The cat decided to be photogenic today. I took this with my 70-200 at 200mm. Feel free to critique anything and everything about it. I think this is the best one of the series, but I do have the rest of them on Flickr in my signature.

I acually like IMG_6455.jpg and IMG_6443.jpg the best out of the set IMG 6443 is good because the entire cat is int he shot. Cats can be tricky to photograph.
NIce set...

Thanks for taking the time to look through the others. I picked this one because it made the rest of my family go "wow." She is a very difficult cat to photograph; she is such a dark, uniform black that its almost impossible to not completely blow out the background, and autofocus has a lot of trouble focusing on her for the same reason.

i like 6441 actually.

black cats are difficult to shoot, well, all cats actually.. lol. you did very well - i just hate how the kitty is cut off a lot but i know that cats tend to move around a lot so that can be difficult, although i see he was rather stationary....


this is a little bizarre but he looks exactly like my max - all the way down to the 3 white hairs on his chest.
