Nikita my bengal surveying her kingdom from the top of her ladder.

Post processing minimal. Curves and a very slight saturation boost, unsharp mask after resizing. Would have been legal in basic editing.

8 - Very nice. Like the perspective. The 'smooth' finish to this works well, in my opinion. Perhaps a little more width and the background more subtle, to let the cat dominate more, but minor. Could just be visual, but looks like it needs a nudge rotate up on the left to 'straighten' - maybe.

OMG, what a beautiful cat. I hope you let us know the breed. This is a great shot using natural light. Love it!

Cats do like to think they're "ruler of the universe! Your picture captures that arrogance well! :)

apt title. Lovely, fuzzy portrait of nobility. Those whiskers look like the Royale Moustache, not to mention the eyebrows! 8

Nikita, is that you?? Great angle and lighting, especially the eyes and the sheen on her fur. Can't decide if I like the leading lines in the background or if the red is a little too distracting. 8.
