The Boys (redux)

    Newer Older

    This being one of my more popular photos, I decided to give it a little attention and facelift by cropping the original. I hope you like it. These are my daughter's cats - Squirmy and Screwy (left to right) when they were kittens.

    There has been a lot of traffic on this particular picture and many folks adding it to their favorites. How did you happen to find this picture? I have not done anything recently to promote it and yet it is getting 100 or more new views per day. I'm really curious as to why? Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks for the link to the blog entry.

      Awww. They're so cute!! Their little ears. You even got decent lighting. Unfortunately, not quite decent enough, because the detail around their noses is soft. Also, the one on the right's eyes aren't shadowed, but it's not perfect, and it really does have to be startlingly original to be kept in DM, when people keep submitting kitten photos.

      But critique a few more photos, and play again soon!

      baboo forgot to tag; I tagged for him. Even if he is a goon about the "eyes being the strongest point" nonsense; it's clearly the ears that are.

      I guess I should have seen that coming. At least it was a quick, clean kill. For those in Deleteme! with useful comments - thanks. To those not familiar with Deleteme! and are just cat lovers, I'm sorry you had to witness my offering of these defenseless kittens to the Deleteme! Wolves.

      And a beautiful pair they are, too. Guess they're more worldly now.

      The kittens are super cute. I think the increased traffic is due to the fact that there is a thumbnail of the image in a recent Flickr blog posting - At least that's how I found it.

      Forget the negative comments. I am a passionate cat lover & I promise you - this shot is GORGEOUS & so are the 2 cats. Adore the light shining through their ears too! One for me to add to my collection without a doubt!
