[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Obviously going for the cuteness factor here, with a little farm kitten. I love shooting at shallow depth of field, although I start suspecting that my lens suffers from a bit of front focus. There is not much else to be said here, so the note will have to stay short. In case you don't know, kittens are difficult to photograph, and a long lens helps an awful lot catching the impatient beasts.

Bravo Roland, bonne prise avec une belle définition. Je ne voudrai pas être la proie qu'il fixe!
Un moment décisif.


France :o)

so nice cat looking your camera
background and colours very good

Me gusta, es una excelente foto.
Muy bueno el juego con la profundidad de campo, los colores son realmente magnificos.
Hiciste un buen disparo a este gatito "inquieto"... Felicidades!!

Hello Roland!
Lovely kitten, great colours and light!
Very nice perspective!
Perfect focus!
Best regards!

Hello roland,
really cute, excellent sharpness and nice shallow depth of field, lovely natural colors and good light.

I'm no great fan of pet shots generally speaking, but this one is great. Poster-quality, you'd sell this one. Front focus not an issue, the DOF and bokeh are fantastic, use of available light is great, and composition spot-on. The cat's
'pose' and particularly the elevated tail is great!

Hi Roland
Very cute kitten, great focused look on his/her face.
Well captured!Nice lighting and shallow DOF.


Hi Roland,
Belle photo de ce petit chat, excellent cliché et détails, couleurs magnifiques et composition,,
belle netteté et présentation,

Hi Roland,

Your kitten is similar in coloring to a Tuxedo cat who shared our home for 10+ years. His name was Sammi. Perhaps, sometime, I'll post a shot of him.

You're correct, trying to take a picture of a kitten is not an easy thing to do. They seem to want to do everything at the same time. Your photo is quite cute indeed, and very well done. The focusing is great at the front, and nothing else matters. Excellent colors also. I enjoyed viewing it a lot. TFS.


Sooooo cute, Roland,
I love this cat so much, what a lovely moment to have this nice one in this pose in front of your camera. Also a very good low POV, excellent work, thanks.
Your name sounds german?!?

Many things I appreciatte in this photo.
The shallow depht of field, very precise for the picture (I even suspect a little pp helped here).
The light just perfect, some part a little darker, but the wriskles (bigotes) perfectly outstanding.
The color of cat`s nose, mathches the small flowers.
Very impressive,
