Asymmetry by panna-cotta Asymmetry by panna-cotta
My entry for Active Animals Contest artisticanimals.deviantart.com… by ArtisticAnimals

This cat was so busy hunting for the other one that it didn't even notice how funny it looked like :)

Hey!

You wanted me to write a critique for this one. As I tell everyone I write to; don't mind the stars, they don't teach you anything.

Photographically:

When you get moments like this try doing 3-6 captures, so you can make sure your focus is spot on. This also gives you the opportunity to frame it nicely.
When you are photographing anything looking for something, you in general want to leave the most spacing at that side, which mean in a frame like this you'd get a slightly more interesting image if you move the framing a little to the left. Don't be afraid to cut away half of the cat if you can give the viewers the other half of the story, if you understand?

Post-Processing:
I would mention this directly in the photography-part, but when you look around the borders in your image, do you see the little piece of fence in the top right corner? I would crop this away, as it's a distracting element, meaning it doesn't add something to the image as a story.
I mentioned earlier about more space in the direction the cat is looking. Don't fix that in this image, but have it in mind when photographing in the future.
I would add contrast, sharpening (selectively at the cat and the fence it's standing on) and a vignette.

Hope this was helpful :)

PS!

Have a look at this video: [link] . It'll give you some ideas for the future :)
