This is the very first photo worked on in CS3
Converted from RAW to TIFF after small shot setting changes.
Sent to Noise Ninja to help with noise from high ISO. Auto profiled.
CS3 adjustment layer- black and white, I played with red and yellow channels to get most of the effect you see here.
Burn tool on eyes.
Back to Noise Ninja for noise on white background.
CS3 slight crop, resize, save for the web using bicubic sharpen.

Thank you Karen for all of your advice.

I hope this gets me out of the 4ís

Honestly, I thought I was looking at a flea or something from the thumbnail. Maybe my contrast is a wee bit too high. I do like the effect here. A wonderful technique.

Well, you got a 7 from me. I think it's fantastic in every sense.

I very much like what you're going for here, and on many levels it works quite well. On my work monitor, this is a bit hard to see, but on my home monitor it's quite lovely and the cat is well-defined. I suspect this is the kind of shot that is VERY monitor dependent and that will show up in voting. Gotta love that kind and loving without a camera soul that gave you a 1.... Someday they'll maybe try this and find out just how hard it is to do!

Wow, that's the last time I give you any advice - yikes. Sorry, Alan. I still like it though. :)

Very regal... the white background doesn't do this kitty justice.

Uh-Oh, I thought I'd seen the brown already, but this is some stiff competition.

I can appreciate the white-on-white effect you were going for, and it have otherwise made a stunning picture, but your kitty is blown-out a little too much.

Way too underexposed, I could hardly tell there was a cat there.

The white on white is interesting. For my eyes it is difficult to see, but that not is really not a critism, I just can't seem to focus on what is there.

Awwww! I used to have a beloved cat that looked just like your royal highness. I love LOVE how you did the soft white on white. . . right up my alley. Good luck!

Just a little too blended. It is hard to shoot white on white.

Way to white and bright.

It is too over white for my tastes

High key technique seems a bit extreme.

A bare essentials photo...very zen!

It took some looking bur I finally saw the white cat against the white background. Too overexposed or high key for me.
