Thanks to TL, (thank you Adam!), I am proud to introduce our feline star (she would hate me for using other words) USCHA, 10 months old Norwegian Forest Cat (in Norwegian, Skogkat). They are supposed to be very good hunters and are not afraid by snow. I tried to explain that mice, or whatever, don't run in the snow, but she wanted to have a try. Although being more on the dog side, I'm seduced by this lovely little thing and it's very soft presence in our home.

This is a very nice picture of your cat, well composed and I like the position of the cat. Very well done. Beautiful cat!!!

What a stately stance this very regal cat has. The altertness in his face, and that hunting pose has been captured first class.
Love the way the snow is on his body, he must have enjoyed his winter exploration..... my cat also thinks she is a dog, and rummages through the snow.

On dirait qu'elle pose. Très bonne exposition sans que la neige soit surexposée et permettant de voir tous les détails et couleurs de votre mignonne. Vraiment magnifique photo.

Great shot of a really impressive cat. Good pose, composition, exposure and lovely and sharp. Great work, Peers! Reminds me of my cat Otto I had in the Azores!

Peers, I just adore this shot, how beautiful, and no wonder she has captured your heart. She is stunning and the setting is wonderful, great shot, well done!

Excelent shot. Very simple and very beautiful. I like the cat pose. Well done :)

Très bon cadrage et cette patte gauche légèrement levée donne du dynamisme à l'image.
Bien vu Jean Michel.

Vov ) Mais quelle belle... la veritable reine neigeuse ....Une photo admirable )

Ooo, another cat shot was my first thought - I wonder when TrekCat will be announced? Then I looked at it and thought, wow, this is actually really good! You've done very well to capture her against the snow, and I love the composition with her filling the frame but almost with a "wild" appearance. That's one classy cat!

Technically you've done very well to capture detail against the snow, but I think you can bring out a little more with contrast masking - since I liked this shot so much I thought I'd do you a little Workshop, I hope you like it :-)

Excellent capture :-D

definitively one of my favorite. Very nice framing and very sharp. I like it.

Oh! Quelle belle image... On dirait presque une peinture faite au pistolet tellement les tons se fondent l'un dans l'autre sur cet incroyable fond. Et il est merveilleusement bien placé dans la composition. Très, très impréssionnant Jean-Michel!

[PS: Je suis en train de faire un jeu de mémoire pour Joséphine, me permettriez-vous une impression petit format?]

I like the detail in the cat and the contrast between the snow and cat hey when you captured this it looks like the cat wanted you to take its picture, hehe!

So sweeeeet :) Also, I remember that my own cat hate snow ... Very good photo for a beautiful cat / cat comportment.

Love her eyes ...

Wow, photo top classe pour une star !
C'est superbe, Jean-Michel. On sent dans votre galerie l'amour des animaux, et le portrait de cette demoiselle est vraiment excellent. Merci à TL de nous permettre de voir de telles réussites.

Magnifique ce chat dans la neige. et quelle texture dans le poil. belle photo.

This shot is just beautiful! I even can touch this wonderful cat. I am - to be true - a dog lover, if we have to make a choice, but now I am doubtful :o)

Hi Jean Michel, a lovely picture of beautiful Uscha. I too once had a cat and a German Sheperd; once they laid side by side, the dog yawned and the cat put his head in the dog's beak. Believe it or not! I'm still sorry that I didn't have a camera ready, but the "photo" is still engraved in my mind...

such a great picture it look like a wild cat... this is a great true nature picture!

Quel modèle éblouissant. Ce chat est superbe et la photo vraiment bien prise. Je mets cette photo dans mes favoris. Merci Jean Michel.

Gorgeous cat! Great contrast with the snow!

Such a beautiful cat. I love the snow all around her. And her expression is great. Nice job.

I just want to play with your cat its that cute. and you can get a very nice shots of your star. so beautiful.

very good shot :)

Hello Jean Michel!
I like the cat and this one is so beautiful .

very good shot.

I don't think you need any more points,but I give you anyway. Well now! This a REAL Norwegian Forest Cat. Very rare in America, we have Maine Coons instead. Our Maine Coon, Lumpy is however doesn't like snow at all and isn't a very good hunter. Last time he even ran away from a squirrel. Janos

Hi Jean,
This puss is simply beautiful!! I love her colour and long fur! Lovely composition of her in the snow, beautiful face and very alert look in her face. Give her a big hug from me! TFS
Cheers Tina :-))

Hi Jean!
great shot! nice position and light.
