Photo Art Friday - "Two Eyes"


This is linked to Photo Art Friday were so many wonderfully creative images can be found.  This is my very simplistic submission... No textures, as I still need to learn them.  I just darkened the image through PhotoShop and played up the shadows in B&W.

Ahhh...these are so cute, and a great black and white capture, love the black against the white and white against black effect.

I love how they are sitting there side-by-side with the same pose. Wonderful!

Kerry ... I was on the stairway dangling a string and they didn't want to leave the sunny spot by the door.

Well done. The subject material is delightful. How fun that they both were posed so perfectly next to each other and the BW worked so well. Love it.

Gorgeous! The kitties are such perfect subjects and perfect for the black/white effect.

You did and awesome job getting them to pose. Perfect editing! I chase my cat's around all the time with my camera. NEVER got a shot like that. Well done

I love the in between length of coat on your black and white ! stunning guys!

Margaret said...

They are characters and I adore them. Breaks my heart that my husband is (very) mildly allergic to them and they can't sleep on my bed. But, what a wonderful guy to let me have TWO.

Thank you, everyone. They are house kitties and spend a lot of time "stalking" birds and chipmunks from the opposite side of the glass :)

Bonnie said...

Always love your photography and the shadows and creative accent of one eye from each cat is charming.
So glad you joined us here at PAF Margaret.

this is just beautiful; I can see it on a canvas

Pat said...

It's hard to beat B&W - no distractions - my favorite type of photo.

Christine said...

Love this, a cat always has a sense of her surroundings, in the dark, as she stalks, even while she sleeps, she is a mysterious animal, no?

lisa said...
