    Nice contrast - but seem a bit dark - might be this computer or your scan, hard to see the cat'a face in shot #2, but I don't think that really distracts from the picture - I think it may have been better in colour; shot #1 needs more look space for a profile. Can you tell us about the type of film or is it digital?

    The first picture in the best to me. The attitude of the cat really shines and that is important to capture. The picture does appear a little dark and what appears to be shadow behind the cat's head is a little distracting.

    Overall nice shot. 8)

    i am just wondering- if you have black cats and ok lighting- do you use a red filter or do you think a light color filter would bring out the dark better? nice pics- i have a black lab so i am just wondering

    thanks for the feedback guys.
    They were taken on my digital camera, in color and then I changed them to black and white. The moniter I did that on was very bright so I made the pics darker than I had intended to.

    I don't think i would use any filters on these cats, maybe a blue filter if you were shooting color indoors, but cats aren't generally still enough for the f/stop loss. I kinda like the first pic, the second doesn't do much for me though.

    The first pic i think could be stronger if cropped. A little tighter like this would be cool. I think this is really where your best picture is, IMHO.

    Some might even like a really tight crop, the paw is cute, but it may detract from the impact of the photo. i can't decide between the two myself, but either would be stronger i think.

    Anyways, never be afraid to cut up your pics to really draw attention to your subject, sometime you may find you cut out alot of what you like in a picture to end up with the strongest final result.

    thanks for the advice
    and to the "you stole my girlfriend's cat" person: haha close. they do look rather similar but obviously it is unlogical that I would have 'stolen' your girlfriend's cat. Same breed though. We have good taste in cats.

    Hey Havoc, nice job on the first crop. Talk about a cat with an attitude!! 8)

    I agree cropping can help tremendously in some pictures.
