    I think this is very artistic, Jean-François! This is made even stronger by the late evening light!!

The end of another day...time to call it quits..the sun casting it's late evening light saying goodbye for now. I love this! And I will go so far as to say I believe you have a winner!

Very different picture with some great lines and really neat lighting. I think, Dolores might be right!

Really nice, Jean- Francois. This has good lines and perspective of depth, for such a tight frame, good eye!

Terrific, JF! I agree with everyone else - the great angles, the great light and a title that says it all ... as you point out, the CAT ATTITUDE! Kerry

Hehe, thanks Suzie !
I already know as you are in the cat side :), cant you feel how I suffered from its attitude when making this shoot !

Thank you very much for your kind comment, Kerry ! I cant wait to being your student next week, but please, never give me an assignement on shooting cats :)

Hi again JF: I'm looking forward to this new class, too! Also, DON'T WORRY: As the "servant" of five cats, including a Siamese, I definitely know NOT to give out an assignment involving cats! Kerry

Hehe, thanks Kerry :)
I see as you used the word "servant", its so right !
I read somewhere (hope my translation is good) : "The dogs have Masters, the cats have slaves*, but I'm sure after readind your Bio, that you already know this :)

JF,

Another finalist! You are incredible!!! I love this shot! Just the other day, I took a photo of a cat walking away but it didn't turn out like this! Wonderful!

So, you ARE taking another class this time. One of Kerry's, I assume. I'm taking the one of Zuckerman's, Mastering Light. So which one are you taking?

I will miss seeing all your photos, but will have to check the contests to see what your doing.

Have a GREAT one! And...a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to you. You have really used Line and Texture and Dramatic lighting here. I love it!

Congrats on this very, very good and unique picture. I love your title.

If you are looking for a photo with Danish people in their environment, then check out the new uploads. Somewhere between 5 and 10 there is a photo by a photographer, whom I know quite well, called Søren Gülck.

Thank you very much to everyone, your kind words going straight to my hearth !

One said that the cats have 9 lives, perhaps that will give me the chance to photograph it one day of face :)
