Flash was kind enough to stay put this morning when I caught him basking in this ray of sunlight.
I hope you like this, as Flash was quite pleased with the result.
Thanks for looking and thanks for votes and comments on my Passiflora image.
Critique is welcome - I figure if I can hand it out, I should be able to take it also
We have a 3-day weekend over on this side of the pond, so I will catch up with you in a few days. Thanks for looking, but by all means don't open the large version.

Great lighting well done. Just the way I always picture a cat
looks like selective colouring !
back to work today ; will mostly c&r for a couple of weeks, sorry
wow..great lighting ,composition and presentation.....very good Anne
Excellent dramatic light
Likes John Denver does he........Sunshine Anne. Super image. Ron.
like the way he is lit, whats his name ? lesley
This is so good.
I absolutely love this, so in line with a cat's nature. If there's a sunny spot, there you will find them.
Tricky light used to excellent advantage. Love the way it catches the proofile of the nose. Very clever shot, beautifully composed. Straight into favourites.
really beautiful capture, very well done
Fantastic close-up image.
Great detail & colour.
Very well captured, super lighting
Very nice image.
Amazing image Anne, love the lighting
I think this is teriffic. A little noisy in the larger version in the darker areas, but not to the point of putting me off. Although I think the blend from coulour to shadow areas is a bit harsh.
You did ask, I still love it
What a beautiful dragon Anne or is it a Liver Bird ??
Beautiful, the lighting is spot on.
This is so well taken. I love the splash on sunlight on him.
I have a cat named Flash too, and probably for the same reason.
He has a lighting streak of white down his back, and is a bob tail.
Nice use of the light
Beautiful light and composition Anne.
Very nice of you Flash, sitting still gave your photographer time to make an excellent portrait--- you also chose a wel lit place to nap, etc!
Such a great looking Kitty, did a mod, hope you approve, Chuck
I love the harsh lighting here.It makes for a super contrast in the image.If it was mine, I would feel like the cat that got the cream !!!!
Excellent work. Great Exposure work.
Nice use of available light. Cats are like photographers, always seeking a good patch of light
Fab light and superb capture of this little beauty.
p.s. well done on your passion flower in Best of Week Gallery congrats!
I love the outline created by the light
Thanks for your help with making links Anne. Sorry I hadn't got back to you until now.
It's for my wife!!!
She willl love it!
Super shot. Lovely lighting.
Very moody cat image and I love the side lighting the the gao in the doorway.
Superbly lit and captured
A purrrfect pose, and wonderful sunlight to enhance the fur.Love it!
Very photogenic cat! He is lovely and so is this photo
Thanks everyone - it's too hot here to stay out today, so taking some time to comment
Chuck, of course I approve of your mod - I think mods are great. It shows interest, and it's educational to see how others might view or improve on an image.
Had to click and earlier so...
2 great things. The 1st what a great shot and then secondly the processing is fantastic.
As you say about Mods it is great to see what others are achieving with the same kit.
Good eyes Anne, this is amazing image and shot.
I find this so atmospheric Anne, looks like he is hiding in the shadows either after or before a kill, thats my take on it.. great shot
Great lighting in this lovely shot. - gary
The light is a bonusto this nice little cameo.
Such a beautiful pic, love the way the light catches him. He couldn't be a better colour for this type of shot.
you caught Flash in the light just right, looks gorgeous
Pitt Bulls are illegal, they get round it by mixing the breeding here
" Summer and the living is easy " A fine capture . Lovely light glowing on the furry bits xxx
i absolutely love this capture, its awesome
A great use of light ...superb work..
This is gorgeous, just gorgeous...
Super light good work.
Great shot anne ,lovely light excellently captured excellent work well done regards
Like the lighting and tones in this Anne - great capture.
not a cat lover but a lovely shot all the same
A superb composition Anne.
If there is only a single beam hitting the floor - it is the spot where you find them - isn't it amazing?
Lovely image, like the interaction of light and shadow.
well seen image, nice one.
Love this shot - obviously taken by a cavalier photographer!! Breaks all the rules but still works a real treat. No rules about only lighting a cat from the front - when back lighting like this works so well. The shaft of light entering the darken room (from the assumed partly opened back door) backlighting this subject is spot on.
No hesitation giving this shot a click, smashing.
Superb work, I love the light.
Yes inspirational poem and have got the cartridge cases
What lovely lighting in this fantastic capture Anne.
good use of light and well exposed.
Wonderful image, beautifully captured.
That Zukio lens is working well. Great stuff
Love the lighting,lovely shot.
Wonderful light and colour, lovely image. Well done.
what a stunningly beautiful photo
so well done
Perfect lighting - Jude.
Just superb Anne. The light is brilliant.
The stream of light from the door is very effective.
Thanks everyone - and thanks for the modification Andy. I have a b&w and a duotone up my sleeve, but you beat me to it
Glad to see you back btw!
Excellent lighting effect.
Great shot Anne, been thinkg of ways to shoot our cat just might have to copy you
This is just wonderful Anne and superb composition and use of the light and shadows
Beautiful use of light and shadows Anne, a gorgeous capture.
This is a lovely study both of the cat and the beautiful light and shadows.
Thanks for all your comments! I'm chuffed as you all say on the other side of the pond
Willie thanks for the mod - I see you've made it completely square (I hesitated to crop so close to the other paw), and warmed it up.
I should probably upload the original shot - I duotoned this one and then put back the sunlit areas with selective color.
As I've said before, I consider modifications a great compliment, as they show interest. Also, it's a great way to learn.
This is a very very good photo Anne ..
really like this image Anne,
you have got the exposure just right, just enough light and shadow to work well
I keep coming back to look at this shot. It’s that shaft of light from the top right backlighting this subject that appeals to me. I especially like the light as it lands on the cats head backlighting the whiskers and the cats hair together with the light running up the ears with the rest of the face moving into the darkness. With 101 votes also needs one of those award things to finish off the job correctly. Well done and deserves it.
Thanks again everyone, and Dave, thanks so much for the User Award - it's a compliment, and much appreciated.
Beautiful, love the light and glad to make it 105.
Our parrot also likes to bathe in the sun in the morning. I like the warm colours and the way the sun has just caught the eye.
So well seen and taken Anne.........of course I looked at the large version!
