Have to agree with Peter_Oak. A really superb cat shot. Zoo shots sometimes cause all kinds of problems with wire etc. but this one is perfect.

I like it for the pose, - its very good and unusual.

It can be improved quite a bit with a small amount of work.

1. The image is extremely noisy, as you can see in the background. This is easily removed with Noise Ninja.

2. Theres a lack of contrast, againg a small curves adjustment makes a big difference.

3. It can benefit from a tad of sharpening.

4. Those great eyes can be lightened a tad.

I have uploaded a mod with all of this applied, - hope you like it and find this useful.

You are welcome Mike.

Levels in Elements 6 does a similar job as curves too, - so give it a try.
