Hi Brandon, welcome to EPZ! Smile

This is a lovely initial upload, the colours and details you've caught are brilliant. You've managed to focus on the bauble brilliantly.

As for capturing your cat's eyes. Good lighting is essential as you can't use flash (it would hurt!). Make sure the cat is relaxed and if possible your camera is on a firm surface (to prevent movement blur). If you can hold the cat's interest then it will keep its eyes open for you. Of course it will all depend on which lens you use, as to how close you get to it.

Most of all practise! Wink
