    i like how you have the pretty kitty secluded,
    number one is awesome, i love how he is stretching you arm, it draws you into the picture.

    i also like the crop on number too, i think b/c the colors work so well together, but Mr. kitty is slightly blurry.

    1 & 2 are definitely my favorites, but I agree with Christina... the crop on 2 catches my eye but when I look closely it seems slightly blurry. 1 is very engaging!

    Oooh! #1 is amazing. Love the expression on his face and how his arm being extended makes me feel like I am looking into the photo not just at it :)

    Well done, I think all these shots are a huge improvement form the last set you posted!

    Thanks, everyone! #1 is by far my favorite as well. I had a few other shots of it.. truly looked like a violinist when you look over them quickly in order.

    Yes, I do notice #2 was a bit blurry- Missed my focus point there. It just happened to be the closest resemblance to #3 and I was going to try to put them together to make one cat by flipping one of them.. but it didn't fit good enough ;) Hehe. Thanks for the critique.

    #1 is a GORGEOUS shot! Looks like it should be in a calendar! The choice of the background was perfect. :)

    I LOVE them. Your cats certainly are photogenic. They seem to love laying there having their pictures taken. I love the last shot too, I swear your cat is saying "Okay, seriously, I've had enough of this now, get this camera OUT OF MY FACE already"

    #1 is an amazing shot. Lighting, DOF, composition and focus bang on.
    Nice work.

    Wanna know a secret? Lol. I am just learning the manual settings on m ycanon, and #1 is the first manual shot I think I may have posted yet. Very glad to hear that it goes over very well. I cant stand how blurry the automatic settings make a picture- Manual is a bit more difficult with an animal as they are always moving, but with some patience I think I may just have got it!

    #1 was pretty hard to catch, she was actually cleaning herself and stopped to stretch for a moment, Lol.

    Number 1 is my favourite one - it is the most pleasing one for me.
