This is "Jack". Named after "Jack Bauer" off of 24... we've only had him a few weeks, he was abandoned with some nasty wounds, but he's on the mend now!

Set up a crude "studio" in the living room. Used my lava lamp base, a poised lamp & dismantled a 150w halogen as well. White cloth used as background. This has the most photoshop I've ever used. Used curves to brighten the background, then dodged the showdows a fair bit. I cloned out two distracting reflections in his eyes & that about it. Took 80 shots in total, whittled it down to two, both very different. I hope I chose the right one!

I wish the ear did not touch the side of the frame.

The background seems a little 'dirty' in places and the image would have probably looked just as good with another solid color background. Could have done with a little more room on the left too. The lighting looks ok.
