Thanks Titus. The cat was pretty angry at the time, I guess it worked out well for the shot

Agree with Dave
My only quibble is that DOF is too shallow, with the right eye in focus but not the left.
What is the EXIF data? (Tried to access your Flickr site but you have set it to private so no-one can access it)


cheers, Paul

Being a little further from your subject, the DOF issue lessens (if the cat was 20 m away there would be no issues of different focus of the eyes:-))
Nice picture, the his ears are cut.


cheers, Paul

Thanks for you input guys.
The second shot was taken about 10 feet away while the first one was much closer. I used TV setting on for both pics as I was afraid he would suddenly move. Oh and yes, I had to crop his ears otherwise my son's hand would haven been in the pic.

Paul, your pics are amazing! I hope one day I can become a good a photographer
