Caddy Closeup

I took this photo of Caddy with my new 200mm telephoto lens from a fair distance away. Sadly I got the DOF slightly off. I was shooting at f3.5 to ry and throw the background totally into blur and it provided he effect I was looking for on he nose and bouth but I had the focal point ~slightly~ off on the eye.

I love it!! I love the animal close-ups (because they are always so hard...). And of course, I'm especially fond of this one....
Iain Myrans: smile Well the telephoto lens certainly helps, but they are tricky. She is a cute cat though.
This is a very engaging shot. Nicely done.

OK, I've had to look carefully to see exactly what you mean about the focusing and depth of field. I think I understand what you were aiming for. The picture is gorgeous though, I'd have been delighted.

How long have you had the lens?
Iain Myrans: Hi Ellie, I've had the lens for about 2 weeks but I've not had too many chances (in the bitter cold) to get shooting with it. I ordered it used online from a store in NYC.

One of the best cat pictures out there! The details, the captured look is perfecto.

Awesome! I think the DOF is just fine, because it allows me to really see the fur on Caddy's cheek and nose.
Iain Myrans: Hey Larry, thanks for the comment. Glad to know you like the DOF smile It's always nice to see people dig back into your archives. I was surprised to see it appear when i clicked on my 'comments' link! I like this one too and Caddy is a really wonderful cat!
