I initially photographed this for the black and white but didnít like it as his little pink nose and blue eyes just didnít convey as well in black and white.

Final: WOW! My first blue, who would have thought an outtake from one challenge would do so well. Thank you all for your super generous votes and kind words.

Erin!!! Wow!!! This just may be the prettiest cat photo (and that's saying alot since they photograph so well) I have ever seen! You made an excellent choice to not "black and white" those incredible eyes and cute pink nose! Congratulations!

This is truly spectacular. All that white is NOT easy to do! When I saw it, I had a feeling it would get a ribbon that would match it's eyes. :)
