purr

By Milla
My other half with our gorgeous kitty. Taken couple of years ago, needed to put some PS work into this to get the final effect.
Please, let me know if there is anything wrong with this, I'm simply unable to any objective critique, for obvious reason Smile Got some more shots of Bart from that time, we'll see if you like any of them.

Thank you so much for your time.

The BW conversion and lighting are very good indeed, as is the composition with the eye staring out of the image. I think the only weak point is kitty's feet visible at the bottom of the image. They clutter the shot a little too much IMO. Maybe better if kitty was under a sheet with only the head showing above the arm?

Cheers, people!
So kitty's feet did what they usually tend to do: were all over the place. Lesson learned, thank you very much for your comments and honest feedback, as always much appreciated.

Love the contrasts here, particularly the eyes; plus the artfully posed human form against all-over-the-place cat.

so unusual = but works really well, like your other half's eye open and the cats eyes closed

What a wonderful image, your kitty looks so content to be having a cuddle! Works well in B&W too!

like the mono....I can see what others say about kittys feet, but sometimes you see a shot and you just have to click....this seems to be one of those shots Smile
