This is a really adorable picture. The shot is good and you can see it perfectly. The special effects at the bottom of the page (the soft blackness) adds a nice touch to it. And i think that the like sparks (the little circles like in the middle of the picture) is also a nice touch. There is a little blur on you right thumb but other than that the picture is amazing. Great shot and great angle. Everyone will enjoy this picture whenever they want to see a cute or a picture of a kitten. Too cute. ^^ Great job (:
The size of the kitten is a good symbol of showing "innocence". However, the girl's hands do not. They are covered in flashy hot pink nail polish, which look like they belong to a certain type of preppy, not-so-innocent girl. The drawing (or tattoo) also contributes to the impurity of the girl. You know what would really make this picture interesting? If you photoshopped the girl's hands into that of a gooey, slimey, hideous witch's. It would contribute to the effect it has now, which is a contrast between purity and impurity, in my opinion.
If you want to make it look completely pure, then get little girl to hold the kitten, with unpolished fingernails, no tattoos, and no bracelets/ bangles.
so cute! there is really nothing you can do to improve this photo, I really disagree with Raepunsel! although that would be a good idea for a photograph, I don't think it was the image you were going for.
What most people don't understand about photography is that people capture exactly what they wanted to. If they really wanted a certain hand-type holding it like old wrinkly hands, or young unscathed hands don't you think they would have done that? Honestly everything is scrutinized in photos, don't you honestly think the photographer would have put thought into every detail?
You can only go by interpretation and not sorely on what you think they should have done.
Actually, you know what would be really good? If you put this kitten in the hands of an older woman with defined digits (wrinkles, hehe). Showing the young and the old across species. I think that would be gorgeous.
Not sure if my earlier comment got through, so I'll repeat here that I love this photo, but do believe it would have been more effective without the nail polish and even without the jewelry. Something simple to amplify the adorableness of that very cute kitty.
AWWWWWWWWWWWW, That is HEAPS cute. Beautiful photo!
Indeed, I agree with the critique by Raepunsel. At least to the point that maybe it would have been more effective if the nails were natural, no colour. Even if there was no jewelry. But gosh, it's still a beautiful shot.
