About the Image(s)

The cat was placed in the pot using Layer Mask. The Whip scorpion was added in Pin Light Mode to make it's surround in the original photo to disappear. It was then put through Reactor filter to change the lighting and finally P/S filter dark edges to bring texture into the pot.

Great composition. Everything is in the right place. Perhaps the lower part of the kitty could be a little darker to show
the direction of the light.   Posted: 11/11/2019 18:23:54

Betty, You've done a wonderful job handling this subject. I like the various filters you've used as they create a visual impact. I wonder if a little more attention to the blending of the edges of the cat at the edges of the pot might make it a little stronger visually, otherwise I think it is a keeper.   Posted: 11/12/2019 13:23:34

So clever of you to put the cat in the pot! There is something so satisfying seeing him looking out in that way cats have, just daring you to reach out and try to get him out.
The bug (cockroach?) is a nice touch, giving it that real arboreaum feeling.
Great composition and color, and the light is just where it works best.   Posted: 11/28/2019 18:38:47
