Very nice shot here. I only wish I could get great shots like this with my pets. Very nice sharpness and the B & W really gives the shot a nice touch.


Strange and beautiful....
Very great quality picture...
I love the cats....and this one too...
Bravo .,, like if he is jumping in the camera...

Great shot Linda. Wonderful pose and great pov. Adorable and well presented in b&w. Worth your wait! Well done!! TFS, Lori

Yes, I do know how HARD it is to get a CAT to pose. So I think you've done rather well here Linda...
But it looks like Puss is smirking at you - is that a slight curl of its lips as she's looking at you...
Good one MF

Hello Linda,

I had to laugh at this.
I have never seen a cat photograph which so much resembles a cartoon!
I reckon he/she has seen its reflection in the lens and is about to pounce at any minute.
Just love the strong focus on the eyes ... a bit cat eye, rather than fish eye!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Actually a very nice capture especially in B&W. Good dof with good contrast. Well done, tfs.

Ok... You've set me a challenge I can't resist. (Two cats in this here household). Great in B&W, lovely use of wide angle with a narrow DOF. Focus bang on the eyes! nice pic.

Hi Linda,
I love the in your lens pose from this cat. Nice focus on the eyes in fact it I can see a hint of reflections. I think the B&W was a nice color choice for this. Great use of the natural light and window. Nice shot Linda.
