Your Photo: Our Critique

This image was submitted by Lars Larson, taken with a Nikon D80, ISO 800, f/4, 3 seconds. This is a basic cat photo. Unfortunately the colors are flat and the crop is off. Consider cropping less tightly on the left side of the frame, I do appreciate that the cat is not dead center.

This image was submitted by Lars Larson, taken with a Nikon D80, ISO 800, f/4, 3 seconds. This is a basic cat photo. Unfortunately the colors are flat and the crop is off.  Consider cropping less tightly on the left side of the frame, I do appreciate that the cat is not dead center. Also the lightest part of the background begs for attention, drawing the view away from the cat.  With the photo being all about the cat, consider going vertical, including the body keeping the head in the upper third.  The main problem with this photo is that the background, even blurred out is hurting the image.
