    I like the point of view and bokeh in the first, but I think I would prefer if the glass was level and if the left side of the glass was not cut off so that I could see all of the top of the glass.

    The cat is cute, but I would crop out the blue stuff at the top.

    Take this with a grain of salt (and I didn't even look at EXIF) -- but a few things, in my opinion:

    - the first one for me doesn't tell a story. Probably would be better if glass was taken as a whole, then we might have a sense of the mood/environment?

    - for the second one, part of the tail was cut off. Maybe even better if you stooped down his eye level? And not sure, but I think the focus was on the head/forehead area? Maybe the DOF is too shallow?

    I agree that I would have liked the whole glass and level on the first one, otherwise not bad.

    The second one could definitely use a crop to get rid of the pool.

    I read somewhere recently that animal shots are generally a lot more engaging at eye level (like shots of children). I've had a lot of success playing around with that.

    My 2c :)
