Before & After: Kitty

It's been hard to get into the groove of posting on the blog lately but I saw this on another blog and
thought it might be fun.  Especially since I tend to edit the heck out of my photos then never post them
on the blog or do anything special with them.

  The subject is my sweet kitty, originally named "Baby".  Then when we got actual babies,
it was too confusing calling her that so we changed her name to "Kitty".
Yeah, we're clever, huh.

Here's the original photo, straight out of the camera.


First I gave it a little crop using the rule of thirds:

Next, I brightened the areas that were too dark and darkened the areas that were too light.
Then I spiffed up the eyes using the dodge and burn and sponge and sharpen tool: 


I was curious to see how it would look in black and white and I think it's pretty nice.
I should have posted this yesterday for Lisa's Black & White Wednesday. Better late than never, eh?

Daddy's been traveling all week so it's just been me and the kids and Kitty.
When Daddy's gone, Kitty gets to sleep in the master bedroom with me. She's a comfort but she's also a
big pain in the neck because she meows and stands on my head. Not sure why I put up with it except that
I love her.
