Taken just because I had my camera next to my computer, when Kitty hopped onto the window sill and revelled the midday sun.

Played around in Lightroom and sort of enjoyed the extreme sharpening on the fur.

The expression really makes this image, along with the detail and nice light.

For me this view highlights its resemblance to its wild relatives (puma, lion ...) -- very nice portrait.

This is a nice cat portrait. It displays him as a powerful leader.

Great picture, but to me he doesn't look blissful. He's probably a good natured, gorgeous puss, but with that expression what comes to mind is Really Sinister Thoughts or maybe even Cat's Downright Evil. (Sorry!)
High score anyway.
