...or how about a "woof woof"?

Really I like the photo a lot. The cat's position (e.g. tail up, pose, look in the face) is very cool and matches well with the lighting / background. I like it that the cat seems busy in it's own thing (not distracted by you or the camera)..

Or was there just a big canine nearby on the ground, and the cat was starring it out..?

A small critique, the left shoulder flank of whisper (that's your cat's name, right?) is a bit blown out. But very hard to control in such lighting I know. For the rest the exposure and dof is very good and I would be proud of such a cat and such a catch.

Thanks for sharing, scot. Purrrrrrrr...

Very nice picture...where is Anderson Island located? Is it in or near the San Juans? I lived over in western Washington for a good portion of my life...Sumner and Everett.

Nice kitty Scot and nice pose. I had the same problem with a cat photo I took the other day in terms of the white being blown out. Just couldn't get it right - in fact I'm finding cats darn difficult to get a decent shot of for some reason. Have yet to get anything half decent of our black cat - seems dogs are far more user friendly for those spontaneous shots.

I see the tree line and the bluing is a bit distracting and the image comp is not working for me. The DOF is to strong. The detail in the fur is lost do to lighting. The white ballence is way off as the houses all look blue, "kelvin temp"

Nice point and shoot work, tho.

The blue above the tree line just kills this image.
