Sweet  Innocence

Uploaded: March 03, 2006


Photo No. 2 in a series titled "Life Of Wiley". To emphasize the color of Wiley's eyes and obtain a high-key effect, I desaturated and softened the photograph using Adobe Photoshop CS2.

Wow, I really like what you did with this photo!!! It is very cool how the only color is found in the eyes and they're blue, the "innocent" eye color :o). You did a really good job here! #2492286

I have been taken with high key photos lately and this is a great example. The coloring is just perfect. Can you tell me what kind of cat this is??? #2537957

Myra Vos March 16, 2006

Thanks for your nice comment Fran. Wiley is a Himalayan/Siamese mix with tons of character and a gentle sweet disposition. I have never met a cat quite like him. #2538572

Frances Saunders March 16, 2006

Thanks, Myra. He's quite gorgeous and your photo does him much justice, as I said. I just lost my precious tabby and this photo really moved me. #2539278
