Location: Charlottetown

This is Amaterasu, one of my pet mice. I named her after a Japanese sun goddess. She's a satin, bi-color, Angora mouse. It took several tries to get this shot. Mice are camera shy, and thus make difficult models to work with.

Alas, my beautiful mousey died in July of 2008. Mice don't live very long, but she lived a good life.

Crop, Brightness/Contrast, Saturation, Auto Levels, and Re-Size.

Nice centering of the shot but the focus feels a little soft

Wished so much that this image was sharper. It has the prospects to be a ribbon winner, but I feel that it will be let down by its lack of sharpness.

Really cute. A tighter crop vertically might enhance it somewhat, but good clarity on the furry subject and good idea for the challenge.

Cute mouse! The rope is a bit overexposed in some areas -- otherwise, a great image.
