This is Tigger, the cat I rescued just after Christmas.
Animals are a new subject for me..but I can see the fun/challenge in it already!
Taken outdoors a few days ago- natural light
Slight crop, clarified and I sharpened + saturated his eyes some
(didn't do anything to the actual color).
Thanks for looking!!

    Outstanding cat portrait, Jennifer...animals are difficult to capture because they normally don't "pose" for us...super work, young lady!!

I can see that your talent for bringing out the glow in your portrait subjects is extending into the animal world, Jennifer!
Excellent capture, especially considering Tigger's a cat. They are notorious for lightning moves --- AWAY from the camera!
