    I was walking upstairs and saw my cat just kinda chillin in the light from the window, so i went and quickly grabbed my camera and snapped a couple shots :) I had a little patience to be able to catch the one of her yawning (#2), but it was totally worth it. If you look at it up close, you can see some saliva on the side of her mouth. I thought it was pretty funny!!!

    These were my first ever shots with RAW, so it was a little different for me. Let me know what you think of the shots in general!!!

    Hmmm. I do see it in #1. She didn't really wanna stay in one good place to shoot from haha. Had to wing it.
    But I did crop #2, I just tried to leave the shadow in there.. I thought it kinda made her pop out

    hahahah! Yea... focus is pretty good.. and you captured your cat's personality pretty well.. some of those shots are funny. Unfortunately because of the really bright areas in the photo (sun) which are blown (burned out)... the rest of the photos are badly underexposed. If you had used flash.. this would not have been near as bad. I did download and correct one of them.. just to show you the difference when you bring the exposure up some. Part of the difference may be that you don't have your monitor calibrated. Practice trying to avoid shots where there is BRIGHT light on a part of the subject like this.. or frame it to miss the bright part. Or use flash (or reflector) to try to balance the light levels better.

    You can see that in bringing up your cats face to a reasonable exposure, it really BLEW the highlights. You might can save some of these with a crop to get rid of the blown areas on the original shots.. and bring the exposures up a good bit, and sharpen them a touch. hope that helps!

    I really think #1 is the best of the bunch...fun...the cat looks 3-legged, but the shadow shows otherwise!
