photoblog image Eyes
First off-Really sorry bout not being able take part in todays theme...Didn't know what to shoot!!! Good luck to the rest of you..I did try...

Right then, about this shot..took it awhile ago, was struggling to find something to post today until i found this hiding in the archives...The colours were shyte, so i had to tone them down and get this dull grey look-which i quite like...Got the eyes to stand out a bit more...

It's all in the eyes...

Sorry again bout the theme...

Thanks for stopping by :)

I'd rather see a good picture that doesn't fit the theme than a crappy picture that does. This is a good picture. I really like the grey. The depth of field is really good except for the cats nose. The green background works really well too. My only complaint about this shot is the different shade of fur at the very top of the photo between the cat's ears.
Yanik Tissera: Hey timmy, yeah that purple bit at the top erally pissed me off...i spent ages on it last night trying to clone it out, never really looked right...there was the same purple effect on the nose, which i managed to tone down a slight bit-explains the shyte DoF u spoke of..its cause a lot of cloning was done there...THanks for stopping by as always..grin

Aw... it's disgustingly sweet. I like the shallow DOF you used - it draws the viewer right to the eyes.
Yanik Tissera: Im glad it worked..Wanted the focus to be on the eyes..grin Thanks for stopping by..

I quite like this as a cat portrait. I don't need to see the rest of it. The eyes, quite rightly in sharpest focus, are a lovely colour, which is matched by the background. The green and grey work nicelytogether.

Isn't it great when animals co-operate?
Yanik Tissera: Thanks colin...its colin right?? Yeah its great when they co-operate..this guy looked directly into my lense a couple times..Im glad you liked the green against grey...thought i would get alot of sh*t about it..

Great clarity in the eyes and whiskers. Don't think it matters that the nose is soft.
Yanik Tissera: Cheers Steve...yeah hoped ppl would forget bout the nose..grin
