Yahoo!!! Finally we can post our pets!

This is a photo of Tinka (our cat) and one of her boyfriends, Saleem. He is a neighbours cat, and has been coming over for a while now. He comes to our back door everyday calling on her. And as you can see in the photo, sometimes she pays no attention to him! Saleem is a beautiful cat, and is almost twice Tinka's size too. We watch them for hours playing together. If you look at the glass, all the water spots are from his wet paws, trying to get Tinka to come out and "play!".

**Post Pro - Cropped, and added border.

Poor Sameel. Really a cute catch Pamela, and good to see you here. Difficult sistuation to get the right expsoure here. All that light coming in from the window fools the camera a bit. Saleem is very nicely exposed but tinker may be a bit dark. If you have photo shop you could add a new layer, lighten that and add a mask over Saleem to keep the exposure on him. It might bring out more details on Tinker. Still this is one of the sweates pictures, reminds me of my old cat.

That looks like a friend who calls the other one to play outside! I like very much this image, however because of the backlighting, there are many pixels especially in the dark parts.

Ça ressemble à un ami qui appelle l'autre pour jouer dehors! J'aime beaucoup cette image, cependant à cause du contre-jour, il y a beaucoup de pixels surtout dans les parties sombres.

Love is always beautifull! Lovely photo, something to remember one day! Saleem is one of her boyfriends? How many does she have? :) Animals, we love them! Amazing how Saleem looks to know he´s going to be photographed and so he looks straight to the camera!

Hi Pamela, it looks like Tinka is a beautiful kitty. I see why all the boys come knocking on the window. I love the pose you captured here. Very well done. :-)

The male (majestic) attempt to pay court towards Tinka is very well captured here. Congrats!!!

A very good capture and I love the facial expressions.Purrfect!

I like the attitude of that boyfriend and also your Tinka (Just like she's saying: "If I pretent his not there - perhaps he go away" ;-)

I like the light you got this fine two cats in - great work Pamela.

I like this shot! sometimes one wish we could communicate with words with them don't we? I could easily imagine the cat outside saying: "hey Tinka don't play your prat! you know I am here, come on, stop messing around with me"... sounds like a movie huh! lovely shot!

We should say:« Hey you...look at me!»
Nice shot. right time. A little bit too much shadow on Tinka.
Anyway, I like it.*

Nice shot, I have a cat too and his boyfriend act like you shown in your photo. MIIIAAAUUUU! And, as you already shown, sometimes my cat pays no attention to him. Very funny!

how totally adorable!! i love Tinka's oblivious look ihihih, what a heartbreaker! that is so cute.. in England we had 3 female cats so definately had our share of 'suiters', this is classic! - thx for posting it Pamela, it's given me a most welcome giggle today :) - Ayda

What a sweet moment you have captured here. Saleem looks like he just wants to play or at least have Tinka pay some attention to him. But alas, women can play hard to get at times! Great picture. Nice job!

Very nice image, capturing a funny situation. That female is really making the male grow his interest on her! Well taken difficult shot. Congratulations

Amazing photo!

*Tinka rules!*

Hi Pamela,
What a great moment. I love the face expression of Tinka just pretending Saleem was not there. Pour Saleem. Even in animal live love is difficult...

very good compozition :)

alucinante. el gesto del primer gato contra el vidrio y la indiferencia del otro. me encantó.

Hi Pamela,

Nice shot. The best things about the shot is the expression of the saleem cat. It looks like that he is sad because tinka is not looking at him and not interested in playing with him. Poor Saleem. You girls always think that your so great and dont see our poor guys love. Uh you girlsssssssss. ;) Just joking.

The moment is captured really well.

Well done and TFS.

With best regards,
Muhammad Usman Ali
