Excellent first post, Colin. Sharpness and detail in the fur is superb. Nice work.

Welcome on TN Colin.

Great first post - it shows so much intensity. Great colours, excellent dof showing a lot of details in the fur, clever handling of a difficult light and a perfect cropping/composition. - Well done and Happy New Year.

Welcome here to TN Colin and your first post is great. It has attitude in it and is sharp as well.

IVery well done and thanks for posting. May you and your family have a wonderful and prosperous new year. I hope to see lots more of your work in the new year.

And he looks likes he's deciding if you'd be good for lunch! What a lovely, crisp, clear shot. I don't think you could have gotten any closer!

Great Colin! Superb pose and face of this cat. Welcome to TN!

Hi Colin, welcome to TN.
As I dont have much time lately I chose one of your 4 shots posted and this is the most interesting, the pose is very good. The moody light on the face gives a nice mistery feeling to the shot. I like the compo with the face on the corner, but maybe the crop is a bit too tight with the ear almost touching the frame.
Nice work, thanks for sharing.
