Thank you! Incidentally, what browser are you using? I checked it in Firefox, Opera & Safari on both Win7 and OSX.

I think it's awesome that you called your cat Marco Marko.

One ping only.

Why thank you! It was 1/3 lucky shot (only Marko's third or forth time out of the house since we got him a collar) 1/3 shooting for HDR, and 1/3 TONS OF POST-PROCESSING because, well...cats don't exactly stand still for the three HDR frames needed :/

A dash of being at the right place at the right time, a soupçon of fantastic Texas clouds at the right moment, and voilà!

I'm convinced that cats are really aliens and eventually they will dominate the world and that includes humans. We'll be slaves to their masterful plan. Letting Marko out of the house - baaaaaad idea because he'll signal the others and begin the massive invasion of planet Earth.

Look at little Marko!

I love this photo; well worth the time spent cat herding and post processing. :)

Thanks! I made one teensy little change after reading your comment; a 50% midtone burn on poor Marko. I've been dismayed that he looks like he was pasted into the photo despite the fact he was there - a complication of adding the same image of him into all three HDR exposures.

*shrug*

I hope it looks more natural now.

Awesome photo! Cats are so.. majestic. They always look like they own the world. I love them.

A dog believes, "YOU pet me, YOU feed me, YOU shelter me, and YOU love me. You must be a god."

A cat’s intrinsic belief is, "You pet ME, you feed ME, you shelter ME, and you love ME. I must be God."

I can tell you that every cat I've been owned by believes the latter ;)
