happened upon this cat getting a drink from the families tap in one of the lane homes in Puxi. It was waiting to lap up the drops from the tap.

Hi Chris.

Lovely shot here, well composed and nice capture of an interesting moment.


Very good image. The DOP and sharpness of the water drops are excellent. Well done!



A great image, superb detail, composition and sharpness. Nice looking cat too :-)
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice image ! Great clarity ! Was this indoors? Couldn't help but notice your shutter speed of 1/1600. You must have had a lot of light. No flash obviously. TFS !

The cat being a cat good shot you got drama and a little feline emotion.

Hello Chris,
love the composition, the colour and clarity. Funny title too.

I love it Chris!

Usually in shots like this we catch the model (in this case a cat) at the wrong time, and the eyes will be shut or they just look silly! This is just right, great timing! And just what a great find. You did a great job on this shot.



So cute to see the cat trying to catch the water droplets. Very good action. shot.

Woaw I totally love this photo!
The sharpness is simply perfect and the look in the cats' eyes is so funny ^-^ It's as if he's saying: 'what're you looking at?!' or 'wait your turn or I'll scratch you' :D
The colours are really vivid as well and the way you have frozen time is great. The droplets hanging in the air. It's beautiful.
I love your photo, I even put it in my favourites ^-^

Keep up the good work
Regards Fleury
