Of course the doggone cat will play with every accessible Christmas light in the house until I set up a bunch of lights that I WANT him to play with for a picture. I had visions of a shot like this involving a Santa hat, but after an hour or so of effort, it was obvious that I should just be happy with what I've gotten.

Oh this is awesome! That cat just radiates personality! I love the clean white surroundings -- gives it such a professional portrait look!

I like this shot because it has some context... shots on a plain white background are good sometimes but sometimes they look like they are making the subject float and that can be visually confusing.

5 - Nice, but wonder about a variation in the framing, perhaps a little more height/square frame and the cat more strategically placed within it. Also, a much sharper perspective/angle may have allowed the cat to be more dominant and given this a little extra.

Were other more animated photos? The facial expression says I'm not interested now.
