I was driving down this alley one night when I spotted this cat. I stopped and fired off the shot.

It has been sitting on my computer till now and thought it is a good image to test out NX 2.


D200 @ ISO 1600

1/60 @ f1.8

For my taste there are two things I would have modified for this interesting shot. I would have open the shadows just a bit and I would have reduced contrast.
Also for my taste I would have moved the composition slightly to the right since the main subject, the cat, appears dead center making the composition too static.
Just my opinion.

I like it, but I think a different crop without the sign and without the cat in the center would make it much better!

I prefer the cat in the middle and don't think having it off to one side as in the rule of thirds works.

Cropped out the sign and straightened
