[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The black cat. Object of a wide range of superstition around the world, related either to good fortune or, as most people in western civilization know, to bad luck, ill omens and of being witches' favourable sidekick.

This is my pet cat Noir, its very hard to capture him in good exposure because he is, well... black and he is young and dosen't stand still for a second out in the yard :)
I like his expression here very much, and thought this would be a different picture of a cat.

On PP: Lightroom, converted to B&W, some channel mixing, dodge and burn, split toning with blue tint.

Hope you enjoy.

Hi Lauro, I concur with your note. If one sees the black cat on 13th and it happens to be a Friday......bad luck....believe or not. Chilly eye expression with good details. B/W conversion just perfect for the superstition feelings. Great choice for the Theme. Thank for sharing

Hi Lauro,
This sure is a different picture of a cat. I have looked some more at your portfolio and it is clear that you are a photo artist and much more than just a snapper. Well done and do continue with your art.

Hi Lauro...this is a nice shot. Excellent focus with a nice tonal range.


This is an awesome picture of your cat. I love his eye. He is very interested in something.
