Thanks all! My only concern was that people may want to see it centered (but I didn't). This is the original shot (except for the color conversion) and I loved it the way it was. Ya'll have just confirmed that the composition is fine! #3890828

You want him for $1000? LOL!! In the couple of months that I've had him he's chewed up two Ipod cords and TWO - count 'em - TWO Wacom Intuos3 pens!!! I can't edit photos right now cause I'm waiting for latest replacement pen to be shipped.... #3996406

Jagadeesh Andrew Owens 2/26/2007 7:15:15 AM

But I couldn't part with the little booger for any amount.... ;>) #3996417

Carol Teal 2/26/2007 3:00:16 PM

The price we pay (pun intended) for having these cute little pets! You should see what I had to do with my rocking chair to keep one of the cats from shredding the cane back (she already had done quite a bit of damage before I discovered it). It is wrapped in blankets like a mummy! And then there was the time my previous Siamese scratched on my beautifully engraved leather saddle after I had oiled it (must have been the smell that made her crazy). I cried over that one and really wanted to kill her at the time! #3998318

Holly Shao 2/27/2007 7:13:49 AM
