Why do I like this? Well it is a photo of contrasts. There are the heart shaped highlights in the background and the star shapes in the blue cloth set against the ginger tabby at. The cat is playing but is also still.
The quality of the photograph, for me, comes through these contrasting elements.
The star shapes were created with lens attachment. The aperture is f2 producing a tight depth of field.
Yes, its a bit different but that is also its strength.
