Well, I said I’d show them, and here they are …

31 Jul

Not very good quality, I’m afraid, but I think they’re presentable.
These are prior to the two last ones on the previous post, where I had corrected the problem. Somehow, the flash output had gotten set down too far, without my realizing it, and the pics were coming out ‘way too dark. Like a jerk, I was running the ISO sensitivity up, trying to compensate, which didn’t compensate at all, but did succeed in introducing a lot of noise. I could almost listen to my pictures. Anyway, the problem seems fixed, now (see the last post), but these were made (and Photoshopped like crazy, I might add) before that.
And, on a sunny day, he finds the shelf I made under the window to be a comfortable roost:
And another flash pic:
That’s it … I reckon they’ll be better in future …
Cheers, all!

      Thanks, Dare. I’ve tried to socialize him, and some of it has taken.

      Cats are good friends, Rania … and they help to control pests.

    Very cute! My daughter brought a cat back from college, so we are adjusting to the new resident in our home.

        Sad to say, our dog died of bone cancer a couple years ago.

    That’s too bad … it was a pretty dog, as I recall. I think I miss my dog more than my parents, and about as much as my daughter.

    I like this particular series. 🙂 Lots of soft fluff.

      Despite the noise, eh? I did my best to minimize it, but it still bothers me.

        🙂 It is the composition of the subject. The basic material, not the ‘noise’ that makes me appreciate this. The first photo is artistically rendered, the second is so tangible, real.

        “A compulsive’s work is never done.” Could this also read, “A perfectionist’s work…?”

        That’ll work, too.
