    So my cat was lying in its usual sleeping place behind the neglected pile of garbage in our front garden, looking peaceful. And wouldn't you know it as soon as the camera came out it looked up and got rather pissed. This is the only decent photo I managed to take.

    Basically saturation was taken down by abou 80%, the top was cropped, the whole image was lightened and then curves were messed with to add a bit of contrast.

    Criticism please!

    Thanks

    Some criticism from friends was that the subject is unclear as the leaves are a bit obstrusive. Another thing they noticed by accident is apparently the colour sets the mood of the cat. It adds to the whole pissed expression. I don't quite see what they are talking about though.

    Also the cat is black and white :wink: (with a touch of light orange in the grey areas.
