yep, the whites on the front are a bit blown out, but this is a nice shot. I like the two tone eyes effect.

does this cat have two different colored eyes or is it the lighting? cool eyes if they're different!

This is my second go-around =) - I'm not used to seeing cats with two different colored eyes... I think that looks a little distracting because it looks very unnatural. Also, I would have liked to have seen it cropped a little differently... too much open space to the left of your kitty. Otherwise, I really like it.

I really hope those eyes are naturally two different colors. I'm assuming they are. I've seen cats (and people) like that and it's really cool.
