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.
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
