    Hmmm took this pic the other day. I highly like the colors and the way he's blended into the background. What would you guys have done to improve this pic....or is it ok the way it is?

    I like it, and I really like the way the fence leads straight up to him.

    I really like it Lyanna and I wouldn't change anything. This cat is too cute to change :)

    great shot. the frame is nice too.

    the yellow color really controls the photo.

    I like the shot a lot. The only (and I admit I am completely over the top about this in my own work - it's my little obsession!) thing that I see is a loss of details in the cat's left eye (on the right hand side of the photo. I always try to have the eyes stand out a bit, esp with animals because they are so expressive. I really like the photo and colors.

    This is a cute picture of the cat, but there are a few things to experiment with. I believe this photo could be more dramatic and begin to tell a story if things were so stiff.

    Taking a low angle looking at the cat's stare could begin to tell a story, or perhaps backing away slightly to create a distant effect on the fence could too. Play around... you may like what you see better.

    yup, I wanted to have the shot show what he was staring at, or maybe shooting him right in the face so to speak, but I couldn't really. He was high up on the fence and I was balancing on the arms of a garden chair to even get level with him *g*

    Darn cats, they always sit in spots you don't want them to :D
