Bird Puss

by Bill Funk

<span class="small">Scratch, our Siamese, photographed with what would on a normal day be his dinner. Birds were shot at a local pet store and added in Photoshop. As the birds were photoraphed in cages, the bars they were behind had to be cloned out, and this took a lot of time and patience. Addition of shadows and direction of lighting effects were important factors to getting the image to look realistic.</span>

    I'm must comment on this one. Firstly I saw it in Photoshop Creative and my first thought was (you must know that I love cats) that it's just so adorable picture of the kitty with birds.

    I saw this in the magazine - to cute for words! It works particularly well as the birds are the same colour as as Scratch's eyes.
