Cats are not exactly easy to impress, unless by impress you mean giving them a tasty treat to buy friendship for about 30 seconds. Our cat is no exception and while he was laying on his side, making it look like life was pretty damn difficult to be a house cat, I took this photograph of him.
I am not one to do heavy editing of colours to make images look otherworldly as quite often I feel that those ultra colourful images presented by many many photographers would look wonderful enough without such heavy post processing. The words a friend once said to me seem to ring true. He said “Calm down, I’m not a child excited by primary colours anymore, I don’t want the world to look like world of warcraft”
With that said, the most post processing I tend to do is just to make the scene look more like how I remember it with my own eyes or just to make an otherwise flat image more alive. Monochrome is something else which can work but is in my opinion tricky to pull off well… and I have seen too many people pull the ‘Apply monochrome filter -> Hey look! Its art!’
All this said, please accept my unimpressed monochrome rendering :D. It almost needs a caption.
