My turn for critique. Taken awhile back- Naptime. Don't like the blanket but I lack the PS skill for that one.

best i can do with removing the blanket and sharpen of the nose with CS5

Thanks, TL. The water flow is real w/o a CP or ND. That shot was 1/2 sec @ f/22. I would have liked to shoot with a larger aperture, but wanted to keep my exposure around half a second.

Excellent portrait, Tim. I take it she knew you were taking her picture? How were you able to get so close? No security around the set?

Cutie indeed.

Looks like you were on the set to get a shot like that.

The details really make this shot, along with the soft light to facilitate it. Also, being nice and tight gives you a perspective that you can't really see unaided with you eye. All of that makes for an attractive shot.

Your techniques worked here.

You need a bigger target. If you don't mind, my version attached below.

You can't do much sharpening with F2.8 as close as I was to the cat. Thanks.

From the smirk on her face I bet there was another "zoom" you were having trouble hiding.
