I guess 5.4
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think your guess is pretty accurate. I only gave it a five because for me there's too much light on the mouse and I really wish it looked more real. Predict a 5.75 or maybe even closer to your guess.

nice textures, but you must realize that the public will never believe that cats eat with knives and forks, and you are bound to incur outrage at the paw binding of the mouse... I predict 5.7777. 6 from me.

Very cute. I say 5.9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This could be a 6.1, good lighting and composition. Although, we've seen him in free study, people might give you lower votes. Personally I gave it a 5.

blue ribbon? 6.8
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Well done shot. A real mouse would have been a 10 and probably an 8+ score. Still should do well. 6.7

This looks like a vawendy shot. Somehow she gets away with things, like a black cat disappearing into a black background, and only dodging the area around the head of the cat to create a strange halo, that other photographers would get knocked down for. So with calculations for her black magic I'll guess DPCers will focus on the cuteness and give this a 6.2

Very fun image

I guess 5.619
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 04:37:21 AM
This is among a relatively small number of images that I think will score well. 6.3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 11:57:56 PM
It's that cat again! 6.1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 04:59:22 PM
I gave it a seven. Guessing a 6.1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 11:35:45 AM
Fun and nicely executed. I suspect it might do a little better than you think. I predict 6.01
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 06:31:12 AM
Cute mouse. Nice still life in the front. The black cat is really great! 6.3251
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 08:01:18 PM
It's a cute shot but I'd guess a little lower, say, 5.67.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 04:00:18 AM
such cute models! And a nice idea too. But it's hard to look at because the black fur doesn't stand out from the background. 6 from me and I predict 5.82 just like your guess
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 11:31:44 PM
I will agree with your prediction of 5.8, cute shot, I have two Kitties and one looks exactly like this one, and she is really tough to photograph well, the black fur eats light and reflects very little. good exposure and lighting technique here. I will vote this a six. Good Luck!

Wonderful light, 6.40
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 06:48:43 PM
Stuffed mice are not all that tasty. Ask Lido; I'm sure he's eaten at least one LOL. Light is nice as always. That curl of chair on the right almost looks like it's coming out of his ear, though. Still think this will be higher than your guess: 6.07

02/05/2015 04:36:06 PM
The look in the cats eye is true to the story. Great colors and shot. 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 02:23:12 PM
yooo,,,,,, sneaky ,,, like this more than 5,82,,,, ends in 6,,,,,,

7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 01:45:08 PM
The story alone is worth a 6+. So I estimate your image to end at 6.45. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 01:19:46 PM
so....the cat is five and the mouse is two? since five ate two?
5.799
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 11:08:40 AM
Funny idea, but it misses some power in the shot. I think that shooting it from a different angle would make it better. MAybe a whole white plate with a small colored border. 5.4
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:40:00 AM
The resemblance (pose) between cat and mouse is astounding! That it IS a cat and mouse is hilarious. Love the rich colors.
Since I'm not sure DPC voters will respond to the humor, I predict a 5.8 as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 01:21:18 AM
Seven from me. I think your prediction is too pessimistic and that you will end up with 6.853
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 11:50:26 PM
Dinner I presume? Nice capture, wish my cats would be decent models.... I think this will do pretty well - 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 09:53:12 PM
Wonderful lighting and composition. He looks like he is ready to pounce. I think you underestimated this. I give it an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:04:44 PM
6.221 (I gave it a seven)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 05:37:52 PM
I voted before looking at titles, now commenting.

I know there are a lot of people that don't care for cat images, myself included. But the deputy and lighting of this is great. I gave you a 7.

My guess: 6.24
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 04:32:04 PM
I acutally had a 5 I upped it to a 7,
my actual guess will be a 5.8 and in the top 20
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 01:05:54 PM
In my DPC experience, stuffed animals bring down a score - perhaps a butterfly or real mouse would have made this well-photographed image ribbon material. 5.68
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 09:33:03 AM
Funny scene. The black cat in the dark background gives it a sense of disconnected eyes looking at the mouse. (Your other entry caught the eyes perfectly) i gave this one a six and predict a 6.3.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 05:11:34 AM
Love it! Very creative and funny shot. I think you have really underestimated this. I estimate the final score to be 7.1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 08:32:18 PM
I'm pretty sure this is Mo. I would imagine your guess is a little low and predict in the sixes. I like the concept of the mouse on the plate, but would have tried to use a representation that wasn't a stuffed toy, which is where I think the fine art component of this extremely well lit, wonderfully processed image is let down. 6.24
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 07:16:03 PM
Moriarty would disapprove your guess. So did I
Forgot to add my . erased as per challenge ruling

My guess: 6.82

Hello, I voted a few days ago, now returning for comments. I think that you estimated your score well, I gave you a six and I predict that you will finish at 5,7854
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 01:21:41 PM
Typically chotchkies don't score very well BUT that sinister look of the cat more than makes up for it.
My guess is 6.33.

This photograph talk by itself. Wow. For me 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2015 07:20:39 PM
It is a pity the cat is black. a few white racing stripes painted along his head would help !!! Ha Ha not serious!! 8
would love to know how this image goes.I had a black on black in "Oil" its at 4.5
yours is much better

Love the look the cat is giving that stuffed mouse. Lighting is excellent. I really enjoy this image, so I have to give you much higher than you score yourself.

7.2 Really finely done. What a wonderful children's book illustration this would make. The lighting is terrific, with the highlit mouse on the plate and the black cat emerging from the darkness.

Not until I opened the thumbnail did I realize the black hunter lurking...
Beautifully lit. Everything important sharp as a tack. Effective composition. Fun story unfolding. Earns more than 5.82 from me!

Looks like a tigerpaw up there grabbing the cat, Wendy...
