[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello All,

Another pose given by a pet cat :)

The way cats look at you is somewhat mysterious I feel. The way they gaze at you is another questioning aspect to me.

Anyways, I like the look of this cat and the textures of its fur. It was late evening time and the light was quite well enough to get a relatively good exposure for this moment. Therefore, I had to go for high ISO numbers.

Have a nice day.




ISO=1600, Focal length=105 mm, cropped and resized for TL.

Hi Paras,
Excellent eye contact! Wonderful sharpness and details, lovely natural colors. The movement of their ears completes their expressions :) Have you also noticed that ?!

Hallo Paras, eins der besten Katzen Portraits, Klasse ins Bild gesetzt. Über das fehlende Stückchen Ohr schaue ich mal darüber weg, das stört nicht, denn diese Katze hat eine faszinierende Ausstrahlung. Glückwunsch für dieses Foto.
Liebe Grüße Rose

Bom dia Paras,
The great Roger Minkow uses the term empathy to explain the current understanding that forms between the photographer and animal.
It is your case here with this stunning photo.

Beautiful cat portrait, excellent focusing, nice POV.
