.... TED ...

By SueTurner
This is Ted sitting on my office chair.

Used a borowed softbox and bowens light for this - but if you know about cats, they do what they want, when they want, there is no posing them you grab a shot when you can - so setting lights up is difficult cos they never seems to sit still in one position long enough, quite pleased with this one, liked his expression and the eyes are not coloured - they are the natural colour of a british blue.

This cat is just so georgeous. Now I know it already has 62 votes and I dont want to be a killjoy but........ knowing the perfectionist that you are........the light reflecting off the leather sofa and the seams of the sofa spoil an otherwise perfect shot. Perhaps you might try toning down the bg just a little. Having said that it is streets ahead of other cat portraits seen on here and far better than I can manage.

Excellent portrait; the lighting and detail are superb and a wonderful expression.
Being really picky, I'm not quite sure I like the large clear diamonds in his eyes as they give a very slight unnatural feel to me, but I've no idea how you get round that!
