[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I kept this photo a very long time on my computer's desktop.

It was making me smile each time I was coming online, and since may day usually is spent on the computer, it was doing fine.

Even so, I had hesitations about posting it here, because although a nice and natural pose, it is with a rather soft sharpness.

So, about the photo: soft sharpness, since I caught the moment, therefore the fact of being decisive. I could not ask him to reopen his mouth, also I was not with the camera almost in his face waiting for such a moment. I was getting ready for a photo session with him (he is my cat, anyway), when before I could be ready he did this. He like to yawn with open eyes. Is it normal in cats?

For the rest it is all natural (even his eyes in different colour), and I just made adjustments in brightness, contrast, saturation and colour balance. I kept the framing of his head in the middle (resisting to the temptation of cropping tighter) as I was not happy with the cropping alternatives.
