Pussycat for Kilted

This posting is dedicated to my friend Kilted-Arab who loves snaps of cats. So in order to make his day I decided (as exception) to post this Dutch pussycat. It's one you shouldn't handle without gloves, as we speak in Holland :-)

Hope this doesn't spoils your day my big friend and cat lover!

PP talk: adjusted slightly contrast and brightness, and cropped.

Hahahaha Good one Hans

This will really fascinate R.J :)
Mostly i saw him saying "crapsnap" on cat photos n after this one he might love cats more then ever before ;)
I can feel the softness of her hair Ohhh where are my gloves....

Good capture nice bokeh and details.



Had a bloody awful day at work and having a last look here before heading out for a cheeky wee sauvignon blanc. I'll raise a glass to you for brightening my day :-)

Lovely cat portrait, nearly as good as the one I posted a while ago. Except that wasn't a cat, it was wee Jess in a costume...

Anyway, good light and tones on this one, very lifelike and well framed. Classic and publishable, big fella - really nice shot.

Good one Hans - A Dutch cat for KA - I love it. And I bet he does too.

Great capture, very sharp and clear - good focus - well done


PS I have added a theme for all of Richard's cats...

Nice Hans - like the square crop! Guess you don't want to get too close to put a reflector in front of his face heh??

Hello Hans,
What a marvellous portrait of this 'cat'!
Beautiful fur and texture!
Great lighting and focusing.
A nice crope and a clean presentation in a neat frame.
Well done,

Hi Hans,

Very nice shot of this big cat. One is almost tempted to reach out and touch the fur. Well, at least she’s not looking right at us for the moment!


What a wonderful kitty for our lovely friend Richard! He will surely love it! This is nice, a BIG KITTY! I wish his eyes were brighter, but that kitty is perfect for Richard!

Hi Hans
Another wonderful image, very sharp, with great colours and light and a «pose» at the same time majestic and funny.
Greetings, mb

Dit is meer een portret. En wat een scherpte.
Héél mooi.

Hi Hans,
I like your recent animal series, very good photos, such as this one. Nice capture of this lion's look, sharp and detailed exposition. I also like the square crop, I think this was the best solution for this composition. TFS, my friend!

HI Hans
This opened up so slowly that by the time it got to the bridge of his nose thought it was a bear.
Cool looking shot, and love the look of keeping eyes on us.

Hello Hans!
Very beautiful this big "cat"!
Good light and great colours!
Lovely portrait!
Perfect work!
Best regards!

Boa noite Hans
It was really unfair not to point the third cat to Richard.
He looks amazing...What a pussycat.
My regards

Now THAT'S a kitty cat, Hans....
Brilliant light and color, FABULOUS detail, and a wonderful close crop. That's a madly well done shot! Many thanks and kindest wishes,

Hi Hans,
This is one of the best 'cat' photos I have seen, straight out of the pages of National Geographic. well done.
Also, congratulations on your cricket teams win over England in the world 20/20 championships.
I must add....they were helped by a couple of kiwis :)
