On The Hunt by darkdex52 On The Hunt by darkdex52
A random shot taken in Valmiera, Latvia. The cat was hunting something and I got lucky and got this shot while he(?) was concentrating.

Cat's real colors are Black, Yellow, Brown.

edit: Got featured in the Cram Magazine: [link]

Very beatiful. at first, i thought u might have drawn this, and i was like, how did he get the eyes to shine??? yes, you got very lucky. most cats dont concentrate for more than a minute or two . i love the way you took this shot, up close, so you can see his(?) facial expresstion. i also love the way it was taken or modified to be in black and white, it makes it that much more stupendous. i would also like to say that, how you caught him looking to his right (our left ), makes this picture perfect. by far, the best one ive seen you do yet!!! in pictures, ofcourse.

sincerily-A.S.

This picture really grabbed me attention. It shows the emotion perfectly! Having cats my self, I understand how hard it is to get them to "pose" for pictures, this is amazing! Also, the perspective is at just the right angle, had you shot it from anywhere else the photograph would lose all its effect.

Overall, I think you encompassed the attitude of the cat amazingly well. Thank you for the opportunity to write a critique on this spectacular photograph. Please don't stop with the good work and keep it up. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Thanks again.

A feline on the hunt is honestly a frightening thing. They can be so focused, so driven to catch their prey.:scared:
