Lovely close up of Murphy. I'm still editing all mine!

Brighton, one of the most deliciously OTT places ever, and the Pavilion is riotously funny. Have a great day there Lillian and check out the museum for its collection of glass - fabulous.

A gorgeous creature, Lillian. Excellent close-up with loads of detail in that very handsome face.

I am not going to tell him he's having a bad whisker day!

Do you have another version for us with the eyes sharp?

A nice portrait and very sharp on the nose but if you had checked your ISO you could have lowered it considerably and thus as it is stood still in a great pose chosen a better aperture to afford more dof. Failing that focused on the eyes as they are the key parts for focus. The wrong parts are in focus and IMHO you could have had all the head in focus.
