My cat's eye. I'm surprised I could even get this shot because she kept moving.

You wanted me to give you a critique for this image. And as I tell everyone; don't mind the stars, they don't teach you anything.

Having a look at your metadata I notice that your shutterspeed is very low for a handheld photo. Normally you'll be able to do a decent shot with 1/60sec, but here you're at 1/25sec. The result of this is that you're image will be uncontrollably blurry. The best way to remedy this for a pocketcamera would be to add more light.
Also when photographing anything at all, always be aware of your framing. If you scan the edges of your frame here you'll notice that you've also captured a door in the background at the lefthandside. Me and you both know that a closeup of a catseye doesn't have anything in common with a door like that, so capturing this from a different angle might provide you with a pure white bakground (like your wall). The result of this would be a less confusing image to look at in the end, as the viewer don't get distracted from what you're trying to represent.

So to sum this up: add more light and control your borders :)

It's quite obvious what you are trying to show me as a viewer, so you could add some more vibrance to this image, this would make the eye pop even more. Also giving the eye some more sharpness would help the cause.

Adding the photography- and post-processing part together will give you a slightly improved image.

Hope this was helpful :)

Amazing close-up, the details on the eye look really beautiful! I once tried to take a good photo of my dog and it was quiet difficult to make him sit still for a few seconds...and I guess with cats that even more difficult. :)

Animals are just difficult to make stay still, I suppose!
But thanks! :)
