Copper Eyes       ©2014 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       8th place, 75 points
1/200s, f2.5, ISO 800, 40mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted white balance, cropped, de-noised, sharpened, re-sized for posting.       Extra Info: I didn't have too many ideas for the challenge, so I decided to pick my cat as the subject and ran with it. I took quite a few shots and cropped them in many different ways, and this seemed to be the most effective in bringing out his beautiful copper eyes.

    Good DOF, focus, lighting. I would have cropped a bit more off the right side to remove the cleft, but that's just me. In my favs.

    Your subject does not appear to be enjoying the attention. Great shot, makes me laugh every time I view it.

    Cool eye but I feel a little too much is cut out by the edge.

    Excellent application of the topic for good effect. The vectors spreading from the right edge through the fir and whiskers focusing on the eye - and leaving the space on the left for one's imagination - make for a striking image.

    Never saw an one eye cat, only joking. I think you should have removed or cropped out the black spot IMO, otherwise, nice detail & lighting.

    I love this photo. It is technically very good as well as being so appealing and fitting the challenge.
