My Bengal Cat Nikita being cute. Really for this challenge what else was I going to photograph? :)

It took me quite a while to get this shot. I think I took around 250 shots in just one session. It was hard to choose which one to submit but I love the red feathers and her expression in this one.

I would have cropped much more tightly from the left.

The lighting on the cat is beautiful. I think the red strip and background detract a bit. A bigger crop might help.

The photo is a little blurry and I find the right corner distracting. I know cat shots get hit hard around here. Maybe try playing with the cat in an area without distracting elements and get a tighter crop. Maybe try playing with the toy just off camera to try and get a shot of the cat looking interested with out seeing the toy. Just my opinion, I hope you found it somewhat helpful

Lol. Now, this is a cooperative subject to allow such a nice capture.

The white object in the bottom right corner distracts me a bit. The photo as a whole seems a touch blurry, but it's still by far one of the best shots of the challenge. Love the colors. Beautiful cat.

That is one cool looking cat! A little faster shutter speed would have froze the cat's paw and whiskers (which are a little blurred). Very good color and focus on the body and legs of the cat. The red door/cabinet in the background pulls the viewers attention away unneedlessly and probably should have been cropped out. All JMO of course. Good luck in the challenge.

tighter crop maybe. the red window in the back ground is distracting from the cute kitty.

Lovely cat and portriat of it, but sure has lots of unnecessary "dead" space -- needs to be cropped much tighter.

Nice but looks slightly saturated. Also I think tight cropping may have worked better.

I would like this better with the black and orange from the other room cropped out.
