What’s New Pussycat?

We are back in the world of AfterBeforeFriday Forum and I have a special treat for this week.

There is a colony of stray cats living in my street. A nice lady is taking care of them, feeding them daily, taking them to the vet when needed. My Berta doesn’t like cats…ok, she likes to chase them, but I never let her. In retaliation, some of the cats climb at my windows and tap at the glass, teasing her.

This is one of the local rascals. I was walking around my neighborhood with 70-300 mm lens and when I stumbled upon her, I took few photos. I was afraid she would run away if I came closer, because Berta was with me. So, this is the closest I could get.

With a little help from the editing program, I managed to crop it closely and extract the details of her fur and whiskers. Softening the background and increasing contrast and sharpness proved to be a good combination. I warmed it a little bit, just to get that nice, autumny feel.

So, that would be all from me for this week. Please, be so kind and check other participants and all the information about the ABFriday Forum on Ben’s blog Aperature64.
