sleeping yallow cat
 
Tis is my friend's cat. I took this photo with my Canon A70 with manual settings shutter 1/100 F2.8 and ISO50. It was resized from its original resolution (2048x1536) to 800x600.

And by the way, do you know how big prints I can get with this resolution (2048x1536) without losing quality?

Nice picture!
With your 3 MP you should easily be able to print photos in a size of an A4 paper. but not much bigger, I guess.

Could sb tell me if it's good picture or not? What error I made, if any? As for begginer one answer isn't enough for me ;). What should I consider taking another picture?

Well, I think, the composition is good, and the picture is sharp.
the only thing I don't like, is that you can see a glass standing behind the cat. ;)

I agree with Kex.
If you were very careful, you could try and clone out the glass but unfortunately in this case, it would not be easy. Another solution would be to clone it out as best you can (doesn't have to be perfect) use the lasso around the cat and table, then inverse select and apply some gaussian blur to the background.
You would then have to blend around the cat with the smudge tool or the clone stamp. It would probably be a little time consuming but the end result might surprise you.

Very pretty cat, just the same :D

JED,

Yes, the glass and table in the back do detract a bit and also the shadow in the cat's face is a bummer although it was probably unavoidable.

Hope you have an idea what Jazzcan was talking about - Gaussian blurs etc...

Aloha.

I don't really mind the glass or the stains on the table (bird poo?). To me it shows that cats are not fussy and can find a way to get comfortable and take a cat-nap in any almost any quiet setting.

Thanks for replies. The problem is that I'm not at home right now and I won't be for two more months, and I don't have Photoshop at the place I'm staying. But I tried to do sth, with Paint Shop Pro. Besides this I'm compeletly beginner in PS or PSP. This is what I did, it's not realy good but I'll try to improve it.

JED,
You did a pretty good job especially of cloning the glass out.
You need to blend around the cat a little more but you're definitely on the right track :D
