Very nice. I get the sense of softness of the fur, but still a sharply focused face.The advantage of living in this part of the world is that I can start before you guys. It is Mid-autumn Festival today and thick clouds are all over the sky so moon shot is out, will try my luck tomorrow. 85mm is meant to be a portrait lens so I start with a portrait of Yoda. This guy like to look away or shut his eyes whenever I have a camera pointing at him.

Thank you. I think he will be featured more than once in this month.Sweet picture Phil! There’s always room for one more cat in Oktoberfest!
Thank. you very much.Nice start, Phil!
Yes, cats all are, right?Sweet kitty with just a touch of superiority!
LOL. I feel your pain.My kids and my wife react the same way with me. Sigh.
Yes indeed. And I am going to learn more in this month.Great eye color, Yoda!
Phil, you know this lens can be stopped down for portraiture - even ever so slightly, it helps! A little secret we share, you did the same I would have done, great minds think alike.
Yes it's very good at 1.8. But portraits closer up benefit from the DOF
Thank you. This lens is really good and I will explore more.Very nice. I get the sense of softness of the fur, but still a sharply focused face.
Cats are smart and maybe communicating with one another by some means.I've noticed some critters over the years do the same thing, others seem stare you down.
Great atmosphere!Day 2
We went out for dinner tonight. Yes, restaurants are re-opened now, with restrictions in number of tables and number per table. Went past a side street after dinner, during daytime it's quite a busy streets with street side stalls selling various stuff.

I get the feeling of intrigue in the scene. Nice and IS works very well.
Interesting to see all the different temperatures of lights—they really help give extra definition to the scene.
Thank you guys. Like previous years, I would like to show you different aspects of my hometown.Nicely done Phil! The scene has an interesting look.
Wonderful composition, and nice touch with the sole person in the shot!
