Let's face it. Cats are common photography subjects, but the way you've captured this feline is superb! I like the fact that most of the cat's body is hidden, making it look as if it's peeking out from behind the tree, as if it's up to some mischief (super adorable!!) And it's expression is priceless, as if it's caught in the act.

I also like the way you've balanced this picture; the cat is focused and you can see the details in incredible sharpness, while the foreground and the background stays blurred. The foreground and the cat is of darker colors (and the trees are sort of shadowy) while the background is bright, warm and sunny. And did I mention how mesmerizing the cat's eyes are? Wonderful details and contrast.

I've compared this pic to the original, and I must say it's a job well done indeed, as you hadn't had to do much post processing to this image. And that, my friend is one of the things that makes this photo a gem. :clap:

If I had to complain, well it'd be about the lone stray twig in the foreground :/ It's kinda distracting, but not by much, so don't worry too much about it! :)

For starters, I really like this photo. I think the focus is spot on, how the cat and the leaf are in focus, while the background is nicely blurred.

After comparing this photograph to the original, I must say that the digital enhancement seems a bit overdone, but without seeing the original the brightness and coloring seem right (and very pretty!).

The twig in front looks a little awkward to me, but that wasn't before it was pointed out on another critique. Of course, this doesn't really matter.

Overall, this photograph made a very big impact on me. I mainly wondered how on earth you got the cat to stay still long enough to photograph her/him. Also the setting is lovely. <3 Thank you! ~

awesome photograph. the detail, crispness and color are superb. 
the cat's eyes are the center of attention. you were even able to catch the light reflecting off of them. 
i like the very subtle hint of orange in the cat's coloring, as if it is radiating from the beautiful leaf.
gorgeous!
