Default My cat - Aiko

I'm new to photography, so please bear with me.... Her eyes looked much sharper before resizing it. Oh, well.....

She is about 7 years old. I got her from a local farm when she was kitten. She is super talkative.

hey hiro wooooa what a fur ball, what program did you use for resizing? i mention this as you say it looked sharper!

ok the cats eyes are prrrrfect look like snake eyes to me.... ok now to the crituque the cats head is mainly the focus point on this shot which is good but if you intended getting all of your cat in focus you need to adjust your DOF you have also cut the cats tail off which appears to becoming from a black hole...... have you thought about cropping it ? good to see you here dude.

Thanks for the great tip Simon! I didn't even think about cropping. That really helped!

BTW, I used MS Paint to resize the photo.
