Galleries: Candid, Black and White

A candid shot of my kitties on a lazy Saturday morning. I loved the light, and Ashley decided to look at the camera while getting lots of loves from Jamie. Jamie can pet Ashley in his sleep, and often does.

As to the edit: levels, curves, crop, channel mixer, (can't recall if i hit it with a mild softglow or not at this point), a bit of select/copy/paste to correct a bright spot by one of the dresser handles, scale.

I'm not sure about the hot spot above his left shoulder, and I'm also not sure why he's hodling his arm up? There seems to be a lot of speckles on the picture as well.

the border is a nice touch, as is the cat.

The really strong light flare off his shoulder bothers me...but other than that, well done.

I like this shot - sets a great mood. There is some grain/artifacts in the lower left upper right that is a bit distracting. But it doesn't depress the mood in the least.

Ha ha. Good "real" photo. This captures a nice moment. This photo will score lower than it deserves, I'm afraid. Good work.

Love this kind of reality/journalistic shot. The light on the shoulder is distracting though
