A quick view of cattyal's recent activity.

  • Ledley

    Thanks everyone and thank you Ron for your award Smile

    Indeed we've pretty much got this black on black arrangement sussed - now I need a different coloured cat to play with though Ledley might not be too impressed if I brought another one into the house!

    A late and big thank you to everyone for your comments, clicks and awards Smile

    Rather annoyingly I can now see a light patch bottom left and bottom edge which is a nuisance but I can always tidy that up if I feel the urge another evening.

    Thanks everyone Smile I must get back to some other photos and not just of Ledley but he makes it so easy and he's so willing - as long as a few treats are forthcoming.

    Vivienne - Ledley and I have a photo session almost every evening so both he and I have had lots of practice Smile

    Thank you everyone and thank you Leo, Zoran, Michal, Alan and Mike for your awards - very much appreciated.

    Happily Ledley and I have a daily photo routine - every evening he charges upstairs into my studio and up onto the table ready. Of course a few treats come into the equation Smile

    Lighting is bounced - across the windows are cream blackout curtains so the main light is bounced off them and on the right the light is currently being bounced off one of those metallic windscreen frost protector doodahs.

    Quote:He does have a lovely expressive face and you capture it beautifully.

    Thank you he can pull some lovely and silly faces 

    Quote:Black is beautiful!
    A fine and stylish portrait!

    Indeed he is beautiful if a nuisance at times that leaves black fur all over the place!

    Quote:my 2nd favourite cat. Have he taken you over as his slave completely now?

    Yep Im accused of spoiling him but as far as Im concerned a happy cat is a peaceful life!

    Quote:That's it!! I'm selling my kit and just using the wife's iPhone 5, superb image....

    Thanks - the phone can produce some excellent images - and some rubbish ones Smile What I do like about is that I snap away and not get all involved in shutter speeds and apertures etc - it's fun

  • A beautiful portfolio of images and I can only apologise for not clicking on more of them! Now if I had just a bit of your imagination I'd be happy but shall just have to settle for what I've got Smile
  • A wonderful and inspirational selection of pictures. And I particularly like your current profile pic Smile
