A stunning image which has a well handled exposure. Depth of colour in the eyes is spot on, very well done.

Welcome to ePHOTOzine
A very competent photograph of a beautiful cat. Focus is spot on. I find the composition very pleasing. I don't know if you planned it so, the eyes and nose are in just perfect positions within the frame.
I find the white line round the photo just a touch distracting.
This is posted in the critique gallery. It is useful to see camera settings, they normally show in the details.
I can't suggest any improvement, keep on clicking,
regards
Ian

A splendid capture that speaks very well of your intended purpose, particularly as the very fine hair details have a way of placing the emphasis on the eyes. Furthermore it is also the contrast between the eye colour and the rest of the shot that make it significant. Difficult to say anything more without the camera settings, but overall this is a great shot. Your frame has its place here, though one can always argue about the type of frame. Still, there isn't much more to say except congratulations. Cheers,
Paul

Welcome to the site, I hope you enjoy it here!
I'm not a huge fan of selective colour, I reckon it needs to genuinely enhance an image rather than simply say 'Look what I can do...' This works for me though, it's quite subtle and really does convey the calculating intensity of the cat's eyes. (Every moggy is a mighty hunter in its heart of hearts... Wink )
Focus is spot on. As mentioned above, if you would like detailed critique and advice it would help if you showed your settings - they are not showing up automatically here but you can easily add them manually. Just click on Options under the photo, then select Edit, and open Exif - you can fill in the details and then Save.

Rather well done. Super quality and a tight crop as necessary. Even forgive your slightly ornate framing, not too distracting at all.

Put your exposure info etc. In. It is useful for others on the site to see what you have done. It helps everyones learning curve.
