I'll get it! by panna-cotta I'll get it! by panna-cotta
EDIT: I didn't like the previous editing. I cropped the previous version too tightly from the left because there were human fingers there. Now I decided to just erase them and leave the space. Plus the colours are more natural now and I think there is less noise :)

Norwegian Forest Cat
He's so adorable and I love his whiskers. I hope it wasn't the last time I saw him: there is another cat show this month! :eager:

Yup yup, very nice, więcej przestrzeni jest lepsze. Podoba mi się kolorowe tło które mimo wszystko nie odwraca uwagi od kota, bo jest bardzo ostry ^^

Whiskers *.*

Teraz jest dość mało miejsca, więc wcześniej musiało być okropnie. Cieszę się, że wpadłam na to, żeby zedytować ^^ Dzięki!

I love the cat and everything associated with it but the background does nothing for anything here I'm afraid. What a great cat and the whiskers are wonderful too.

Unfortunately backgrounds are always bad on cat show photos. But I'm glad you like the cat.

I love how his whiskers are forward and his paw his raised ready to swat at the feathers. He's such a determined kitty. Did you see him again?

No, but I hope to see him next time (although he'll be much older then). Hopefully I'll have better equipment when the next cat show comes and I'll be able to take better photos. I really hope to capture more that one kitten at once!

Kittens are those terrible little demonic furballs that you just can't help but go Awwwwwww over. They know they are cute and use it to their advantage.

Aw, what a lovely photo! I'm a sucker for cats. :giggle:

The timing here was impeccable, you captured this at just the right moment! The expression is priceless - the obvious excitement in the cat's eyes is infectious. :meow:

I do love the composition in this one. At first I wondered what that blue thing in the distance was, but then I realized it was actually the cat's toy. What an awesome shot!
I love how you didn't cut out the cat's ears or paw, either. I know how hard it is to capture a shot like this - cats move a lot! :B

The only thing I noticed was that the photo isn't quite as sharp as I'd like it to be. After looking at your camera data, I can see why! 1/99sec is pretty slow, especially when photographing moving objects. I always try to shoot above 1/200sec - unless I have a tripod - and as fast as possible with moving subjects! The shallow DOF works well for this photo well, too, as it blurs the background, but f/2.2 might be just a tad too small for this photo. I'd like to see more of the cat in focus, and more detail will come with a sharper photo! :nod:

Excellent shot :love:

Thank you :meow: I like the composition, colours and cuteness in this photo and that's why I decided to upload it, even though I think the blur is terrible.
I usually shoot above 1/300 but I always get confused when I'm indoors, especially when there's a cat show. Some of the cats were sleeping and 1/99 seemed just right with this lightning. Probably I just need more practice in fast thinking :giggle:
I'll keep in mind what you said about the DOF as I often regret using too small one.
Thanks!

Thank you! I don't know, to tell you the truth. All I remember is that it was to first show of this cat because he's so young. I don't remember anyone asking to buy this particular one or his siblings and I myself am not interested as I want my first cat to be from a shelter :)
