[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my sons' cat. They brought it over a couple of nights ago and I took this photo inside the house, at night, reason for which the flash had to be used.

The photo was submitted to quite a few changes; the cat is actually in the horizontal position (as you can see in the workshop) on my son's lap.

I just loved the look in its eyes...doesn't "he" look cool and tough?!

Thank you for visiting and have a nice weekend.

Hi Lurdes.
What a fine looking feline! Great expression. Great sharpness and colour. And those eyes are awesome. Well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hello Lurdes,

He certainly has a cool dude look! It's the sort of expression exploited in cartoon films!

Lovely sharp image, fine details and the colours are super! Good pp work!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Looks like an evil spirit:)
Good portraiture, but you messed up the whiskers a bit, they look as if there are cobwebs on them.

Olá Lurdes,

Que belo olhar deste lindo gato!
Mais um excelente trabalho!

LOL!!! Love the "Don't mess with me!!!!" look.
Excellent capture and PP work.

Estive a ver o workshop e foi um bom trabalho!
Também costumo usar o Photofiltre e ainda não consegui perceber como se faz este tipo de molduras...! Fica optimo!

Hi Lurdes, excellent capture of the expression as the Siamese's are very expressive and can sometimes 'talk' if they're well-trained. Reminds me of an old cartoon or two, Felix the Cat and Top Cat. TFS

Olá Lurdes,
Gostei da edição... como sempre um trabalho com o seu "cunho" especial.
A expressão do gato diz tudo...
Bom registo


Very nice pose of your cat, the expression is just perfect. You have great light but you PP work is a little less.
Nicely done

O yeh - he thinks he is quite something - what a look Lurdes - you have to love that in cats - he is a real CAT.
Maybe the horizontal position made him strech his neck and give him an even more tough look.
Great job, love it.

Hi Lurdes, I like a lot your son's cat, lovely portrait with splendid eyes, elegant presentation, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Lurdes, this is one mean looking cat, he does look tough and has that "you got a problem pal" look in his eyes. Brilliant idea to turn it through 90 degrees!
Best regards,

Hi Lurdes,
that's lovely - remembers me to "Aristocats" - I like it very much, a wonderful moment
