    Absolutely fantastic! More than deserving of the EC and RC -- thanks for sharing

    I might add -- this shot is a little bit of proof that it doesn't require expensive equipment to get a good shot. This was taken before I got my SLR, using a Canon PowerShot (A590 IS) that cost $106. Of course, it wasn't easy; even at ISO 400 (as high as I could go with a P&S) the exposure if I remember correctly was 0.8 seconds, so this was an excercise in waiting for that cat to stay still long enough. Also, this is handheld, so the IS certainly saved the day on this one.

    Thanks for linking to this one. I do prefer it to the other "topaz" shot

    I looked up "Topaz Detail" on the web and didn't really like the effect on their samples either. It's too much of a distraction here for my tastes. For example, look at the freshly mown grass on the upper right -- the contrast is so high that the lines in the grass just look very unnatural. The contrast in the light/dark panels on the building itself seems too high as well. The overhanging foliage from above only works to draw my attention to this even more.

    I think this image would work a lot better for me if you were to move over to the right a bit (so you'd have a little more of a straight-on picture), come out from under the tree some, and go easy on the "topaz detail" effect.
