First entry using an M42 to Canon adapter and an older lens. This is taken with my Fujinon F/1.8 55mm prime lens. Really liking these older lenses.

This is our (mine and my girlfriends - Purple_Girl) rat Dione reaching for her mummy. She loves attention & reaches like this almost everytime without fail, she is absolutely adorable.

Editing: Cropped photo, adjusted brightness and contrast using levels, desaturated cyans, blues and greens completely, selectively desaturated reds and yellows to complete greying out the backdrop. denoised a little with topaz denoise 4, Sharpened with topaz sharpen. Resized, sharpened a little more and added borders.

A personal best score and very happy with the placing.. thanks for voting people :)

Very cute. And well photographed, too. A couple of the background lights are a tad bright.
