Sir Thomas, snoozing; represents one of my favorite simple pleasures - naps on the weekend!

Very little post processing. Bit of a crop, autolevels, a touch of NI, sharpening, resize. Oh, and desaturated yellow and cyan channels some. The white fur looks whiter that way.

Gave a 7 here - and I belive that I had the thought that this was yours. Good focus on his face and I love that the only color is the light pink of his nose. Makes me want to snooze myslef he looks so comfy. Maybe having his ears all the way in could have been nice but that is just a small nitpick. Either way I liked this shot.

Trading post...
I thought this was adorable. Beautiful lighting (how do you do that?) as always. And what a sweet little kitty he is too! The concept was very cute as well, who can resist an afternoon nap?
