    Hi Andrea. I love the color of your cat's eyes. I can never get close enough to my cat to get good pictures.

    Welcome to the forums. You will learn a lot here.

    Animals and children are the two most difficult things to photograph. What you need is lots of patience, lots of film and lots of cunning.
    But for a 'begginer' it's a really nice shot. Try getting a little lower and get rid of that rug (;-) ) and if you make a small sound when you are just about to press the shutter the cat will usually look at the lens (kids do it too :) )

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    That was going to be my only comment.....the ears got cropped out, and they are such important parts of kitty faces. :)

    It's nice when animals are looking at you directly, but I love the relaxed expression here. This would be a lovely informal moment, but for the missing ears. The eyes are beautiful!! :D I don't think that pattern on the rug detracts from the image at all.
