This is one I took a while back, but I really love it. Totally an accident, had left my camera on manual with far too long an exposure time for a bright sunny day, so ended up with this. Not super blurry, but definitely not sharp :-)

Beautiful composition and pose, am so glad you didn't bin it when you realised your mistake! or more aptly it's serendipity.

The softness and overexposure of this is simply perfect. Sometimes "accidents" are the best, don't you think? I prefer to call it serendipity. This is one such example.

Just right. I really like the over exposure, and the position of the cat. Very graceful.

I love the way the cat wraps itself around the picture space. High key softness is gorgeous.

The soft blur works really well and I love the position of the cat in the frame, especially the left front foot.

This is wonderful. Really well done. I can hear Mama Cass' hit song wafting in the breeze around this gem of a kitty.

I started to read your comments while scrolling the page and thought you said, "left my camera on super blurry". It would help to have that button. BTW, great photo. I really like the blur and the way the cat wraps around the frame.
