I like the shot, (my cat has the same patterning) but i would tone down the sharpness just a hair.

Really great shot here, the perspective and composition are everything here really. I love the black in there fur aswell, it adds a darkness to the whole thing, along with the thick border which i normally don't like but feel it works well in this one.
Nice work.

Very nice shot. I love the choice of colors and the way they put the cat in its place as a hunter. (camo-effect). The cats gaze is also amazing, and really adds to this hunter by nature theme that i was talking about.

Gace you an 8, I loved the picture and the colors, the border I thought was a little distracting

There were too many entries to leave a LOT of comments. I voted yours an 8. Technicals are all there, it fit the challenge well. Not too terribly fond of the frame though.

Was this shallow DOF or Gaussian Blur?

Torties & Calicos are such characters! This angle is great!

Looks unnaturally blurred around the cats face, and I don't know that I would have chosen to add any blur to the frame either. I do like the cats intent stare and colorings... matches well with the background.

4 - Good potential. Criticism; if there was more cat, less frame and possibly even more height (to allow for more cat & impact at this size), make this even better in my opinion. More whiskers too would likely have given this something extra, and more 'balance' too, likely.

Just because I have a similar cat (erie actually)
