A wondeful presentation of your mate, Annette. Time is a healer, though I'm sure you don't think so right now. Just take it slowly, and carefully, and remember all the good times. Carol x

Perfect DOF, great light -- hitting the grasses and the top edge of Fafnir's head.
I love the eyes.
Nicely done. Fafnir earned her (his?) model's fee.

PS My thoughts going your way as well during this difficult time.

This is lovely Annette !! Excellent use of light ! I am so glad that you are back - thanx for all your votes, much appreciated ! Like so many said before, time makes it easier to live with the loss - I know - we lost first my mother in law, then my younger sister then my mother in a spate of just three months !! Still miss them but can laugh again Smile

What an effective and beautiful shot. His eyes steal the show, and good for you to have brought out the detail of his face...not an easy thing to do in a dark cat. Fabulous shot!
