Probably been done before but thought I'd give it a try and see how it would come out. Hate it or like it I'd love to hear your opinion. Thnx.

Photo was shot in Etosha National Park. This fine gentleman sat next to the road just 2m away. It's amazing to watch these fine cats.

Simply superb! Excellent portrait and very effective post work.

This is great! I have a photo of my cat (one that sits on my knee unlike yours!) and I have used the same effect - maybe I will post it tomorrow! Very clever indeed!

Nice shot with effective postprocess. I like this way, but would not mind if it was centered this time. I had a rush through you gallery (I am short of time) and liked a lot. Thanks for sharing this shots with us.
