A place under the sun by gilad A place under the sun by gilad

Hey mister,
leave me be
I hurt no one
I hardly ever speak

Hey mister,
Don't chase me away
I just seek my place
Under the same sun as you

Hey mister,
Will you be my friend?


****

A cold winter day.
This little fellow was trying to warm up under the urban winter sun.
The sun was falling right on him.
I under exposed, and used fill flash to get the mood, and still get the details.
A few seconds after this shot was taken, the frightened little thing ran into the shadows.

One more techniquality data -
I used the Sigma 70-200 F2.8, and it did a very impressive work.
I was amazed to see the sharp reasults.
Even in 100% it's unbelievble.
Impreesive lens, that I highly recommend.

I must admit, this is one of my best works, at least in my opinion.

Poor kitty :( Last year, my daughter made me take home (crying that he'll die outside) one as small as this one, maybe smaller...now he's a family member :))

Your cat photos are heart tugging. I want to come and take them all and give them a home and someone to love them.

awwww, I want to cry. This kitten looks like it was put out. I love cats so much and I hate for them to suffer. I'm crying.

Wow! I'm fascinated and I like it.
How much did you had to take this photo? I guess that I couldn't be so fast to make this.
I like the image structure, the "look" of the kitten and the illustration of the sunlight and the shadows.
I don't know your works but I guess this picture is one of your best.

Best Wishes,

Ariel3

I would have taken him with me, where the kitty could always feel the warm sun in a warm home :heart:
This is my favorite out of all of your wonderful work!
