I was surprised that this shooting went so well as our cat is normally very shy and does what she wants. But I set up a box (On the table that she likes to sit on). Picked her up and put her there & was amazed that she sat & did what I wanted her to. I got about 10 good photos in various poses.
In this photo I had the kicker off as I was getting a bit of flair in the photo.
Here are some out-takes' . substr('//www.peterhansenfoto.de/singapore/galleries/Sessions/2009/02%20February/06%20Pets/2295Pets_sm.jpg', strrpos('//www.peterhansenfoto.de/singapore/galleries/Sessions/2009/02%20February/06%20Pets/2295Pets_sm.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This was with the kicker on

LOL ROTF at your title. I can just see it in his/her face. Oh...nice lighting and capture. Background works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a stunning cat. She is looking so magestic, with intense eyes that say "feed me'.

The pose is so classical, only thing i would have to say is that her tail looks like it is not attached to her body.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2009 10:04:04 PM
wow, this is a stunner. a 9 for me. if the tail weren't clipped it would have to be a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2009 09:55:16 PM
Wow. The eyes are powerful on this one. Very sharp and I love the pose. The only minor critique I can think of (not effecting my vote) is the small area/line on the right side between the red and the wall draws my eyes to it just a bit. Like I said, no effect on the score, just an observation. Nice shot.

Who said cats don't have personality. What a face!

02/11/2009 01:30:52 PM
I hope to see outtakes from this - what a fun cat!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2009 10:14:29 AM
That pose is great and the expression makes me smile :-) I'm not a fan of the color of whatever s/he's sitting on with the rest of the colors in the shot; since this is Basic I'd try a hue shift and desaturate some to more closely match the wall.
