Hello. May i ask, why you are the only group which declined that photo? :)
leonsfilmreviews.deviantart.co…

It got accepted and requests from artistic groups (over 50 in the first hours) too, who only accept the best photos (because the rules you are accept only the best, but there are MANY normal shots in your group, many in mobilephone quality).

The photo is not blurry too, the focus is clearly on the sharp face and the rest should not be sharp, like it should be in a good portrait shot.  Or should it be super-sharp like another photo of him?
bilder.hifi-forum.de/max/61043… But i saw photos in your gallery, which are really blurry, withouth any clear focus point. catsfans.deviantart.com/art/Ne… So this cant be the reason too.

It is not over- or underexposed

It was in the right gallery.

It is a interessting, little baby maine coon cat.

And the other points are right too.

I am just really disapointed, because i thought this will be a nice group, where i can upload more photos of cats. The assortment seems pretty random for me.

Edit: Since i postet this comment, i got more faves. So it is clear, people like this photo.

Hello!
I'm sorry for replying so late, apparently the other Admins are taking vacations these days. :giggle:

So, hmm... I see. Well, I believe that the number of +Fav's doesn't mean that a deviation be good or bad, as I have seen a lot of times photos with a lot of failures but "omg, how a cute puppy!" ... and gets lots of +Favs (even more if it was submitted to +100 Groups :roll:).

It's hard to guess how many photos of pretty kittens we see every time on this Group, so I suspect that we got a "cuteness immunity" lol, and so, we focus on the photograph composition.

For example, I think it would be better if the background would be of a totally different color! I mean, if one looks the picture from away, it gets difficult to say where the cat 'ends' and where it 'starts' (this is a personal opinion, the other Admin could have a very different review).

I can't tell why "Near or Far, I'll Be There" was accepted on the Group as it is from 2011 and I'm here since the last year. But about your photo: yes, I found it blurry! If the paws are closer, why are they out of focus? :o

Thank you for asking the reason of the declining, and that says good thing about you as an artist who want to improve his work! :) Have a nice day.

I beg your pardon if I make some English mistakes, as it is not my first language.

Thank you for the kind answer.
I have focused on the face and wanted the rest to be blurry.
But i understood, someone think, it is accidently blurry :)
I have submitted another, overall sharp picture to your group.
But i think, i add it to the Cat Photography 3 instead Kitten...

As for the groups, i was surprised, how many requested the photo, where i asked about.

Greetings
Leon
