I'm a sucker for cats, love the shot. Just noticed you used an Oly PEN, too. Extra cool points from me! ;-)

Congrats!

This is such a beautiful portrait of you sweet kitty. Mine just past away last Tuesday and the pictures I have of him and his toys are things I'm going to treasure and remember him by.

Fantastic shot. Sharp enough but has an appealing softness which suits the subject. Gorgeous cat too and lovely lighting. Best of luck with this, I think it will do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2012 12:02:01 PM
Lighting and detail are lovely, this cat looks VERY comfortable on the deep red cushion -- excellent title fit. The open eyes and reclining head are very nice. Not sure I would have cropped the ear tip off but this is still a top pick for me.
Not sure why I thought the tip of the ear was cut off -- I must have needed to scroll as it's obviously there now LOL Sure glad I didn't deduct :)

Beautiful! the all story in one title and one look.
10 for the perfect match.
01/04/2012 10:37:50 AM
Oh, this is pretty. The cat looks so content, and the colors work well together. I especially like the contrast of the green eyes and the red quilt.

01/04/2012 10:29:26 AM
Very nice cat portrait. The royal red really pops out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2012 09:20:32 AM
I normally hate cat images. In fact, I once said "If I see another cat image on DPChallenge, I'm going to shoot this computer." Well, this is a really good shot of a cat, and I have to give you a good score because I am just impressed and you really captured the username well. So, 8/10 for this doggone cat.
