and the winner is...

Laurent Lambert of Brooklyn, NY, for the photo of Fefe channeling his inner feline.

Judge Joe De Sciose chose this image because it has "such a homey, relaxed feeling, a cat basking in the sun streaming through the window, nice composition, and a wonderful balance of light and shadow."

Joe also offers these comments and suggestions to our runners-up:

Ulla (http://goldilocksfindsmanhattan.blogspot.com), I'd love to see the cat's face. It would have been a good idea to get eye level with the cat and get shots of him/her playing around the pumpkins. Shooting while lying on your stomach for an hour after having sprinkled the pumpkins with catnip would have given you some great shots.

Tracy, you've captured a great mood and the cats look terrific (definitely NOT starving!). The photo would have been stronger if you'd cleaned up the background (the black nursery pot, the grill and lid in back of the the fire pit) so we could focus on the main features.

Sarah, I'm pretty sure that's not a real animal...it would have been more interesting (and spookier!) with a strategically placed candle or a flashlight.

Many thanks to all of you from both of us. And Laurent, please email ESP so she can get you your prizes!

Does Fefe live on Clinton Street? He looks just like the confident and charming Abyssinian who walks freely on the sidewalk and tells passersby to take him home with them!I was sorely tempted!!!

Regardless, Fefe is very fetching.

Thanks Ellen x2 and Joe, I am really happy that you liked Fefe's picture.

@ Marie - Fefe lives on St Johns place in Park Slope where he walks freely on the front stoop on sunny days under my supervision. The Clinton St abyssinian must be a copycat :)
