Quiet Reflection by zilla774 Quiet Reflection by zilla774
This is one of my two cats, Coco, she is a 15 year old Chocolate Persian, and an absolute princess. This picture was taken whilst I was working on another submission in my study. The light is a small 40w gooseneck which sits behind my screen giving a splash of backlighting to my work area. Coco jumped up onto the desk and sat 'sunning' herself, staring right into the light taking in its warmth. It was such a great opportunity and such a great shot. I managed about a dozen shots before she got in a huff and started to lick herself :)

Taken with my Canon Powershot G6. The image is completely untouched apart from the addition of the frame. The original image is enormous and the detail is fabulous. I'm not one to normally submit my photography, as my gallery shows ;) but this was too great a shot not to post. It completely captures the colour and mood of my precious 'ickle Coco.

She's got many years of life left in her yet, but I dread the day she goes, because I will miss her terribly.

It's late, I'm sleepy, and all I really want to say here is: your cat is a Wookie.


Which means you win, obviously. :thumbsup:

Magnificent catch, you would think you spent hours setting up the composition. Light is lovely, and the cat is perfect also... the picture is not blurry at all, which cam do you use?

Nice... I love the colors and warmth!

BTW, I notice your copyright is "(c).zilla774.2004", and I just wanted to point out that correct and legal copyright structure would be: "2004 zilla774". If you're on a PC, you can hold down ALT while typing "169" on the numpad to get the copyright symbol... Because although the copyright laws are now designed so that putting the copyright on the object in question is more for the people viewing it, rather than staking the legal claim (i.e. law now rests on your side by default, rather than away), the legal structure of the copyright is clearly and tightly defined... A lot of typing for a small thing, but I try and spread the word as I can. :-)

Adorable. I know the feeling you have towards her. My daughter and I feel the same about our cat, Girl. She's so much a part of the family, it's unreal. ^_^ This is warm and lovely. She's stunning in those colors and that light brings out much of her color. Excellent shot.
