    Well - it never hurts to have a go in your graphic package - as longas you save your new copy with a new name ( I often stick a 'B' after the file name - then you can switch between both copies to see which you prefer. This pic was using existing lighting - and I assume there was some kind of tungsten light on nearby - you might try to reduce the yellowing effect a little - depending on your graphics program...
    Nice one anyway - please post soem more pics sometime soon

    Hi Geoff,

    I've recently gotten my hands on Adobe CS, so we'll see what I can do. Thanks for the file naming tip, by the way; I'll be sure to follow some sort of commonsense convention.

    All the light nearby was electronically-ballasted flourescent. My white balance was set at 'auto', as was the ISO. (I'll check the EXIF data to be sure.)

    Thanks for the compliment on the hand-holding...it's a little soft, but considering how shaky I normally am (I live on coffee at times) I'm surprised that Leopold's face came out so well. I was using the camera strap as a brace and the cat held still just long enough (what is it about cats that constantly frustrates so many candid pics? It's like they KNOW what's about to happen, and twitch just to spite you!).

    I'd love to post some more stuff...we'll see if I can open up my 'portfolio' disk and I'd like to hear more of your analysis...

    Thanks again,

    yours,

    Julian

    Julian,

    Thanks for the kind comments - I'm no expert but I love to dabble - Here's a quick PP attempt in Photoshop at work- you will be able to do a much better job with Adobe! I didn't go too far as I haven't seen your cat in the flesh (Fur!).
    Looking forward to other pics from your portfolio
    Take care
    Geoff

    Thanks Geoff,

    I haven't had a chance to play with the image yet...to be honest the sheer number of possible ways to adjust my image in CS is somewhat daunting!

    I've actually found some of that portfolio stuff, and to my surprise, the stuff actually opens up! So I'll see about getting it up there; if I can resize it all, that is...

    Looking forward to your critique,

    yours,

    Julian

    Looking forward to your photos.
    Meanwhile I'm posting one, more for fun than quality.
    It's Oliver last year - lighting wasn't brilliant & I had to brighten the image a little. So it's not too sharp - but it was an amusing moment captured...
    Kind regards
    Geoff

    Nice play of lines in the photo, and the cat adds a lot, of course. Well done!

    Thanks John. Do you think I should clone out the twig?

    Talking i'm not john, but...

    i'll hazard a reply to the twig question. i think if you can get rid of the twig without harming the photo, you should. the twig is visually distracting, as your eye follows the line of the cat's body up to its head, your eye is drawn away just before you get to the cat's face by the curlicue twig. just my 2 cents...

    Firstly - I agree with John - the picture came out great!
    Secondly - yep a quick (and I mean quick) flick of the clone and a merest bit of USM produced this in Serif.
    Whats the camera ??

    Wow! That looks much better. It would have taken me a long time to clone it out. The camera is the Canon XT. !SO 800 f/6.3 w/the 50mm 1.8 lense.

    Here are two more. Which do you guys think is the best of the three?
