Mini Midge In the Sun

This one is a little different. It’s an impromptu snapshot of one of my mom’s cats (she was my cat when I was growing up, but now she’s a cranky old lady and tends to snub me when I visit).

It’s not a good photo per se. In fact it is an extremely flawed photo. Her tail being cut off is the most glaring error, But overall the composition is poor and the background is not pleasing at all. But this is the kind of result you can expect form an unplanned photo taken after hurriedly grabbing for the camera “before she moves!”.

I’m posting is here not as an example of a great photo, but as an example of how even a poor photo of a precious subject can be rescued with a little care and the right know how.

And yes, her name is actually “Mini Midge”. Don’t ask.

    :) just re read my comment :) It could have sounded very rude to some folk… in a way ;) not meant though ! …. cats just think they are special, especially the older ones who do not like to play around with string much any longer, I had one whom I called Duchess, she was a beauty, hence “Old Duchess” .
