A ferret at the shelter. I had been trying to get a decent portrait shot but these guys aren't too good at holding still! I think this angle works nicely for half a head and the whiskers do a nice job of filling in the negative space. Would have liked to burn out the carpet (he was on a carpeted cattree) but thought that would be overdoing it, processing-wise.

Had to use the flash+diffuser as the room was kind of dark.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, colored carpet to match wall, burnt carpet and wall to minimize, dodged eye, added border, resized, sharpened with noise reduction, cloned out hotspot on carpet.

Nice use of the diagonal to compose this.

Doesn't have any impact to me. Nice detailed macro shot, though.
