Cat Photo Competition 4 2018 : Entry Number 11

Judges Comment

This is such a fabulous image and an instant favorite. The shallow depth-of-field gives the background such a soft, almost sweeping feel, along with the receding line of the rail, tunnels our vision immediately to this incredible cat. I think that a little definition in the cat - just a hint of his nose - might make it even stronger, so that he doesn't look like a black hole with eyes. But otherwise, this is a tremendous image with great vision and execution. Bravo! ~ illona

Photographers Comment

Thanks for this First Prize. This picture was taken at Houtong (Cat Village in Taiwan) on August 2018. He was aware that I knelt in front of him for a while. Finally, He gave me three seconds to frame this one.
