Roxy enjoying the Christmas wrapping paper. Decided to try out Photoshop cs5 over the holiday period, looking for ideas on how to enhance the photograph or backgrounds before having this reproduced into a canvas print.

Welcome to EPZ Mike.

A nice opening shot. The cat itself is a little underexposed, - lots of light reflecting from the bag is the culprit. White balance is a little yellow also, - shoot in RAW for more control over this. Impressive high ISO performance

Nice pose and catchlights in the eyes. Not fond of the border, - simpler is better I think.


Ive uploaded a mod to show what I mean, 0 scroll up this page and click the modifications tab.


Enjoy the site.



regards


Willie

Welcome from me as well Mike. This is typical of a cat, as soon as we ever appeared with a bag, sack, box or any for of packaging, the cat was in it at its earliest opportunity.

This then is appealing but photographically, the cat needs some independent illumination, but I can see from your EXIF there wasn't much around. I would have liked to see the cat less cramped, with the close crop and your border it does seem that the cat is trapped in there with insufficient room to move. Whenever possible keep away from full aperture, one or maybe two stops down is better where quality is concerned, different of course if you are looking purposely for a shallow DoF.

I am not fond of the colour cast I don't know whether this is a result of your processing or the temperature of the available light.

Willie covers most things, but your 1/6sec also shows as a little unsharpness. Image stabilisers do not stop shake, they help reduce it. Never depend on IS for a sharp result. I have several IS lenses, I can shake faster than they can correct!


Having said that, I rather like this. Nice tight composition with some appeal. Just a few minor technical issues.

personally, I love it.

It looks genuine and fun, I can see her whishers (?) are sharp and they are a great element in the picture. They help us also the depth, as a 3D picture. Her eyes have a great reflection. I have no problem with the colour, if it feels right then it is right for me.

On a technical note my only advice would be to cut 2/10ths from the left of the picture. Vertically, only.

welcome to EPZ by the way. enjoy
