A Girl and Her Cat

Just seemed an internet thing to do, what with cats being the main reason we even have an internet... :-)

Beauty. That cat is a real Weimaraner.

Think that should read "only reason" Thanks very for that and a happy Sunday to you.

Just wonderful. I especially like the one of the cat in the box with the girl lying on it. And yes, Tiny, the internet was originally invented for us to share cat pictures and videos.

i can't let this sort of inaccuracy stand. the Internet was invented by the military to create a decentralized network impervious to foreign attack.

The world wide web was invented to share cat pictures and videos.

My cat can't read or paint. I feel like such a failure.

Such a stickler for detail... ok fine. But cats took over the internet as well, so it wasn't all that impervious....

Just gorgeous...love that.

Thank you for sharing that 21_F.gif Melethia. Just gorgeous.

I thought I'd posted here yesterday. Wonderful series. Weimaraner cat indeed :-)

That is a bloody big cat! I did enjoy that viewing experience - makes me wish I'd've done the same with my kids when they were younger. Wouldn't quite have the same effect now.

It makes no difference to me what B&W treatment the pictures got but the series has no appeal for me since they look to be contrived composites.

anyone care to take that up? I did wonder here and there...
04/09/2013 01:12:21 AM · #19
I agree with 31_N.gif Olyuzi. I enjoyed looking at the first couple but then it became clear hat they were very cleverly done composites and the series immediately lost its appeal. Without that genuine connection between cat and child it became meaningless.

I totally agree. They are composites, and not up to Gyaban's standard. Ruined it for me as well.

Composites? Dang, and they were so wonderful.
Guess I'll have to go look at them again (and again)
to make sure those smiles they evoked
were for genuine realism.

For those of you who say that these being composites "ruined" it for you, why?

I assume that all of you edit your photos in the computer. Do you make them more mundane?

Does the idea that the sunset wasn't really that color also "ruin" it for you? or the thought that there were powerlines running through that otherwise pristine landscape also "ruin" the photo for you?

Do Gyaban's composites hold up for you only because they are so fantastical? If he made a realistic composite, would that also be "ruined"?

What happened to simply accepting an artist's execution of his vision for what it is and not requiring it to be a documented reality?

Kinda.

The connection you refer to being made meaningless was, in part or in total, created by the compositing, but for almost all photos (save perhaps straight, uncropped photojournalism), the feeling and/or effect is created by some manner of editing, be it a boost of saturation, HDR, cropping, spot editing or even compositing elements between photos. Why are these different?
