Colour is SOOC but cropped and a bit of sharpening.

Fanie, when I look at him in Lightroom he looks quite sharp, but I see what you say and I can't explain it! 

 

Fons, no but I need a new gate. :D

Clicked up he looks quite sharp to me.

 

Have you tried cropping in a bit?  I think he would stand out more with that.

 

He is quite a special cat, and clearly knows how to look after himself.

Thanks Anthony, it is already a heavy crop so I don't think it can take a further crop! I had a 23mm f1.4 on and it was a grab shot! 

 

Believe you me Dave is catered for very well, as my neighbour Julie panders to his needs with a warm bed and food and a tickle! He seems very afraid of men, leading us to believe he was badly treated at sometime by a man. In the picture he's got his winter coat so looks quite bushy!

Thanks, Mike, that 23 mm is impressive.

 

Good to know that Dave is not entirely on his own.

 

Have you seen the film A Street Cat named Bob?  I recommend it.

Anthony, now that you mention it I have heard of the film but not seen it. I shall search it out!

Cat pretending to be a lion, and almost carrying the ploy off, eh?

Yesterday, Dave the cat was very unsharp on my screen, to the point where his eyes could not be distinguished.

Today, Dave is perfectly sharp.
what's going on?

Having a look on my laptop now, he sure looks much better.

The image has not been touched! Strange.

 

Fanie, I will tell Dave he's looking good now. :D

I Looked at the photo on my Samsung Note6 the first time, laptop the second time. 

 

Going back to the Note, its still unsharp, but when you click up its fine.

Retina and high res screens will have resolution issues with the smaller versions of photos posted here. Basically they are re-sampling the small version to display in an enlarged viewport. I have noticed this with a few customer devices when I design websites.

A cat's gotta do what a cat's gotta do ... not an easy job though :)

 

Well done Mike!

Thanks Luc, but it's down to the X-T2 much more than me! 

 

I quite like the way that Dave is merging into the brick wall. :D

You're being too modest Mike. You saw the possibilities of that image, photography is basically about the sense to perceive and that you did well!
