Hi Mr Surapon.
Very nice shots, it must be wonderful having these beautiful creatures grace you with their presence. I'm incredibly jealous but then if they were in my tree I'd never get anything done, I'd be too busy watching them.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi OgreatKman.
Nice shots, the manic dog is fun but the portrait looks like he swallowed a shoe and is struggling with the laces! :eek: I hope no one was wearing it at the time. ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Hi TeT.
Interesting shot, I had to really study it to see what drew me in apart from it looks a lot like my moggy. I think it was the focus, the eye that is prominent has the surrounding fur sharper than the eye ball and the other eye is tack sharp, I think this is a plus point not a criticism. Hopefully not her last winter.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Folks.
A couple of shots of two of our three cats, they are sisters. I might have taken the portrait bit a touch too literally, I got the flashes and brollies out for this session! :eek: ;D
White shoot through on the right, silver on the left, flashes set to groups with the key on the right and the fill on the left at 1/8th power, E-TTL with the flash compensation at -1 to -2 1/2.
Please be constructively critical.

Do you have any idea how annoying those flashes are?
