Hello,

I thought that I should really fill one of these out because I fell in love with this photo. :)

In terms of originality, it's a fairly normal shot, but I gave you three stars because I still like it. Having the kitten (Ariel I think you said) tilt her head to the side adds more feeling to the photo than it would have if she was facing the camera head on. I also like that the hand is in the background of the shot. It just give the photo another layer without taking away from the focus of the image.

Techinque, I rate you four and a half stars because I really like the way that you've balanced the colours. They are soft and subtle which I think helps to add a level of warmth and comfort to the picture. It also draws a stark contrast to the kitten's eyes, which are the focus of the shot (to me at least:) ). It could just be my eyes (or lack of sleep :P ) but it seems to me that the edges are slightly blurred so that the veiwer's eyes are drawn immediately to the kitten's face.

The impact, I rate this image five stars, because, in truth, the end result is stunning. The colours, layers and even just the kitten itself combine really well to provide a beautiful end result.

Overall, well done. I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future (and hopefully more of this little treasure :) ).

Okay, yeah, I LOVE this picture. I love cats and this just completely melts my heart. It definitely positively impacts any and all animal lovers. As soon as I saw this, my heart stopped and I was all "AAAAWWWWWW!!!!!!" You really captured the cuteness of kittens. It looks so breath takingly innocent and pure. The little paws huddled together on the chest area makes it look vulnerable and scared, and really it should be because it's so small in such a big, big world. And the eyes. I love the eyes. You chose the best cat, because the coloring is just amazing. Puppy eyes? I think not. More like kitten eyes. THOSE are the ones you have to watch for.

A more appropriate title isn't possible.

Precious.

I like how the bluish eyes are completely surrounded by warm colors, there's nothing to distract from them. :3
