 2010 wall of excellence. Thank you.

Looks like a Posthoumus ribbon candidate. Quite puzzling and surrealistic.

What an awesome title. And so very mysterious and playful. The kitty corner seals the deal for me.

Love the image but feel that it would benefit from a 90 degree rotate to the right

I just now saw the cat on the bottom right...really good abstract

Did you know there is a cat in the bottom of your shot? :) Interesting photo for sure, but I get lost in it. Good Luck!

This is really neat! I almost didn't notice the kitty at the bottom.
