Thanks, everyone! I took this as I was about to leave after photographing Joyce's cat for a fundraising calendar. I think she's really beautiful so I asked her if I could snap a couple of quick photos of her. The lighting is open shade (she's standing in a doorway) on a sunny day. I used the Midnight filter in Nik Color Efex Pro, desaturated it & increased the contrast to get this effect. #2825176
