Amazing capture Phil, added to my favs and congrats on your top 10. Love the DOF and clarity in the fur on your fuzzy faced friend :-) Almost looks like she is drewling...had a cat that did that and made a major mess when he purred. Cheers sir...

Incredible shot! Scored an 8 with me in a VERY tough challenge! Amazing clarity/DOF and excellent use of selective desat. Well done!

Another winner-kitty shot! The toning feels so "real", like she really is that shade, and the partial desat is judiciously done.

Great image love the expression

Striking eyes, wonderful detail and the selective desat works very very well. Has a great portriat feel to it and the angle is sharp. Bumping up to 8.

7 - Very nice, but is a little odd as a result of the pp/toning - mainly because of the black around the eyes - yet still works in an odd way, in my opinion. Like to have seen it more subtle, but may look just as you intended. The cat's left eye, just a little too much and detracts and distracts the more I look at this - again, in my opinion.

One of my favorite shots in the challenge. Gorgeous cat and I love how the eyes stand out. Uniquely angled shot and great DOF.

Oooh! This is good! I really like the silvers - and then the splash of irridescent yellow in it's eyes!

I've come back to this a zillion times. Really great focus. I like the tilt of the head and the slightly open mouth. Nice work. 8

Wow...reminds me of magnetic9999's liquid eyes pic. Excellent! :)

Excellent selective desaturation and focus in this shot. I think the composition works very well and I like the direct stare into the camera from the cat.
