Great use of dof and low angle Omar, you capture people and aminals so very well!

No way!!!
My cat sleeps over my head too!!!!!
About the aperture, both are very good reasons?flash is not an option with cats ;)


Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 4/19/2005
although my name sounds Turkish, I don't speak Turkish! (My ancestors several generations ago were Turks) Can you translate? Thanks!

Bizim de beyaz bir kedimiz vardi. Bu fotoya bakinca aklima o geldi.
Bu kedi simdi yanimda olsa epey bir oynardik onunla...
Tebrikler... 7/7


Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 4/19/2005
He is verrrry cute... He likes to sleep on my head too, which is a little annoying at 3am..

I took the shot at 1.8 aperature for 2 reasons: 1 because I wanted to emphasise the stretching position (artistic reason) and 2. because there was low light and this is slide and any higher aperature would mean underexposure (practical reason)!
Take care,


arwa abdullah   {K:34415} 4/19/2005
Awww what a cutie!!! Love the name ;)
hope your new family member will live a happy long life with u all!
The image could have used some more details, a higher aperture number would have worked better still the image is soooooo cute hes so relaxed bet he loved your family from first sight :)

Adorable. Lovely capture of this beautiful creature. He looks confused...:)
Great work, congratulations!

haha..sure is. looks like my Cookie. Thanks for inviting me to view this pic. I love it.


Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 3/17/2005
Thanks, Cessy!
He is really good natured too. but sometimes very naughty!


cessy karina   {K:14205} 3/17/2005
oww.w..... I used to have a cat exactly like this
I missed him very much
very nice shot Omar, love the angle and DOF.


Jeanette Hägglund Jeanette Hägglund   {K:59855} 3/5/2005
Cute cat you have and such a sweet pose you captured her/he in.... Nice name!



Gertrud Gozner   {K:14222} 2/27/2005
lovely capture and very nice DOF!


Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 2/27/2005
thanks for your comment. I'm glad you appreciate the effect. I was trying to emphasise the stretch/twist position of the cat with the DOF and long cropping.


Lea Mulqueen   {K:7396} 2/27/2005
What a great looking cat! The shallow DOF used works well with the pose you model has chosen.


Khaled Mursi Hammoud Khaled Mursi Hammoud   {K:54005} 2/27/2005
Oh.... cute kitten, kittens like playing all day.
Very funny posing and excellent deapth my friend.
Good catch buddy, I like it,

hi omar,

awesome dof composing. love the twisted look of the cat here =)

great idea with the framing.

best wishes,



Judi Liosatos Judi Liosatos   {K:34047} 2/27/2005
Awww now that is just too cute. Definitely needs a cuddle.



Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 2/27/2005
Hi Kareem, thanks for your comments. I had to use 1.4 because there was not enough light (and this is slide). But also I think the dof creates a sleepy dreamy feeling like the cat after waking up!


George Black George Black   {K:102005} 2/26/2005
Great pose of a beautiful animal. Interesting dof to keep all the attention on the sweet/fiery face.

Best wishes,


Abeer Al Jarsh   {K:10209} 2/26/2005
heheheh cute cat and excellent shot


Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 2/26/2005
Thanks Brita! He looks sweet, but actually quite fiery -- hence the name Wasabi! I think he is definitely a dog chaser!


Kareem Hamdan Kareem Hamdan   {K:3180} 2/26/2005
Nice cat head, you used here the largest ap. I think more than 2.8 like 1.8, because I can't see the body, If I were you I would choose the the 3.2 because I want a little detail for the body, the cat goes to who feeds him, especially in the morning. The choose of color slide is v.good.



Joe Teng   {K:16723} 2/26/2005
Very nice potrait of the cat! Nice composition!

Best regard Joe!


Korto Malteze   {K:647} 2/26/2005
I wish I was that cat! Great

And what a sweet new member of the household...... not so sure my dog would like it though :)

Good picture..... the cat looks very calm and content......
