First time posting pictures here. Just a few shots around the yard as i try to learn and get better.

My cat Jasmine hiding between to Hostas to get away from the heat.

I really love your last shot, the cat seem so comfy like if the wall was warmed up by the sun. It gives a good feeling!

# 1: I like the idea but we see too much of the plants and not enough of the cat, DOF is a little too shallow,
# 2: A nicely detailed macro shot, but a little too busy.
#3: I would crop the left part of the image and the bottom, it would put more accent on the bird who is a little lost. Focus is out a bit too but I lilke the plant behind and it makes a nice image. May be it is my screen but I would lower the saturation, the green of the leaves attract the eye too much and it would be better to have the cute bird stand out a little bit more!

I like the first one, like the shallow DOF. But I would use layers in PS to bring the cat up a stop, and MAYBE bring the leaves down a stop (or maybe leave them as is, depending on the result I get).
