My neighbour's cat who seems to have adopted my garden and has a little hidey-hole under the hedge where he stays for most of the day: the birds hate him!

I don't think you could ask for better framing. Only improvements in my eyes would be a lower perspective (as long as it was not detrimental to that natural framing) and maybe a little soft - fill-flash to lift the shadows across the face. Nice work.

Thanks Nick - Obviously I can't take the photo again but I've tweaked the image a little to 'lift' it as you suggest.

What a superb image. OK, I'm biased and I like anything with a cat but this really is cracking with the framing; it's almost as though he's wearing a rather large laurel wreath-type of thing. Nick is right about a lower perspective but then puss may have then came out for a stroke.

Thanks Alan - he did!

A cracking shot Penny, this is spot on, beautifully framed and caught just at the right time, very well done indeed, luv it.

A lovely well taken image Penny, a perfect capture, the natural framing looks great in this attractive composition, he looks really cute amongst all that greenery, sadly the birds have good reason to hate him, at this time of the year when birds are nesting, with young fledglings barely able to fly, and not yet streetwise, our gardens become killing fields, cats being nocturnal animals are experts at seeking out nesting/roosting birds at night when they are at their most vulnerable, result carnage, not pleasant but true.

Can only agree with above comments - fantastic framing
