serious critique please...if you don't like it thats fine just tell me why
i like it
Its a good jon on tonal range and B&W conversion. I wouldn't have centered the cat, and would have used either a polarizer or moved to a different angle to avoid the reflections in the window
the main subject is the flower pot...even if there were no reflections i don't think the cat is as interesting as the surrounding window/flower pot...i think i need to get another polarizer (sold the other one because i got rid of the lens it fit on)
I think it's a good shot, however, the cat and reflection are the only dislikes from me.
Without both, it'd be a lot better IMO. But nevertheless, not bad at all!
WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THIS AN 8/10?
edit: whoops i thought I was logged on my ae..
Clean the glass so you can see through/reflections more cleanly
ok...why do you think that?
I'm a fan of reflections, so I like this shot. I don't mind the cat being centered since you have to actually look at the picture a little bit to see it, it's not just like "here a cat in the center of the frame." Not to me anyways, I was drawn to the textures of the pot and the wood. The only thing I might have done differently was maybe level the shot different. It looks like the bottom/ledge the pot is sitting on is level, but the wood seems to be slanting, not sure if it would look better if the wood was a little more straight.
ok good you see it too..i was really wondering if it was just me seeing it as a bit slanted...a crop could fix that right up
i think its a very interesting photo. I like reflection shots but this one gets to be a little distracting. my first focus was the pot and ledge, then the cat, then the reflections.
I like it. I also like the reflection. Good contrast between the foreground and background. Well shot. Good job. 6/10
didnt you post this one over at photoforums as well? Im pretty sure I saw it there.

That is the only flaw I can find in the picture.
use a polarizing lense .. the cat centered draws away form the flower pot it is way to distracting...
i dunno, i like it. i'm not much of a photo critique, but i am very into symbolism within paintings and such. so going from that perspective, could say the cat symbolizes birth, youthful curiousity, but it looks out through a tarnished window onto a world full of death and decay.
