This picture is good. It has taken the prize in other contests I have seen. Are the eyes enhanced or natural? #4186

Hi everyone... just wanted to let everyone know that this is my cat's true eye color. I adjusted the contrast slightly... but other than that... this is right out of the camera. It also won 3rd place in Popular Photography's Annual International contest.... so I am quite happy with my cat "Thumper"... he's a good boy!!

Happy Holidays everyone..

Hi Vicki..
Thanks for the compliment.. as far as the next contest... I'm not sure when that will be. This last one was in July 2001 issue of Pop Photography. They had an entry form in the magazine. Hope that helps =)
