Hello Everybody!
It's me again!

So...apparently, thanks to my mother, Tinka is quite famous here on TrekLens. So I've decided to post another one of her to add to the family's collection of her online!

"Hi. It's me Tinka again. There's nothing worse than those humans photographing me while I'm taking my bath. All I ask is for 10 minutes of privacy. Is that too much. All well...My bath can't wait, and it looks like the camera will still be in my face, so I guess I'll just have to hope that it doesn't end up on the internet."

**Post Pro**
- cropped the little photos into a square
- auto levels and increased the contrast for all
- increased the white in selective colour
- sharpened using Luko's sharpening method
- resized for web and saved

Great sharp shot Pamela, It shows in great detail how a cats tongue works on its coat. I love the way you've done the smaller inset frames and the Paw prints on the frame too. Well done and TFS

Hi Pamela,
Excellent picture placement and the graphic cat feet and symbol along with the text is well carried out. The sharpness on Tinka's tongue is quite amazing. Interesting subject with some great side frames. I like this display. It's fresh and an unusual pov.
The flash did alright with the fur. IMO I could see these images with a little warmer light to them. Anway, the clarity is fantastic. That little cat logo/emblem is just really cool looking. Great display with funny note.

take care,

Hi Pamela,
I love the macro here! Gee!
Great sharp/clear shots showing the details that make this close-up so great as well as one cute-looking cat! Your layout and graphic is great as always.
Keep posting. I love your work.


Awsome job :)

Excellent picture. Great macro.


love it, Love It, LOVE IT!!!!

I am a fellow cat lover, and these are great!!!

and I'm definitely gonna try out Luko's sharpening method.. it looks very sharp and not overdone at all.

Great layout of all photos, too.

did I mention that I love this? :)~


Hi Pamela, I have to admit that while I think the photos and post processing are excellent the tongue is grossing me out! lol. I knew cat's tongues were scratchy but I didn't know they looked like that!
regardless the sharpness is amazing and the lighting is perfect. You DOF control is very good. nice job. JP

Great montage! I like the tongue so sharp we saw very well the brush style for clean-up!
Would you like to try my new bubblebath with fish perfume and flavor? Other cats love it!

Really good detail on Tinka's tongue, it looks like it could grip anything.

Truely is an amazing set of picture's you have here. I am really interested in learning how to use Luko's sharpening method. Thank you for the info and the beautifull picture's.

wow, i am amazed at the texture of the tongue, i could not capture anything like that from Cookie (my cat). Hmmm..Very nice shots of Tinka, never get tired of her. I love that cute little button you created. That's cool.

Neat photo!! Wonderful layout, very unique. The detail is incedible! Very nice!

Good one Pamela! Tinka is a show cat, and she needs her spit and polish every now and then.
Super photos put together and they make a great presentation. Well done.

Pam, I'm amazed at how sharp Tinka's tongue is! Haha, it's a good thing my dog's tongue isn't the same, or I'd have all of my skin scraped off by his constant licking! I love the clean, elegant presentation here, and thanks for posting Luko's sharpening method. I've definitely gotta try that out myself too.

Great photo collage! You have some really great details. The texture of her tongue is amazing. Well done.

I am a dog person because my daughter is alergic to cats, but this is an wonderful and amazing photo , cats are cool people. hahahaha
Excellent the way you have done the framing and all,

Let 'm come, Pamela... We'll never get tired of Tinka. I love the pigment spots on her nose, and the details of the "sandpaper" on her tongue ;o). Nice compo too. TFS

Hi Pamela

Qu trabajo tan lindo la nitidez la composición las huellas guau increibles

Saludos Nat Copado

Hi Pamela,
Excellent work. Great displayed and detailed.
Good clarity. TFS.

What a nice composition!! Really nice!
The tongue is really clear!

a humorous picture along with a funny description lol

I like the sharpness and cropping. However, I would very much prefer to have a more yellow white balance. At the moment, the flash is too strong. But this is just my idea.

Good work

You are one of my fave photograph!
You have the originality and you always search for something new!! Congratulations!
