Mescalamba: Very nice pic. :)
Thank you for your comment! :)
RuthC: Congratulations, Nik2, on achieving one of the top places in this challenge. This is a delightful picture, and I wouldn't be surprised if gnomes or elves suddenly appeared! You have captured the atmosphere of the forest beautifully. Ruth :-)
Thank you, Ruth, for interesting comparisons fabulous and interest in the work!
TB Rich: Love this guys face! Tough nut for sure and never has a cat looked so bad-ass! :)Great capture.
Thank you for your attention to this work!
jerrith: I voted 0.5 because there's no comment about setup etc... as the host requested.
Oh, and all the shooting can be seen under overs ekzif, that is enough for any photographer to understand everything about the shooting conditions.
If you are is more important than formal rules, not the dignity of work itself, vote as you wish ...
Solar Ben: Great picture.
Thank you for your interest and kind words.
hsps2: Just the right background and color tone - makes those old cars special. Well done!
Thank you for your comment!
Razgriz: Nice perspective;)
Steve Throndson: I love that expression! Kitty looks very 'grumpy'.
Thank you for your comment, I agree with you!
elemenoP: This cat is hilarious and should be photographed OFTEN.
If it was my cat ...
thanasaki: Excellent shot ! Congratulations
Thank you for your comments and interest in the work!
activa: I love this composition. A little cropping on left would have made it tighter (IMHO)
Thank you for your opinion, when cutting violated the aspect ratio is not good for the image.
santamonica812: This is a spectacular capture. To me eye, there's nothing especially tender or loving about the cats' interaction. So, for this challenge, it does not move me too much. But, just as a photograph, I *love* it. I wonder how it would look as a B & W image as well.
And for me, the same story is not particularly interesting, and b \ w has the right to life ...
RogerLittle: Pitiful sight. If this were my street, and I came out one morning and saw this butchery, I'd be depressed.
I am experiencing the same feelings as you, though I live and not on this street.
RuthC: These seagulls think they are ravens....
Competition rules are met, and let the seagulls think they crow ...
ConanFuji: I like it too! It's quite amazing seeing him paint in the open (without gloves). My fingers would have stiffened.
Thank you for your attention to this work! It was not very cold, but my fingers would freeze too, but not in it, it's Santa Claus!
Jen003: Love what you have captured here - great shot. Congrat's on 1st. Jen
Thank you very much, very glad you liked the work!
RogerLittle: Isn't that where Baba Yaga lives?
This is the house that Baba Yaga takes a forest of ghosts ...
The Mick: That's a pretty cool lookin' cat. The face has so much character. ;o)
Thank you for your opinion, the cat is really demonic, with character ...
