I can see that I'll probably be slammed for thinking outside the square on this one, because its not your typical "Perspective" shot. But I like the photo anyway.

It wasn't easy getting one of my models to co-operate,(guess which one), but we got there in the end.

I was sure there were going ot be many more pics like this. Was thinkin of doing something similar myself. Didn't have the time, but found something along the same lines. Great job, though I agree the background i stoo busy.

i didn't vote for this challenge, but i'll say that i find the background too busy. it detracts from what's going on...

i'd probably like it better if the model looked frightened of the giant cat... cowering in fear, or something...

i liked your line of thinking, though...

8 - For me this was the type of perspective "to create a dramatic effect" that I was looking for when I voted. I liked the perspective and the colors mostly. Criticism; In my opinion, the cat made this shot, including the colors in the fur, which complemented the background, but the woman in the shot detracted, mostly because of what she is wearing, hair, posture and 'view'. If she had been 'blurred/softened' more (if possible), more 'neutral clothing/styling' or less 'prominent' (though the 'illusion' may not have worked then) may have made it a better picture in my opinion. Also the 'dramatic effect' of the cat and its 'size' would have been enhanced. Perhaps just a sharper angle with the cat taking up more frame, not sure. I thought it met the Challenge well, had humor, was different and with a few tweaks, had great potential.
