Beautiful cat, and extremely beautiful portrait. I love the soft way she almost blends off into the bg to the right, while her face and whiskers stand out against it. The lighting is really nice.

This is so very pretty. What a beautiful baby. I love the blue eyes against her white fur.

An all white cat is so ghostly and dreamy. She's a beauty for sure.

Oh my god. just read your description and you said you "DOINKED" the white balance -that made me crack up!!! Adorable kitty by the way. Looks like she's got two different colored eyes...how beautiful.

Stunning cat portrait. Looks just like our now recently sadly deceased Benjamin.

Beautiful shot Jeb. To finish in the mid 6's with all those cat haters out there is wonderful! Reminds me of my first cat, Snowball.

Not a fan of cats, (at least little bity ones) but you've really captured the essence of this feline!

This is just beautiful! You've done an amazing job on the shot and her pose is so sweet.
WOW! Perfect lighting, detail, the color is perfect. Teach me how to do vignettes! Gorgeous kitty!!

Wow, the lighting on this one is superb along with the excellent pose. You can rarely go wrong with a blue/white combo. And the eyes matching the background propels this one. Good job Jeb.

Nice looking Kitty Jeb. and i realy like how you processed the photo, makes a very nice portrait. You should print it and hang it.

Very nice use of DOF and vignetting, Jeb. Congrats on your new 5th best score! But is "doinking" allowed in your state? ;)

Good going. Beautiful shot. And not easy to get the detail and still keep the fur a lovely white. Nice the way the background emphasizes the color of the eye.

Humm. I love the colors,I would like more eye contact, but maybe it works with the name of the photo. The use of light is wonderful. I will give it 8 if the eyes were up a little more I would say 10 I know how well cats take direction. LOL

How sweetly soft. Or should that be softly sweet? Either way, great shot!

A wonderful portrait. Regal describes this pose and beautiful cat perfectly.

Regal? I was thinking more "angelic". Though some would probably disagree, I like the soft, dark border.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2008 05:25:02 PM
Very nicely done. I like the effect you have going here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2008 09:51:17 AM
Regal indeed! ! ! !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2008 08:51:50 AM
Lovely softness to this, and the background nicely echoes the blue eye. Lighting is very nice. I would crop a bit tighter on the bottom where the chest falls away, or smooth down the sort of ruff under the chin so there's a smoother line to the body.

02/26/2008 03:36:23 PM
The lighting, focus, background are really good. It would be nice to get the other eye to show more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Regal indeed. Very well imagined and captured. Post processing is supurb. Hard to imagine a way to improve it IMHO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/25/2008 04:07:34 PM
Absolutely stunning.

edit: I keep coming back to this one. I can not raise the score, its already a 10. I guess I am hoping to figure out how to get my cat to pose like this.
