Overhead light, desk light and that's it!

This is my cat and I like it very much too! I like it too much. I think that it is a little blury on the cat's leg but hey I was there when you took it and he was moving. The way that you caught the cat's face was good because he looks like what he is saying! CUTE! I think that you deserve a higher place!

I have to say not only does Melissa bring you luck, she's comes off very well on camera. Perhaps you have a future model in the family? Keep up the good work!

Good expression and idea. Seems to have a lot of noise making the image look a little lower quality than it should. Also, I would have considered moving her farther from the wall.

This is really good. I like the use of b&w - your lighting is good. There seems to be some grain or focus issues - but they are minor. The shadows cast add a nice effect.

Good idea, and the girl has a great surprised expression. If only determining the sex of a cat were so easy!

:-) Poor cat...

I like he noise in this picture, adds a nice touch. The expression on the girl doesn't look fake which is good, too many shots in this challenge are too posed.

What a great catch. Shock and the cat looks sooo bored! Good capture.

Adorable set up! Geat expressionon both faces! I wish the lighting had been done such that there would be no shadows or sharp shadows. Maybe crop in from top and bottom a bit.

Great expression, attractive model, well done photo. The forearm might be a little overexposed.

Focus is a little soft. A little grainy. The shadows are a bit distacting to me. Really nice photo.

Cute idea, and well expressed surprise. Nicely photographed, though I think the lighting could be better arranged to avoid the dark shadows.
