Yay, a Top Ten!

This is my girlfriend and our 6 month old kitten Reese. He has a ton of personality, a sweet disposition, and a photogenic face, which made him the perfect subject for this challenge. I really lucked out that he yawned while I was shooting, and this frame happened to not have much motion blur. It also happened to look like he was singing, or giving us a serious talk.

The cat's expression made me crack up. :)
01/30/2012 02:30:22 PM
I love how the whiskers come forward in the pre-yawn; sweet!!

I like the dof. The human's face is very expressive and if it was in focus, it would have drawn too much attention from the priceless expression of that cat.
01/30/2012 12:11:29 PM
When they yawn, it always looks like they're singing. ;) Cute!
01/30/2012 11:57:08 AM
Just love that face.
01/30/2012 10:35:23 AM
That is one surprised-looking kitty, haha. Lovely cat, great focus, nice happy owner bokehd behind. I don't like the border personally as I don't think it's needed.
