Great use of B&W in this image, Jean, it really enhances the detail and facial expression in that furry feline! #445141

Thanks, everyone! This was the first cat show where I brought along my camera...it was fun photographing different kinds of cats for a change. Unfortunately, my camera's ISO setting was accidentally left on the very high setting of 1600 so most of my shots were pretty much wasted. I'll be posting some more of them just cuz.... I've been using a couple of programs to remove some of the noise, NeatImage and Noise Ninja (on different pix)....anyway, this one looked much better to me in b&w! Glad you liked it! (PS Patricia, no cash exchanged hands...but there was a very nice and talented official photographer Chanan, so it would have been bad form to take pix and make any money from them....great fun though taking them just for me and you guys! Thanks for the good wishes!) #445147
