Relaxed??

Relaxed??
Relaxed??
The way cats sprawl across any available surface and go to sleep never fails to amaze me.
I used PhotoFiltre's "more shadows" and the clone tool to remove distracting background. Saturated color and sharpened photo.

Happy Shooting

  You have yourself a winning picture here my dear friend. This is so cute and adorable the way the cat is spread out along the blocks. I love how long and sleek its body is and you are so right about the way they can sleep anywhere and on anything. The blocks add a beautiful design to the picture. Love the gorgeous colors and details and the finishes that you use worked beautifully. Gorgeous, winning work my dear friend. You take care, be safe, have a wonderful day.

  Like others my first response it that I MUST begin my comment with "OH!"...

Oh, how I would love to be able to relax like this kitty! :)))

That was my thought. :)

Now for technicals!...

OH! How I would love to sit with you and have fun in DDR! Removing distracting BG's and making masterpieces! :) !

You did a great job, Mare. You made us all dream!
