Just Greystoke relaxing on the couch, clutching his weenie-dog catnip toy.
Processing was to use Silver Efex Pro to convert to duotone. Had to do some evening out of the lighting of the background with the clone tool and lighten his face a bit. The overlays are a scratched window and old film border below

The overlay is great here and I love the cool tones.. lol catnip is like crack for cats.. so the processing adds a bit of an inebriated feel to the image.. nice work.

This is really cool - that cat looks positively evil.

Oh, this is wonderful!! I couldn't think how to express what I wanted to say then saw Deb's comment. And that's it exactly!

Not a cat, but the essence of a cat. Love that scratched window overlay.

Super processing and use of overlays.

The blur gives it a nice dreamy feeling and I love the dark tones.

This image suggests rather than impose. The title gives us a hint and then we can "read" the image. Love the overlays and the cool duotone.

I love this. Faving it. :~)

I adore this. So dreamlike and otherworldly. Under water - behind glass... the cat's posture is outstanding.

amazing image colleen .. love the way the cat isnt sharp and in your face, nearly like a suggestion of a cat but not so much that he's unrecognizable .. just perfect actually .. love the posture and the way he's holding the toy .. your processing is brilliant .. should i say 'as usual' .. YES .. !!! ..:)
