Hi folks,

Afraid its another moggie picture today....Smile

This is my little gal " Pixel " doing the quizzical thing, I was testing my D70 following its return from servicing by Nikon, Think I might have found another cat lens to as I was using a Nikon 18-55mm VR thing, The same sort they dish out in kit lens deals, Seems to work ok....!!!

Here I used a Nikon SB-800 speedlight with standard diffuser, The spedlight head was set to vertical bounce because of the close proximity of the subject, Just enough catchlight without dazzling poor Pixies night vision eyeballs.....Smile

Apart from that the usual aperture priority (f/11 @ 1/60s) shot in RAW with all settings at zero and no sharpening in camera.

Post work limited to B&W conversion a tweak on levels with minimal sharpening applied, Have to own up to removing some dust/fluff specs on Pixels nose, She had just been rolling around in a hallway and had picked up some fluff, Must get the Dyson out soon....Wink

Roll on springtime.....Smile

Black cats are so difficult to capture well, but you have done it beautifully. I like your crop too. Nice catch light in the eyes.
