    ever thought of a flickr account or a imageshack one? only there is so much junck on that other site that your photo is rather lost - plus the two groups will give you image codes to embed into forums which will really help since most people are too lazy to follow a link:
    ps a tip - if you rightclick on the photo on that site and then go to properties there is a line "address" click on that to highlight it and then copy that line.
    Then paste that line into the forum here in a post - with "[ img ] address code [ /img ]" without any spaces or " icons to get this:

    [​IMG]

    As for the photo itself a few pointers:

    1) First if you look at the photo you have space on the left where there is no cat and just greenery from the background - whilst the head of the cat is at the other end of the shot and he is walking right into the edge of the frame. Idealy you want to reverse this - have empty space in the direction the animal is heading since then they are moving into something when the eye follows them - rather than into the edge of the shot.

    2) Also if you look at the front of the cat you can see big areas where its all white - that is overexposed areas or blowout - best thing you can do to limit that is the following:
    a) depending on camera - exposure compensation - set this to underexpose the shot by up to one stop in order to help preserve the highlights from blowing out

    b) point the camera at the brighter parts of the cat - note the apertuer, shutter speed and ISO it picks then dial those into manual mode and shoot - that way your more exposing for the brighter areas

    c) note that with the two methods above using flash for fill light to give more lighting to the shadowed areas is important and can really help keep those areas well exposed

    overread covered most of the things (and more) I was going to say....so that leaves me with:

    The feet are two close to the bottom of the frame, and try to avoid non natural things, erm man made would be a better way to put that. (the concrete wall) Especially obvious things, not sayiing its obvious.....try using a larger aperture. 3.5 is plenty enough for me, and the further away the backround, the more the backround becomes out of focus.

    Why are you bumping this? You should state what you want to learn from the photograph you have taken, not just throw it out there for people to look at. Tell us what your critique is and we can gauge where you might be able to learn a thing or two. Just by posting this here and saying "is this better?" doesn't help you improve much if any. The difference between a good photograph and a snapshot is the thought behind it, and with your shots, they seem to just be pointing the camera at something that looks cool and clicking. I don't mean to sound harsh but you've posted 3 mediocre pictures without explaining what your purpose was in taking them. Fill us in where the photo can't and you'll get a better response from everyone here.

    ^^ Too right.

    Overread gave a fairly concise crit. Gratitude or, at the very least, an acknowledgement would have been the proper form rather than just a bump.

    BTW, Overread & EhJsNe have valid points.
