Default Sleep tight

Hello,
I was trying some b&w conversion of my ISO25600 cat photo (see here if interested: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...-iso25600.html) and thought it came out rather nice - what do you think?

The "low key" feeling is a somewhat wanted effect here - that way I have just a tiny bit of the sofa, more a hint to say so.

Regards,
Th.

I love it. It almost looks like a charcoal sketch.

Thank you! Well - as long as my cat is outside the house most of the time, he should be able to stay in a "good shape", as he's rather fragile (must be the race I guess).

I just hope he's around for many years.

Uhoh, I learnt a new word... "exudes" . Yes - he seems to be very comfortable with us around...

@nhmom
and the next new word - charcoal. The only real way to learn another language is to actually speak it... Thanks for looking and the kind comment. I really wonder how it would print on good paper... maybe I should give that a try the other day...

Regards,
Th.

This is how he enjoyed watching us unwrapping our christmas presents today. (just a quick snapshot)

Happy Holidays to you and your families (including the cats and dogs and so on ).

Kind regards,

Love both shots, I like how you processed both of them. Perhaps I'll try photographing a cat tomorrow. Just hope that he'll cooperate and choose as good a posture as your cat did for you.

Thank you!

Want a tip? "Train" the cat to be comfortable with the camera, the clicking and stuff up to the point, that it behaves "nearly natural". Otherwise you only get a chance for a (exactly ONE) "surprise" snapshot or have to use a long tele lens.

Good luck and be sure to post some pics
