This is a picture of one of my cats. He was basking on our driveways when I got this one--he is very photogenic! He wasn't what I was looking for though... i was rather hoping to get a shot of a bird or something, but Texas summers are not very welcoming for those creatures! critique is always welcome!

It's a nice shot,
I would have like to see more of the cat including the tail, but it has got a great eye contact and I like that. Good work. IB

He's gorgeous, a lovely colour with wonderful green eyes!

I think I agree with 'Chinga' about having the whole cat in frame, but that is a minor point. He is just a little on the soft side, this could be because you were in a little bit of a hurry and hadn't got the camera completely still (Don't forget to keep still after you press the shutter - just for a second or two).

As for nature - you will usually find it near food or water (and as far away from cats as possible!). If your garden doesn't have water, just a shallow bowl will attract birds looking for a drink or bath (It will need to be far enough from bushes to stop the cat ambushing them and near enough to bushes for the birds to escape from other dangers). Smile

I lovely shot, which has already been dwelled over. Much to think about, and hopefully learn from

Well, right now water does not seem to be existent where i live so I'm sure that's part of the problem. However, I will probably try that idea with the water bowl! And yes, i probably did move the camera a bit on accident, though I think I could fix the majority of the issue by sharpening the image... either way, thank you!

I've been getting that a lot, so I ought to try it. I personally enjoy close ups, but I'll have to experiment with the full body then... Thank you!
