Most expensive cat photo?

Is this the most expensive cat photo yet? I can't imagine anyone topping that combo for cost.

Re: Most expensive cat photo?

It does bird shots also, this one taken from around 100 meters away.

Perfect...

...Just perfect.

This seems to be a serious, serious camera. I am eagerly awaiting samples from other "accredited" fellow DPR users.

(...Those other impressive 2 bird-over-the-water ones are also from the 1DX, right?)

Re: Perfect...

Sorry for the late reply PK - yes they are from the 1DX plus 800L f5.6, as are these two ...

Both hand held.

More Pussy

A very heavily cropped image (more than full body). Taken with a 20D and 18-55 IS kit lens. Even cropped so much l got a really nice 8x10 print of my Maine Coon cat.

Re: Perfect...

Impressive combination. Great bird shots. What are you using for PP? DPP?

Re: Perfect...

l see no birds in the picture, she has eaten them all. l use DPP then transfer to PS for a bit of fine tuning.

Re: 1DX - 800L f/5.6 - Cat

It is unfair to assume all members own a cat. I personally hate them.

On a different note, nice camera, and very nice work!

Back focus! The cat's nose & whiskers are sharp, but eyes are slightly out of focus.
Hey, somebody has to do the dirty work, keeps the the tradition of this forum.

Happy shooting!

You hate them because they won't come when you want them to or because they kill wildlife?
