A real shame it's not sharp stewart due to such a slow shutter speed. A good efort otherwise, i like the contrast between the eye and the black chair.

Thanks Mark. Sorry you don't like its lack of sharpness. It was intentional though! In this case it's the aperture as well as exposure time that stopped the body from being sharp. Smile

I'm sorry stewart I've just reread my thread and it should have said "A real shame the eye's not sharp" It would have so much more impact. Your intentional use of blur really creates a sense of motion.

Thanks Mark... Up until now, I had thought that the eye was sharp! Oh well. I'll just try again next time she steals my chair. (It happems more often than it should... it's almost as if she does it just to annoy me!) Wink

She's probably ticked off that you're stealing her chair all the time, Stewart! Cats, you know, merely allow us to live in their houses. I'm terribly sorry to say, this isn't my favorite breed of cat, and so they look less cute in my mind than others, which affects how I view pictures of them. I have to give you credit for thought involving use of intentional blur and composition. Have you tried selecting only the eye, then playing havoc with the unsharp mask and contrast controls?--Chris

Thanks for the coment Chris. I don't think I'm going to make any more changes to this one. Every time I do, I like it less and less! Smile
