For Cat Lovers out there by juniorimaginations For Cat Lovers out there by juniorimaginations
so for all the cat lovers out there I decided to post this picture up because i think its funny and it shows how fierce the wild cats are around my house. always getting into fights with dogs lol

also i would like to have some critque about this picture or advice basically on how to improve this picture, this was an okay picture with a very low f stop, was wondering if this would have looked better with a higher f stop, or does the blur really bring out the emotion of the picture

***If you like a print of my work, please message me and I will remove my own personal watermark on my photography work and re-upload the picture for you to buy the print***

I think, since the cat in the center is the main focus of the picture the blurred out "background" images balances the picture so it is not "heavy" or overwhelming in composition. The fact that you can still see the pose of the dog and other cat (dog is in "OH! CAT! CHASE CAT!" mode and the other cat is in "RAWR GET AWAY" mode) give meaning to the cat in focus. It is humorous and at the same time the focus cat gives off a pensive mood, like wondering "whats up with these two with all the fussing!" ^_^ I really like how you incorporate a mood in your pictures and at the same time a sort of "story" to it. But thats just me... > 3 <

(I don't really know much about what qualifies as a good picture, so the stars may be kind of irrelevant)
I think the focus being on the cat and thebakground being blurred put the viewer in the position of the cat and helps them see that this photo is from the cat's perspective. While the background is blurred, you can still make out the actions of the dog and the other cat, which give the picture a bit of a story, so you can see how a day in the life of this cat might be like. It displays the personalities of the different animals- the dog is playful and intimidating, the cats are reserved, on guard, slightly fearful, but at the same time not freaked out enough to run or hide.
The way the camera is positioned so that the cats are both looking at the dog shows that the dog is the subject of their attention.
Overall a pretty amazing photo!

I would have wanted the maximum depth of field possible for this, myself. You have Photoshop, so there are things that can be done. Under 'exposure' there is a slider called 'gamma'. It's a bit like 'contrast' and increasing it with make the picture look paler and may bring out some shadow detail 'Exp[osure' could be increaseda little as well. It still won't look right after that and so the next step would be a cautious use of 'saturation', not more than a 15 points increase. After that it might be possible to sharpen things alittle. Use 'smart shappen' and stop when you can see processing artifacts start to become apparent. That's most of what I can think of...

Ha nice shot! What I love about this picture is that the two cats look exactly like my cats, and my friend has a staffy with markings very similar to the dog.
