    Default Fur Babies CC

    I know most of my pictures of are A&A. I just can't resist taking 100's of pictures of them.

    But here are a few of my fur babies. Sadly I fear they feel neglected and forgotten most of the time with the craziness that is our life with twins. Buster, the tabby, was a bit more cooperative and stayed in place longer for me. Duke thought it was time to eat, so he jumped up before I could get shots of him all stretched out. He's a pretty big cat--- close to 20 lbs.

    CC please. I think I did a good job with the focus. The ones of Buster are some of the sharpest pictures I think I've ever taken. Duke's face seems a little OOF... Not sure if I focused on the wrong place, or if my A is off. Also, what I know I need to work on is comp. Not really liking the comps in the pictures of Duke. I was still working on deciding what exposure I needed with his fur being white when he jumped down. These aren't SOOC. I did some editing in PS--- white balance, fill light and possibly some exposure tweaks. I did put the stats for the originals.

    I love #1! What a great fur baby photo!

    #2 is nice, and normally I love photos with a lot of negative space, but the amount of negative space at the time combined with the fact that the cat seems a little tight horizontally makes it not quite as preferrable a composition for me.

    I like #3 -- wish that one ear wasn't chopped, but I like it.

    #4 seems lacking a little something, just not sure what.

    Thank you Tracy.

    Here's another one of Buster that has a little more negative space than #1, but not as much as #2.

    Such beautiful kitties! I really like #2...I see what Tracy is saying, but I still really like it. However, I think #5 is my favorite.

    Of Duke, I prefer #4 because the lighting is better in that one. I wish you had backed up a bit to get Duke's paws in the photo.

    In that last one of Duke, you can SO tell his personality, and that he wasn't really wanting his picture taken! LOL! It's funny how animals can give attitude too.

    I LOVE #5! Perfect! These are really beautiful, Danielle! You're improving so much! Keep it up!

    Pretty shots AND cats! I've taken some of my 2 kitties like this and I love them. I agree that I would prefer #2 with a horizontal crop. But the negative space is kinda cool too. Duke is so beautiful. I think #4 would be my fave of the set if his paws were in there
