Great portrait for it tells me more about the lady than just what she looks like.

Love it! This is exactly the 'look' I am trying to 'nail'. With this type of subject, I find the post-production used so very complimentary.

Wonderful atmospheric shot, love the cat.
A wonderful image, love the expression on the cats face

Have to come back to this -

Her vulnerable body language and oh! that facial expression resigned but complete with it's aeon's of pain.....

The protective intensity of the cat....... (unusual)

+ the traditional guardians in the background, less concerned but more measured & doubtless willing and able -

All contribute to a timeless picture -

Protect it!!

I Love it! ..........wouldn't ya know! ....... Smile -

a haunting image that certainly warrants the recognition its received here. the combination of the animals is a bonus but the womams expression is what makes it along with the mooted colours almost super realistic painting style. her position in relation to the bacground is key also as is the background. i can see this in the national portrait gallery portrait photo competition. it has the strange thought provoking qualities that suggest it would do well.

it immediately gets my award for being one of the best photographs that this site has seen for a very long time.
