i posted this in the world of nature section but posting again in the critique section here to get more precise C&C.
i found this lil kitten sitting quite comfortably under that large ornamental pot. he was simply too irresistible for me not to capture that moment. on the onset it seems that the large pot is the focus of the picture. but when the viewer looks, he is immediately drawn to the kitty under it hiding in the shadows. in the original photo, the pot was red. i wanted to simplify it and gave less focus and as such the sepia tone treatment.
i pp-ed the photo to give that sentimental broody look. the kitten had the most soulful eyes. you just had to wonder what was in his mind. the pp i believe gives a dream like state to the picture.
personally i like the juxtaposition of the pot, the wooden bench, the 2 chairs and of course the kitty in it. the pot, bench and chairs give a semblance of structure. what makes the pic interesting i believe is the breaking of that structure by the presence of the cat.
im looking out for c&c esp wrt to composition, framing, pp, write up and so on. my first post in here. pls give as much comments as possible. pls be sharp but fair.
