Sam- Good morning to you. I think this is one of the most beautiful pictures I have seen where the fract filter was used to such outstanding perfection. The SC of the eyes was such a sensational touch. Just love the overall look and it seems to bring out the mysterious ways of a cat. Colors are stunning and gorgeous. Lighting and clarity are superb. Details highlight every fabulous feature.
Exquistite work Sam.
Have a most fabulous day, take care, be safe. #5810293

Thanks everyone! I didn't mean to resubmit this image. It was a 2nd place winner in the Digital Darkroom Category for April. Somehow when I tried to change my self portrait to this image, it was resubmitted to the contest accidently. I didn't want to delete the image because I would lose my winning emblem. Oh well, I guess I lost it anyway! #6345153
