This one is your best, the lighting is pretty nice. You should add some effects to it though, maybe some gradient maps? Keep up the great work :3

The mountain one was taken over the Chilean side of the Cordillera de los Andes at around 15,000ft.

These are lovely!

The only criticism I have to offer is with the first one. With photos like that, it's best to have the object be completely straight and even across the picture. It's slight, but the logo is a liiiiitle off. Not enough to be bad, though.

Hi!!
Now that's what I say good pics.
Kittens really look cool. The one above kitten in your first comment is also a good pic.

Okay, these are some amazing pictures. The one with the mountains is beautiful, and the ones with the cats/kittens are just so cute! <3

Tho I am extremely aware that these are all cats, I have to say those photo's are awesome.. How did you get the first one to do that? :D

Also those kittens are so adorable! And the last one is like a he's gonna jump at something. :3

I don't add blur, i don't have photoshop. The blur you see is from the picture's DOF (Depth of Field), here is a picture of my <3 camera. A Nikon D50.

Your pictures are absolutely stunning. I'm trying myself to get into photography, but I haven't been able to use the settings right for my camera.

Though I would like to ask why this image has words on it; http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2710/4322896056_0c81639312.jpg

Is this a watermark issue or?

Yeah, it's from the tone mapping program called photomatix, which i am using the trial version. hehe. Don't want to pay for it... i'm still looking for the keygen on internet.

Wow. Just wow. I really admire your work Maria. :)
The focus you have in some of your photos (especially of the cats) is stunning.
The way your photographs just pop out with emotion and voice is great, and the edits you've made on some of them really make them stand out. :3


@The Kittens: First off, they are the most adorable things ever.
Second, I really love how you were able to capture each of their personalities and really how kittens really are.
I never realized how beautiful cat's eyes were until I saw your pictures [=

I can't wait to see what more you have to offer! n__n


Oh, and can I steal your camera please? ^^"
