that's a nice tiger you got there but OP wanted picture of your cat and not your tiger.

Hunky Bill dares you to say that to his face :)

Cat was in pretty rough shape when she showed up.  Most of here hair was gone, worms, no weight.  Doing fine now living the easy life.

To get back to the feline variety...

A formerly feral cat taken in by a friend in Maryland.  (The other two or three in his family decided that the cushy life beat living under a barn and eventually decided to move in, too.):

(I should have turned the ISO setting on the camera down; it wasn't THAT dark when I took it and it would have been much less grainy.  It's otherwise a decent picture.  |O)

Thanks!  I suppose I could say "I did that intentionally - it's art-y.  I wanted to add mood and ambiance to the image!"   ;D  <insert shite-shoveling smiley here>   ;)

Lots of photographers are actually a lot more down to earth than people realise. But they also know that judges are way up there in the clouds and think they know it all. The nice thing about your picture and I don't actually see much in the way of graininess is that the cat's face is in quite sharp focus while the rest of it is not so focused and the background is very out of focus which removes clutter. Selective focusing is a very well used technique in photography to get rid of a cluttered background and add significant to the main subject of the picture. When I was a member of a photography club I used to take in 2 competitions photos of the particular architecture that was in the area where I used to live in Italy. Not being very well known as the particular type of architecture only exists within a 15 mile radius the judges had never seen anything like it. Of all the judges that saw my photos most of them tried to guess at what it was and pretend to know what they were talking about only one said as his very 1st comment "I haven't got a clue what that is and I'd like the author to come and tell me during the break".

Yes, that one was shot with a 50mm f/1.2 that was wide open, so the depth of field is extremely shallow.  I find that I'm usually shooting either nearly wide open or stopped down to f/11 or smaller.  Most of my gear pics are taken at small apertures to get more in focus - the tripod is a huge help there with the long exposures needed in that case.

Selective focus and the ability to control DOF is definitely one place that the real camera shines over those in iPhones and the like.  Don't get me wrong, the phones take incredibly detailed photos, especially given their size, and I use mine frequently, but they're nowhere near replacing real cameras at this point as far as versatility and creativity go.  They're extremely convenient as well, which can bite you in the backside.  I wish I'd grabbed the SLR more often that the phone last year to get pictures of the kittens as they grew.  I'd do occasional bursts of pics with the camera, but most of the day-to-day stuff was with the phone because it was immediately at hand.  I could have gotten much better shots with the camera.  Oh well - live and learn.

Yes nothing will convince me to get rid of my DSLR but I seldom use it due to the nuisance.

She likes to lay like that on my arm, silly cat.  After a while my hand goes numb and I have to move her.

Various Siamese and Burmese we've had over the years love body heat and I've found them particularly adept at maintaining their balance while draped across your shoulders. Then they can get the heat, be close to you, keep an eye on you and best of all you'll then have your hands free.  ;D
