Sorry, but you got it all wrong... The beauty is actually the cat! I guess, that is absolutely true that he should be in focus then...
My only excuse is that I had just a minute before he ran away.
And don't feel bad about my daughter being a beast, she suggested the title herself.
Thank you all so much for the heartwarming comments and good votes! Feels so nice, though I give all credit to the models...

What a beautiful, charming portrait! I like that the cat is a little oof so that full attention is on the girl's sweet and lovely face. One of my ribbon picks. 10

Gorgeous child; love the freckles. The B&W conversion really works.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Fantastic B&W tones and compositional crop bring me right to your main subject - the smiling girl with her cuddled cat. Very lovely girl and candid moment caught here. Lighting and details are spot on - a little blurred for the cat - maybe cat moved while shot was taken which a higher ISO will take care of and/or a higher aperature 7.1 or higher to get a greater DOF (although you may not get that nice bokeh background so it might just be a toss-up to what is best). None-the-less maybe a little blur is not so bad - life happens and movement gives this a feeling of being there at that moment to see and observe the beauty of the moment a girl cradling her beloved pet.

this would have been a 10 if the cat was sharp.ok If you had stepped back got more in then cropped is one way, also use a big number apature ie f11 /f22. that would give you more depth,and keep both child and cat in focus,. anyway its worth an 8 from me

A 9 from me. (one of only two) THIS is beautiful. Her face... even if she weren't beautiful herself (which she is)... that smile... and that cat loving it.

Beautiful.
