Well, this is both very dark and a picture of a cat, so I expect it to get a very poor score. Even so, I really like it, so I'm gonna enter it!

Nice DOF for this feline image. I'd like to see this pure black/white.

Very cool idea. I think the blurry leg(?) detracts more than it adds, however.

I think this would be far more dramatic and convincing if we didn't see the kitty's forleg in the foreground. Including the leg takes away from the mystery of the photo.

This is really cool. I think what will hurt you is the paw stretched out at the bottom of the image. I like the detail of each individual whisker!

I was thinking of shooting something like this, you did well, wish the front leg wasn't so blurred..
