6/10 - kitty is facing away, can't tell what he/she is looking at...I don't know, it's a pic of a cat looking out the window...nice if it's your cat, but otherwise lacking interest. But take that with a grain of salt, because I am no photographer. In fact, I use a cheap Olympus P&S, so it's not even a serious hobby...anyway...

8/10, good detail, nice catchlight in froggy's eyes.

I can't take all this cat cuteness without other cute representatives, so here's a panda.

So many cute kitties, oh my. How do you all get the backgrounds so nice and blurry? I'm go down to f/1.8 and it looks nothing like that, is it pp?

Cute Panda, nice and sharp, 10/10, I feel like it's missing something tho, perhaps a different composure, maybe less background?

I don't have another image to post right now (and we shouldn't rate those that rate us, but great blood moon photo!), but I can answer your question. A combination of things gets a totally blown out background.

a) wide aperture (you've got that down),
b) get close to your subject, and
c) have whatever is in the background farther away from your subject than the distance between you and your subject. The farther the better, and the more blurred the background will be.

The farther you are from your subject, the less blown out the background will be; depth of field increases with distance from subject. If you're shooting f/1.8 at 50 ft away, you won't blur the background very much. At close to minimum focusing distance (MFD), or even several feet away, the depth of filed at 50mm & f/1.8 is paper thin.

Here's a DoF calculator you can play with.

10/10 For the blood moon, I woke up at 2 AM and went out on my balcony and saw clouds, no moon. Oh well
