A gorgeous portrait, Smudge is really photogenic!

Just a couple of minor points - did you want the colour cast? I'm not sure if its something you've added, or if you took the shot using an ordinary light bulb (if you have a lamp, try getting a 'daylight' bulb it will make all the difference). Also, could you have avoided anything in the background? Perhaps a small movement to the left would have given you an uncluttered look - saying that, knowing how my cats hate having their photos taken, I suspect you had to be quick!Smile

He is gorgeous, his eyes are wonderful and I love those white whiskers against the black!

Woweeee, Smudge is a fine looking Moggieeee..Smile

Karen has hit the nail on the head in all the technical areas to keep an eye on....Smile

So I'll add no more, But do keep trying, Kitty Kats are one of the harder subjects to work with, Coz! They just don't do posing, Well not often anyhow....Grin

Keep up the good work and check out all that Karen has mentioned.....!!!

thanks for the tips, karen the lighting was the main light in my room, its not very good, i tried editing the lighting, but it looked too fake, if you know what i mean. i took over 50 photos of him, ad he kept moving for all of them! Grin it was a sort of experiment, i'll be sticking to people and scenery Smile

Don't give up taking photos of your pets - but the main lights do add this sepia tint to everything. Try on a sunny day, or get yourself a cheap angle lamp with a daylight bulb (the lamp can be very useful for still life images too!). Smile

If you have photoshop, open levels, and use the white dropper and touch it on the brightest area of fur, on the right, and see what happens.
