    I am new to the boards, my husband and I are photographers and are always looking to learn. Would love to get some feedback on this picture.

    Not sure what you mean by being new to the board - ?

    But I just love that photo, it's great. And the girl is beautiful.

    Wow Mags is digging deep. :lol:

    Nice shot Ali. I agree with Mags the cat doesn't look happy and I know unhappy cats. Ever try to sit in a grumpy cats favorite chair....OUCH!!!

    LOL, I know all too well about that. What's funnier is to get a kitten a collar with a bell on it and watch her chase herself all over the house wondering where that bell is :)

    :lol: My big male cat once got a plastic grocery bag stuck around him while playing and flipped out- ran around tearing things up. It took about 5 minutes for me to realize what all the racket was...and it took him doing it again before he stopped playing with the things- yes a second time. Needless to say he does not like them anymore or the sound and flips out everytime I go to put a new garbage bag in the trash can. :lol: he is such a freak now.

    Jeeze some really good pictures pass by here sometimes with little comment. I do not usually care for colored black and Whites but it works for me in this picture. Good one!

    Thanks for digging the picture up Magali :thumbsup:

    Over exposure on the bit where the cat joins the hand (lol - that sounds stupid but I hope you know what I mean). Otherwise, the shot rulez. The juxtaposition of the two sets of eyes really works for me. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

    Thanks everyone. I use that selective color well, selectively :) There was just something about the eyes in this picture that begged me to make them more prominent. Good point on the overexposure Ducky. This was one of our first shoots with the studio lighting. Gosh, now that I think of it, this shot was taken nearly a year ago back when I was still living in MN :shock: How time flies!

    It's still a dman fine shot tho... and I am dead glad that it was "dug out of the archives." I would never have seen it otherwise.
