"The phrase 'domestic cat' is an oxymoron."
(George Will). This quote gave me the idea for the challenge.

I added this to my faves, then checked all of them and noticed I'd added your sister's photo of this same cat last year.

Heh! Just the right amount of evil glare and bared claw to really give meaning to the oxymoron! Nicely done.

This photo beautifully and subtly captures the hidden ferocity of the cat, truly a visual version of oxymoron. Excellent fulfillment of the challenge.

This photo has been installed in my Galerie Nulle Part

Very nice! The cat looks wild and irritated. The eyes are intense and the claws showing are a great addition.

Okay, maybe being a cat person is skewing my judgement, but this is my favorite for this theme. Love the evil look and the menacing claw. Doesn't hurt that it's so well done technically, either. Kudos.

Gorgeous portrait. Killer eyes and those claws totally make the oxymoron :-)

Something more like black domestic tiger would have been more oximoron like ?
I really like the eyes... and the claws

The claws make this
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2010 08:58:52 AM
WOAH - look at those claws and that expression! LOL Is that a true oxymoron? Hmmm, I guess I'd leave that up for discussion but we can agree to disagree. :) Love the photo.
