Mothers everywhere are the same: concerned for the safety of their children.
This is a shot of the mother cat glaring balefully at us after we (once again! the nerve) snuck a peek at her kittens.
The bottom image is straight out of camera (well, raw converted to jpeg, don't think I can upload raw files to blogger). The top image I did my basic edits: color, contrast, sharpness, then I wasn't really happy with the position of the cat, so I took the image into Photoshop and stretched the background a little. I also darkened the background to put the focus on the cat. Too much? What do you think? Is that red in the background distracting? I kind of like it, but it does pull the eye away.
