Default Cat close-up

I experimented with external flash. I made a bounce attachment for it and I diffused the light, enough not to hurt cat's eyes and avoid image burning out.

I wish I had a piece of paper to put undeneath the cat to fill in the shadow under its chin but this was a rare opportunity to catch this cat while standing still

It used to be my and my wife's cat for a while and we gave her to my wife's mother.
Later on we got this white persian cat. I've posted her photos on few occasions.

Cats rule

Yes sir, cats most definitely rule! Both photos are great, but that second one in particular is arresting. Nice, nice work.

That second picture really hits the spot. If only I could get my cats to stand still for a moment.

Nice and sharp, Good job, IMHO, the background needs cleaning up the shadow on the left is a little distracting, And some of the other spots by the whiskers, Remember Just my opinion...I have said this before, " The Background makes a Snapshot a Photograph" Keep Posting you have a good subject there.... opps Almost forgot The Eyes.... Perfect!!!

Thanks cowboy, I'm aware of the background but was too lazy to edit it
