Ok, I thought you could mold spam. You can't -- you have to carve it!!

This has to be the smelliest challenge I've ever entered!!
_________________________

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments and kind voting! What a fun challenge! And nope, he didn't get to eat any--he throws up enough as it is!

p.s., my other cat wasn't so patient. 805497.jpg--I don't know which is worse, carving the SPAM, or retrieving the mouse ear that the first cat pulled off and reattaching it for the rest of the shots!

Very nice! Maybe a more natural background would work better than pure white, but you did a great shot! (I want to see the next shot you took,,, with the cat eating the spamouse)

Very cute idea. Nice execution (excuse the choice of words). Looks like there is a tiny bit of anomaly in the white background behind the "mouse". Very nice choice of crop - to get one cat paw mostly in.

lol, good idea, nice lighting, 6.

I have this tied for first place. Very clever.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/02/2009 06:00:17 PM
LOL... I opened a can of SPAM to take my shot the other day and my cat flipped out... I'm surprised yours held still long enough to get the shot, mine was licking her chops. Very clever shot!

This looks like a familiar composition, but its a really good one. Think the shadows need to go away and there are some dark streaks in the background. But I still think this will ribbon

Ohhh, poor little kitty! Good job and really interesting take on the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/01/2009 06:18:22 PM
I think this would be better with a somewhat stronger fill light from the right hand side.

07/01/2009 03:50:14 PM
hee hee. Nice shot!

Some background issues, but otherwise excellent!

Nice composition and well lit, shaping it like a mouse makes SPAM even less appealing. But delicious to a cat.
