That is really crisp. Did you apply any extra sharpening or is your lens just that good?

Re: Feline Follies

Thanks. The lens is the Canon 18-135 STM kit lens that comes with the 70D. But while it is the entry-level lens, I've been very impressed with it so far. I also process all of my images in Lightoom 3 (I shoot in RAW), so I did apply some sharpening in post. Also, shrinking the image from its original 5400 x 3600 size to the 1620 x 1080 size I use to upload at flickr adds a bit of sharpening to the image. And I imagine there's even more sharpening when flickr further reduces the size to the 800 x 534 I posted here.

So yeah, really good lens, and several processes that increased the sharpening.

ETA:
The ISO for that shot is 6400, which just goes to show that my camera also helps maintain the quality of the image.

^Those are really great shots, Ancient Mariner! Not just the image quality, but also the moments you capture. Very nice!

I dug up a few older photos of my cat Anda and did some minor editing:

Thanks! Yes, she loves to pose. And no, she's not a vampire.

That was exactly my thought, too!

Alienesse, thanks for the compliments! And allow me to return the favor: those are some great moments you've captured (mid-yawn is almost always amusing). And the "cat bed" is a really cool setting!
