Thanks everyone for coming to view my kitty! He was actually laying in my suitcase (on my clothes) taking a nap when I disturbed him with my camera!

BOY, the entered photo sure turned out huge. I want expecting that!

Anyway, Glad you like it. It was fun to make.

Hi Everyone! WOW!!! What a terrific surprise!!!

ALL VERY MUCH FOR COMING BY TO CONGRATULATE ME and MY KITTY!
(God rest his little soul. We lost him in May. He was 18.)

He was the most amazing cat I have ever had the honor to know.

His name was LUCKY BOY. He got a Finalist when he was alive, too, and I was unable to explain it to him then as well as now but I am so so pleased that he and I got this honor today.

Thank you all again and Thank You Better Photo. I really enjoyed making this image.

This is a marvelous piece of art, Laura, and just a wonderful example of your creativity and imagination! Your DD work has always amazed me. I have owned this filter for quite some time, but never used it - and I even have 2 cats!!! I am definitely going to try it out now! But am thrilled to see this with a BIG GOLD BADGE! MANY, MANY CONGRATULATIONS!!!

THANK YOU Pictures, Images and Photos

ALL VERY MUCH!!!! You know, the Frac filter looks great on cats, birds, dogs, wood and many things, (have any ZOO images? GO FOR IT!) but truly it's hit and miss. It's a tricky thing. You have to have patience and HOPE! Lol!!!
(And to know when to stop and try another image!!! FOR SURE!)

This is a huge honor and sharing it with you makes it even better!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!!

-Laura :D

P.S. I'm proud to be surrounded by so many talented people. Many of you have truly helped me to grow over the years and I am eternally grateful for this!
