Great shot! The light is well-controlled, and focus is good.

Fantastic shot, the texture on the wood has come out so well.

Lovely shot, and great focus. Looking at it I would be tempted to experiment with a landscape crop, just keeping the cat, the shadowed area, and part of the wood.

Thanks very much for your comments. Thoughton, yes I've been pontificating on that shot all day, as one does. I have a landscape version of that shot:




as well as a second one with better focus on the door to the left of the cat, but not so good on the cat.




And a closer version of each. Here's the first:




I dunno.

Adrian,
The portrait shot for me, and then 1 & 3 of the landscape shots. A good series.

Yes, number 3 of the landscape series is what I had in mind. I prefer it this way - I don't think the grass at the bottom and the metal strap at the top added much to the original photo.
