the strength in this image is this cat's strong, dead-centered stare into the camera, accentuated by the shallow depth-of-field and sharp focus. nicely captured. ~ illona

Photographers Comment

Thanks for appreciating my work! This closeup was shot in Padua (Italy) using a Nikon d800 body and Nikkor 300mm/f4 lens, and portraits Tigrino (i.e. "small tiger"), a curious and cuddly cat from the neighbourhood, whose hide shows an interesting texture with muted tones. Postprocessed using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
