Oh...wow! This is my strongest finish yet! Thank you so much for all of the nice comments and scores. I knew I was taking a chance entering a white on white in a color on color challenge...but I had seen others do it in past challenges, so I thought "what the heck?" I haven't been around in awhile and I was anxious to get back in the game!

This is Sagwa again...you saw her in the Pet Portrait II challenge as well. She obviously did better here! She is a Ragdoll...we adopted her from some friends of ours. She is so beautiful and wonderful to photograph. She's quite a bit "snitty" though. She loves to hang out in my studio when I have clients and supervise.

This portrait was taken in pure natural window light with my 5D. I love, love, love the combination of that camera and natural lighting!

Raw conversion
and a little bit of USM.
Oh...and a little bit of soft diffusion vignetting around all but her face.

By far the best photo of the challenge, I really am wow'd by this, and the fact that it really isn't color on color put this lovely image in the top 20 instead of being on the podium where it belongs! Great job!

Really beautiful photo -- stunning. I don't see how this relates to the challenge though. The blue eyes are against the gray fur, and the gray ears are against a white background.

I like the use of the cat and how her blue eyes are really visable and stand out.

white is not a color, since it has no hue.
02/28/2008 05:11:24 PM
