[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was trying to get a macro-shot of my cat Micky, but he kept sniffing at the lens making me impossible to get the shot I wanted, so I made this. And when I saw it on my computer screen I really had to laugh about it, hope you will to

Hello Kristy,

Cats are so curious!
Very funny shot. ^^


Buen encuadre
precioso retrato

HI Kristy,
I love this shot - excellent and funny.
It's like looking through a fisheye - wonderful - I like the impressive eyes and she's looking so "cool", thanks

lol, well done Kristy, I like the little distortion effect in the picture. It increases the curiousity in the eyes of your cat :)

very good close up portrait of the kitty kristy :)
he doesn't look too happy :P but the photo is great, excellent colors and sharpness

points later :) all out

I hope you don't mind I added your photo to my group theme - A Window To A Pet's Soul

this is a great shot kristy, really crisp and clear. you can see all the details in your cat's face! for a funnier effect, take one step back next time, so you get the cat's body in the frame too. It looks funny because the head will be really big and the body will be tiny :)

Hi Kristy,

That's a pure pleasure to watch! My own cat has given me some really nice shots as well. They're lovely, aren't they? :)

These kinds of close-up shots can often be seen in postcards. You did a good job :)

Best Regards,

great perspective! very cute!
