Autumn Eyes by Sarah-BK Autumn Eyes by Sarah-BK
Thoughts
Our University kittens are growing! :meow: Nonetheless they remain just as adorable and photogenic :P This one (he/she needs a name!) still gives me the same stare when I take pics of him/her! :giggle:

Edit: Alright so many postulate this is actually a female because of her particular colour (Tortoiseshell) which is apparently expressed as so because of the fact that females have XX chromosomes and the genes encoding this particular coat colour requires two X chromosomes. Thank you all for refreshing my memory ;)


Equipment
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
Post-processing in Adobe Photoshop CS5

You did really well with capturing the emotion of the cat and his fur detail come out really clear as well. That being said I would recommend a faster shudder sped to darken the photo just a half step becasue you have a cat who has a lot of black in his fur and to much light makes the black begin to look grey. As well as that the lower left of the table or ledge he/she is on is little over exposed as is the the portion right behind the cats bum. That being said I think this is a really nice photo and you did a good job with it. Keep up the good work :)

I really admire the lighting of the photograph and i love how the eyes of the cat pop out. I wonder how you got this little one to stay still for this picture? Her fur pattern is simple one of a kind. I also love how the cat is the focal point in the photo while the background is blurred, as if she owns the center of the photograph. The background is a little too blurry, but other than that, a very well generated picture. On an unrelated topic, this cat is one of the most beautiful tortoiseshell cats I've ever seen.

This cat is absolutely adorable! I love the set-up of the photo and how the kitten is staring at us. :heart: You did great capturing this, and your post-processing seems excellent. The quality is crisp and the bokeh in the background suits the frame well. I also like how your watermark is almost invisible, but it's still there. Truly a great picture. :)

Also, if you need a name, all I can think about is "Two-Face" because of obvious reasons. God, this cat is just beautiful. :love:
