[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Jackson our 2-yearold silver Burmese cat. She (yes, she) runs our house, always trying to bring in new friends to play with - e.g. rats, mice, skinks, birds of all shapes and sizes (even a seagull), monarch butterflies, etc. But for all her bad habits, we still love her!!

Cats are cats, the world over aren't they! the cat who owned me prior to my current boss was an avid fisherman!

Often he'd turn up at the back door with a Koi carp wriggling madly in his mouth, we just have to grin and bear it!

I really like the elevated pose you've got here, she looks so 'superior', which of course she is....!

I love the pose of the cat, really kings pose:-)
Photo is great, sharp with nice backgroung wich gives a nice accent on the casts body line.
Good compo.

Having been owned by two cats in my lifetime, I have learned that a cat is going to be a cat! We love them despite that fact!
I love your POV in taking this portrait of Jakson. He looks like a lion! I cringed at your note of "gifts" he has brought to you, but he is a cat. It was wonderful that the sky was grey that day, or did you do some magic in PP? Either way, it is a wonderful blend for the colors of Jackson. Excellent photo....:O)

It's in their nature!! They do the same all over the world. I like the POV you used, makes her more majestic, and her look is almost the one of a queen. Great composition with the grey sky in the background

King or Queen ?
Beautiful animal and your shot contributes to show her majesty !

hello janice i hope Jackson
enjoyed the flash ,o)
beautifull cat and sees so proud
well done

Hello Janice.
Me gusta mucho esta foto. El punto de vista bajo ayuda a enfatizar el carácter autosuficiente de los gatos.
El fondo es el adecuado (parece una prolongación de la piel del gato).
Muy bien hecho.
Gracias por tus comentarios

Hello Janice.
I like much this photo. The point of view under aid to emphasize the self-sufficient character of the cats. The bottom is the adapted one (it seems an prolongation of the skin of the cat). Done very well. Thanks for your commentaries

I feel sometimes, cat's imagine they are lion. And i confirm. Cat's imagine the world is theyre propriety. Even you :oD We have the feeling he his just waiting u take the picture because HE need it. Nice! Very nice!

It is a great composition, it seem to be so big. Great. Well done.


This is excellent - at first I thought it was a cougar, the face is very like one. Excellent POV on this shot, Janice.


Wonderful, shows her personality !

She's obviously got a strong personality, Janice. And your low PoV emphasizes that very well. It would have been nicer if you had taken this against a clear blue sky, I think... But on the other hand, the dark sky blends in nicely with the colour of her fur. TFS.

I love the colors here - I think the silver sky and the silver tones in the faded wood go very well with the silver Burmese! Jackson appears to have a contented smile - she looks very sweet. Nice angle to take the picture. A nit-pick = I see a little noise in the cloud (perhaps try Neat Image - I just downloaded the free demo version).

What a buddy?....Look at this attitude...!
Jackson ( nice name for a female cat ) is surely the Queen of yoour house and I think she knows it too!
Nice photo, good composition.
Beautifull cat!

Janice, great photo with a great perspective. When I saw the thumnail, I thought that, on PhotoShop, you had put her on a building. Now I realized it's not what happened.

She's a good model, and this photo has a great POV.

YESSS! We are the kings of the world. Cat is also a man, but in fur.

And why can't a Girl be King?? She so obviously is! Love the POV and the colors and textures in the fence, they contrast so nicely with the shiny texture of the leaves. Maybe that's why I like cats so much...their "sassy" attitude!
Well done!

Nice effect Jancie. Emphasises the superiority that Jackson obviously believes that she has!

hi janice,
she really looks like Queen:-)the colors good,the symmetry in the pic as well.a happy long life with Jackson and your family.

Hi Jancie - Quite a king size cat you share with us here - I like the fine pose you got her in - quite majestic indeed.
By the way am I a "cat person" myself ;-) thanks for sharing.

Hi Janice
Oh Jackson seems to have a little "cattitude" happening. She looks so proud looking down at you. She looks like she saying...." Just come up and try to get me down" I think she is smiling. I did a little workshop, I hope you like it.
Thanks for sharing Jackson
