Challenge: Pet Portrait II (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Date: Dec 9, 2006
Aperture: 8.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/250
Galleries: Candid, Animals
Date Uploaded: Dec 9, 2006

Subject is Ivy, my female Ocicat.

Lighting -- one Alien Bee 400 strobe shot through a large white diffuser panel

Before shooting this image of Ivy, I spent 20 minutes searching frantically throughout the house to find the cat. After almost giving up the search and putting my equipment away, Ivy made her appearance and consented to be photographed.

She has supervised the post processing of this image, from her seat on my lap.

You're absolutely right -- she's on Ocicat! What colors are your Ocis?

clearr. top ear should not be cut off like that, but a good shot.

7 - Nice clarity. Works as is, but do wonder about the ear not chopped. Perhaps a more refined crop on the left too, where the darker fur comes in.

Great focus and eye detail would like it better with the whole ear.

amazing sharpness and detail, especially in the eyes.
just wonder what this circle on her/his nose between the eyes could be...
however, one of the best i've seen so far

Nicely done. I like the diagonal tilt of his/her head. Good detail of the whiskers. Beautiful eyes. Wonder what thoughts are going through that head! 7

Eyes look a little oversharpened, especially the cat's left one (or just naturally speckly, maybe?) Nice pose and lighting.
