Beautiful piece, the focus is perfect and I'm really appreciating the soft glow (it almost reminds me of a baby's room, or nursery), the orange of the cats fur really contrasts with the blue of the blanket behind her, which enlightens your eyes. In most pictures, hands in such a position would hinder the effectiveness of a photo, but here, they really show the delicacy of the kitten. My only concern is the ring on the lower hand, and dark blue in the upper right corner. The ring seems a bit out of place in the picture (it is a hard metal after all, and everything else seems so soft)! And the dark blue seems to be a tad bit too heavy.
First thing I said when I seen this: 'OMG ITS SOOOO CUTE!' :3.... Okay Im going to start now...
Vision- What I noticed when I first looked at this picture, was defiantly the kittens eyes! They really stood out! I think that it is because the kitten's eyes are next to the blue pattern in the blanket, I can tell that it was the main target of the watcher. And the blue and orange really stand out! Good job!
Originality- Well, we all know that kittens are EVERYWHERE on the internet, and that it why I gave the originality such a low mark. It has nothing to do with the way the picture is. But there is just so many kitten pictures out there...
Technique- (going back to the eye) I really love how the kitten's eye and the fabric work with each other
Impact- Overall I love the impact that this picture gives people, for me I got a smile out of it! And I couldn't help but look at this cute kitty <3
Overall great job! I really love the way it came out! And I can't wait for another from you!
