I got to learn how to use that smudge tool. I love this. The eyes are haunting and the effects are outstanding.

love what you've achieved with the smudge tool! I agree that the effects "take this over the top." But your lighting is also perfect and you have a beautiful subject whose eyes and personality have been perfectly captured!

There are so many 'cat's eyes' shots out there that I tend to find myself skipping over them... not so with this one (and I'm not even a cat person!) Congrats on the win.

I just saw this on the home page and had to comment. Lily is so beautiful and has the most gorgeous markings! I love calicos. Love the close-up full frame of her face, those eyes, and your effects. I can see why this was chosen as a winner!!
