p-man, thanks. Ralph is a very photogenic character. His eyes are very close to that yellow-green. The Tak is a pretty warm lens, so the yellow is brought out a touch, no PP to enhance it though.
thx

Proof that lightning doesn't strike twice I wanted to get more or less the same shot as the one on the previous page, only from closer in but when cats' eyes are wide open they are invariably also fidgety as hell! Add to that manual focusing (I quickly gave up on autofocus, and the shot on the previous page is manual focus as well) and it's a lesson in tedium.

Anyway, I got this shot off, more for the iris than the cornea.


PS: I just realized, looking at this shot that uploading my photos to photobucket washes the color out slightly. Anyone use photobucket or see this with another picture sharing site? What's up with that?

@brian33: possibly because your image viewer applies a color profile to the image, and your web browser doesn't

Two from me:

A700, Sigma 50 mm f/1.4 HSM, f/1.4 1/80s ISO200, WL flash




A700, Sigma 50 mm f/1.4 HSM, f/4 1/80s ISO200, WL flash

Before I get too far off target both of your cat's eye shots are sweet. Good work.

I haven't used photobucket, but have the same frustration with Zenfolio.

Thanks GC. that's about a 70% crop taken with my 85 1.4 wide open, F20 flash bounced.

BTW Brian, I am envious of your close-up pics of your cats eye... our cats are far too skittish to get away with that.

I haven't contributed to this thread recently, but I thought I should let everyone know that our Iailuu is still alive and well (and a bit sleepy:) ).

Well... it seems I was ill-spoken :(
Iailuu has had some trouble lately, we initially thought it was caused by a cold. However, the situation didn't improve after a few shots at the vet, it actually got worse during this weekend. He lost his appetite, didn't visit his litter-tray too much, whatever he ate he vomited afterwards :(
We had some analysis done for blood and urine, and as it turns out, he has developed kidney stones. Actually, a somewhat milder form, we call it 'kidney sand' in Romania, but I'm not sure what the correct English translation is.

We've started treatment for it yesterday evening, the doctor said it will take about 8 months until his system is cleared, during which time he's not allowed his favourite food, fish (probably he won't get it later on either). Along with the special diet he has now, he has to undergo perfusion each evening, at least until the 24th. Quite the Christmas present for him, what can I say... :(



Anyways, here are a few pics I took this morning, with A700 and 85G. Probably too contrasty for some, but I think the PP is caused by the distress we feel these days:


#1 (I love the colours of the Minolta, IMHO it's more pleasing than the 100/2 I had, not to mention the FL is more comfortable on APS)



#2



#3 (they had to cut his fur on the leg where the perfusion needle goes, it's barely visible here and in the next one)



#4   (an attempt at cross-processing with Nik ColorEfex, nothing to write home about, but fits the context, I think)
