Fine images, and impressive how effectively the OOF mesh has been eliminated.

Thanks, Joe. The "disappearing mesh" was mostly done in-camera by getting getting as close the the mesh as I dared and waiting for the cats to get as far from it as possible. The mesh then gets lost in the near-field bokeh. You can still see a hint of it in #2 and #4. A small amount of de-hazing and dark vignette were added in Light Room.

Cheers... Brian

P.S. The mesh was woven wire (about 3mm in diameter) in a 5cm chain-link pattern and pained a light tan

Kids... don't try this at home:

Felinus Maximus! The stare must be a Siamese thing?

Hi Kelly,

That's a great look; so serious! It's also something of a surprise to see someone looking so like Hugo (could be brothers!) and that you call him a Siamese. Hugo is a rescue cat with no formal breed history befe=ore we had him so we are always interested to hear of other peoples breed experience of cats looking just like him. We are pretty sure he's a Siamese but I suspect it'll always be something of a mystery.

Oh - and if we see 'USA Siamese' they tend to look very much like Hugo and Felinus Maximus so perhaps it a specific breed trait we weren't aware of until now.

Thanks for sharing this with us (me!) and take care.

Best regards, Neil.
