[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Please let me introduce you to the new member of my family: Paulinha (pronounced: pow-lee-gna). My son brought her yesterday and the three of us were getting acquainted: Paulinha, me and my camera!

Although this isn't one of the best photos in the world (and I do have much better ones) I just had to post it due to her expression: You can't even see the pupils of the eyes!

I thought I was being original when I came up with the title of "Count CATula" and when I searched on Google to see if anybody had ever thought of that I found a whole bunch of count catulas! :D


>Cropped off on the sides only
>Added the tip of the tongue over the frame by copying its center (I had cut if with the camera)
>Revived colors on the kitty
>Saturated surroundings slightly


Thank you for visiting and a very nice weekend to all.

Hola Lurdes ;)
Great shot and design, TFS

Hi Lurdes,
I love how Paulinha's tongue extend out of the frame. I have trying to get an identical shot with my cat but with no success. Her eyes look fascinating. Best regards, Danilo

LOL!!! An excellent Cat from Hell capture.
What a face.

Hello Lurdes,
So this evil looking little creature is my new niece! What were you doing to the poor little creature? Her cousin Koala has much better photography manners, as you’ve already seen!
Paul means: Small; humble & Paulina is a diminutive of that!
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lurdes

Very good PP work here. You caught this angry expression of your new feline friend very well here. Not very friendly yet but I am sure we are going to see more shots of her.



Hi Lurdes and welcome Paulinha, impressive portrait with fantastic expression, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Lourdes,
so funny!!!! Brava!

That is so interesting that you can't see her pupils! I also like the bit of plaid behind her. She looks "ferocious". Have fun with her!

wow very cute shot the expression rocks...hahaha...really cool shot
