I really like this image - I quite like the 'soft' feel to it, with your processing it gives a wonderful 'dreamy' quality. The composition is ideal and the complimentary colours make this a brilliant image. Well thought out and captured!
Yes, they are brothers. The litter consisted of these two and two black ones! Paddy and Taffy couldn't be more different in both looks and behaviour. Paddy is big and clumsy, doesn't really hunt much and loves having his tummy stroked. Taffy is a little fairy, small and lithe. Hunts all the time and is quite nervous.
My 'boys' have already had the tree over and several baubles on the floor (don't even mention the fairy/angel!). I haven't put the lights and proper decorations on the tree since we got them (this will be their third Christmas) - just tinsel and a few really cheap baubles! They seem to think it's their own personal indoor exercise area!
You've coped brilliantly with the low lighting and being jostled by those around you - when uploading your images it's really helpful if you fill in the 'What camera' box. This will allow those who know your equipment to give some hints and tips on how to improve.
I hope you enjoy your time with us, if you have any problems or questions don't be afraid to ask (someone on here is bound to know the answer!).
