Graphic Cat

I took a photo of Cody and pushed it to get this graphic result.  In Photoshop Elements 6, I used a sketch filter and tweaked the settings to get the exposure that I liked.  I burned out distracting background lighting.  The eyes were done on several layers.  The blue was applied, then the layer multiplied, lowered opacity and a hint of erasure.  I made a whisker brush and added a couple of whiskers to the left side.   Hope you like it!

Camera settings: Canon Rebel EOS T1i, F/5.6, 1/60 sec., ISO 400, focal length 55 mm.  Flash fired.

Cat On Windowsill

Though not now affiliated with any group for 2011, I will continue to post from time to time.  I hope a few of you will continue to stop by and share your thoughts.  Today, I took this photo of Cody in the window.  I took the shot by taking the reflection in the bathroom mirror.  Only natural light was used and only levels processing in Photoshop Elements 6.  Hope you all have had a great start to 2011!

Camera settings: Fujifilm FinePix S700, F/3.5, 1/120 sec., ISO 64,  focal length 13.2 mm.  No flash.
