This picture is SO adorable. I can't even explain in words. I picked this cute shot right off the front page it was so cute. I love cats so this shot required a critique from me of course!

First off, the vision. The fact that you were able to catch these cuties in such a moment as this shows true photographic skill. Their paws are so big they almost look like mittens! The kitten second from the left has his paw around the far left kitten's shoulder and that just made the shot for me!

In terms of originality, the whole "kitten in a cup" thing is a tad cliché, but the "multiple kittens in a cup" thing added a twist of originality to the shot. The fact that they all even fit in there together is extremely cute.

Next, your photographic technique is absolutely flawless, with the creative use of a combination of a full-frame camera and a large-aperture telephoto lens created creamy narrow bokeh perfect for this shot. The shallow depth of field really draws the attention to the subject and the placement of the leftmost kitten in the upper-left quadrant of the Rule of Thirds grid really shows great ability to visually divide your viewfinder into a "photographic canvas" if you will. Your eye is led into the photograph through the narrow DOF, the left kitten, eventually following its head onto the other kittens, ending at the one precariously hanging off the edge! The detail in the fur is tack sharp, and for such a wide aperture and a full-frame Canon EOS 5D, the focus is spot on. Well done!

The impact was very well done, the cuteness definitely "clawed" at me for attention! This baby was the first picture on the front page that I decided to critique, it shows great natural ability to create photographs that really make you want to have a good long look at it. The soft, warm, muted color pallette used here is the icing on the cake!

This shot is an absolute gem, and you should treasure it for a very long time, as will I! I cannot seem to find one thing wrong with this shot. I have many cats myself and definitely think this shot will inspire me to photograph my own cats in funny situations as this one...perhaps a cat on a fence or something? Kudos to you Ömer, for capturing the beauty of this moment in all its grandeur! I am proud to have critiqued this work of art.

I enjoy how the colours of the cats goes with the colours of the cabinets in the background, and the bowl pulls all of that together well. It's interesting how the center cat's head is aligned so well with the center of the cabinets, so it the photo appears to have almost a sort of symmetry with only the small cat falling off the right setting it slightly off, giving it a more natural look.
The idea was an interesting one: four animals considered small for what they are, inside of a cup considered large for what it is. Together they give the impression that the cup and the cats are both normal-sized and a person could almost believe that you are, in fact, setting down to a breakfast of cats.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental 

hospital, because she killed her mom and dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the

staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so

they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the

machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on

a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you

and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and

she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently if you copy and paste

this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of you life tomorrow.You

will either get kissed or asked out, if you break the chain you will see a little dead girl in your room.
