    The noise is annoying but it was not really a planned out shot so lighting was what it was.... Trying to work on my composition. Thoughts appreciated

    your crop is a bit too tight. it would have been better if the top of the cats back wasnt cut out.
    also, when playing to the RO3, its better to shoot the subject at a bit of an angle towards the open space. otherwise i would have gone with more of a portrait composition.

    Too bad you cut off his ears but, other than that, I like this photo. The composition is fine. You have an idea of where this is from what is seen of the background but it is so vague that it is not annoying at all.

    And the light is not that bad.

    I took a small liberty of cropping and straightening just to drop a new perspective...Ideally a clean glass would be nice as well.

    BTW, I do like the photo or I would not have bothered.

    have a good one

    Thanks for the tips guys, I think on the next shot I'll try to get more of the cat in, I had the camera on the floor so it was more of a crap shoot on what actually got in the shot

    that crop is too tight. you would want something between the two.

    I'm interested why you guys think my crop is too tight. In the original photo you have a poor bokeh of a tail and some pink, blue and what appears to be the blown highlights of a wall. When I look at the original photo I feel my eyes being drawn in that direction only to be left w/nothing that adds to the message of the image. The floor in the foreground already tells the viewer that you're indoors, so what else is needed?

    Centering the subject is not such a poor concept...Ansel Adams was known to do it a few times in his day! [​IMG]

    have a good one
