Hydrox - sprawled

This is one of our rescues, Hydrox - so named because of his coloring, not his sweetness - hanging out on a rug. For some reason, I always seem to get my heart stolen by the ones that aren't lap cats. It's been quite a challenge to get this one to even come to be petted on the floor.


Not much light and a very contrasty scene because what light there was landed right on his white fur, so I pushed the ISO pretty hard, then ran a red-blue chroma noise reduction on it, highlighted the eyes (they were very dark, entirely in shadow) and then took the result.


Canon EOS 6D mkI, Canon EF200mm f/2.8L lens, ISO 6400, f/5.6, shutter 1/400th sec.


I loaded this from the original Canon RAW file and then cropped and edited it using OSX / MacOS software I wrote, iToolBox. This software is free and anyone is welcome to use it. No strings, ads, subscriptions, payments, nagging, DRM, CP, or limits. It just works.
