like the way u used a black backgrnd to tone with the black cat that the china thing is standing on,
I thnk the china thing gets in the way, maybe try a white ground next time without the china thing.
Neat whiskers.

I have to be honest, I have no idea what this is. I'm going to assume that it's something wierd that took alot of "Courage" to shoot :) I do like the lighting and the clearness of the subject. Really... very interesting subject.

Black background works well and the lighting accentuates the statue perfect

The images that always suffer due to lack of comments are the ones that are right in the middle ground. Everyone comments on the awesome shots. Some comment on the bad shots. But the middle ones, very few people say anything. So here I am to explain why I voted a 5:

I can't seem to figure out what I'm looking at. I think it is some kind of glass figurine. Not that it is necessary to understand what the image is on a macro! But the rest of the image is just so... smooth (smooth pastel and smooth black) there there is nothing for my eye to land on except this "non-descript, don't know what it is, object".

So it's neither a bad shot, nor one that stands out from the crowd... and that's why I ended up giving it a 5. Hope this helps.
