    I like the first one... The cat looks more intimidating that way, which I find cool with the setting.

    i like the first one better. the diagonal line of the cat makes a nice criss-cross with the beams and it's visually appealing. he also seems to be looking directly into the lens, which gets more "personality" into the shot.

    Hi all,
    First post here, I am a rank beginner just purchased a Rebel XT and I think this was the third picture taken - so go easy. Learning a lot from this forum, but have a long ways to go.

    Hi Robin,

    First may I say...that is one beautiful tortoise shell Tabby you have there!

    The first thing about the photo is the lack of sharpness. This happens a lot with cameras, especially if you're taking pictures of matte, unreflective surfaces. It looks like your camera had a hard time getting a focus lock, so it just sort of gave up or was hunting for a better lock when you pushed the shutter.

    I don't know the RebXT, but I'm assuming that there's a little blinky light that goes off in the viewfinder that tells you when you have a focus lock. (It might be supplemented by a 'beep' or chirp as well.) If you don't get that light or chirp, try refocusing by taking your finger off the shutter, recomposing the shot again, and pressing halfway down on the shutter to get the focus lock.

    Indoors, and in low light, this can sometimes take repeated tries. Don't give up. Your tabby is too beautiful not to share! Looking forward to seeing more photos... (That's my Leopold back a couple of pages, by the way.)

    The other thing I would say is try experimenting with the flash at different settings. You can adjust its compensation--in effect making it brighter or dimmer--and that can go a long way. See how kitty's colors are sort of muted, and the effect has been flattened? You were taking pictures in low light (just about anywhere indoors is "low light" as far as cameras are concerned) and the flash overwhelmed the subject. This is a common thing, especially of subjects taken close up.

    Congratulations on your new camera; keep experimenting! Photography is one of the most rewarding past times ever...

    yours,

    Julian

    I've got to learn how to use the clone tool! Who knew it had such power?

    I like the first one better as well. The cat looking directly into the lens reminds me of, well, catness. Hunched over, inquiring. Inscrutable. You know. Cat like.

    yours,

    Julian

    I can't decide probably the first - but I really like the mischeif in the second one. Great job on all of them!!

    My kitty Shen-Shen

    This is a pic I took with my new Sony DSC-W7. I am fairly new to photography, but very interested in learning more.
    Tell me what you think of this photo.

    Nice and sharp - a bit of a strange veiw, how about a few more different shots...
