    Interesting close-up in the first shot, but I wish his (her?) right eye wasn't cut off. I find it distracting.

    The cat has a great pose in the second picture, but again, I think the background could have been better. It's pretty busy and high contrast which isn't ideal... the vertical line going through the cat's head is what grabbed my attention first. I know it's hard to take pictures of animals because you can't exactly ask them to pose (especially cats!) but it's worth it. You've got a very cute subject there.

    Those are just my opinions, of course.

    Pretty cat.

    The first shot, the crop is kind off... cut her poor eye right in half.

    On all of your shots the color balance is way off... they are all kind of pink. If they appear normal to you, you may need to calibrate your monitor. BTW, taking a picture of a predominantly white subject is a bear, and often creates color problems.

    #2 is the best but could do with a tighter crop to eliminate some of the background. The others in my opinion have big issues with the DoF.

    Depth Of Field. basically when something is in focus and everything else isnt, as in the snake pictures.

    As said, they are all kinda pinkish, 2 and 3 i like. first one is kinda overwhelming for me, and 4 has the subject looking away

    all of the pictures have sort of a "pinkish" or "warm" to them.

    personally i like the dof on the snake shots...

    i think i like #3 the most

    maybe you should try putting the snake in the grass or in a bush to make it look more natural. Unless that (rat snake?) was just slithering along your driveway and its not your pet.

    #1 beautiful - minus the crop
    #2 awesome - the door going down her head isn't distracting to me at all like it was to another poster...
    #3 like it alot - I like the small depth of field
    #4 bad dof - To me my eyes want to follow the body to the head and the body being out of focus makes it very distracting & unpleasing to me... Where as in #3 your instantly hit with the subject (the head) being clear and sharp and his body trailing out of focus which I like...


    I am a noob so take my post lightly it's just a noobs opinion.

    I like the last two alot, but would have liked to see a little bit more of the snake in focus. Overall good shots though.
