Image looks well exposed, but there are no highlights or contrasting elements. It's called flat lighting...

Looks like there was some kind of fill-flash or light from in front/below the subject, thus killing the contrast.

To me it looks like the cat is looking up into a ceiling fixture. Either way, it's flat.

What should he have done to correct this? Remember a cat is always moving around so that makes it harder for setup shots. Any tips? I'd like to know too :)

Bounce flash? Either from the ceiling or off to the side from a nearby wall. That's what I would've done to create more contrast and depth.

You don't have "imaging editing okay" set. But since you asked, here's my quick 1 minute post-processing. Bumped the contrast up by 20 in CS5 and then used the burn tool under the chin to darken it slightly.

Adds a lil more pop and depth. (Or at least I feel that it does.) :)

Put a Curves Adjustment layer and created a small S curve. Might be too much but it adds more punch ("or at least I feel that it does"). :lol:

Here's a little more subtle than the previous one. Changed mode to Lab and did some magic (okay, tragic) there. :D:D:D
