Thanks for the kind words. Of course now that he has appeared in a Crufts show ring (even if it was only a fun event) he now charges 10p/€0.13/20c a lick. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not sure about the ear but his right eyebrow is certainly soft. It's a special lens and I consider myself lucky to have it. 8)

Here's some links to our dogs. The first three are of the female, Cody. She's 18 months old now. The second three are of Angus. He's 6 months old now. Both Cairn Terriers.

I love this thread! All your pets are just so adorable!

Here are pics of my house rabbits, but they were taken with point and shoot cameras :P i'm getting my very first dslr soon and hopefully one day, i'll be able to produce nicer pics haha

This is Buttons, my first bunny.. she's slightly over a year old and she's the bun that rules us all!

This is Yohji. He's 2 months younger than Buttons, and somewhat of a slave to her, poor boy..

and to finish off, a pic of bunny butts in their favourite hidey-box

You'll have to explain to me are they just like kitties? They can stay in the house? Do you have a bunnie door for them to go in and out? Oh, these are wonderful bunnies...It is good to be the bunnie in charge of everything...Give Buttons a pat for me...tell her to keep up the good work..ruler of house bunnie is a good thing...

Oh dear, Patti.. you've got me started lol!

Yup! Bunnies can be kept indoors, just like cats and dogs. And they are generally easy to litter train too.

Mine live free range in my living room.. if you look at the pic of Buttons standing up on her hind legs (reaching for her fave treat ever: raisins!), there are 2 plastic boxes behind her, those are their litter boxes. I also put their pellets, hay, vege and water inside those boxes. i realise that may sound a bit gross, mixing food with poo! lol! but bunnies tend to eat and poo at the same time, so putting their food there helps them learn to use the litter box. Anyways, I have wire mesh in the litter box so that their little feet don't come into contact with their pee and poo :D so thats all i need for my buns! 2 litter boxes, don't need any cages, and lots and lots of toys of course!

Buttons and Yohji have been spayed and neutered.. that helps to eliminate any strong smelling pee, there's really no smell at all now, in fact! I only need to clean the litter box once a week!

Bunnies too have very interesting individual characters. You know how a dog can sometimes race like crazy around a room? well, bunnies do that too and it is the cutest, maddest thing ever! they don't seem to have a good braking system figured out yet and tend to slam into a whole lot of things when they maneouveur corners (although not to the point where they hurt themselves). And when they're happy, they do this little twisty-hop called a binky - they hop and kinda twist their body while they're in mid-air.. silly bunners :lol: oh, and they can BEG for food! its just not possible to resist a standing bunny with its twitchy little nose and whiskers!

ok i think i've written a really long post :oops: we're supposed to share pics here, not just words haha so i'd better stop here. i can go on and on about bunnies!

Here is Millie. I tried to use the light painting technique, however, my flash light is not very good at all. I am going to try again with a differnt light soon. Also focus isn't too sharp doe to her moving. I will have to try shorter exposure time maybe.

Hi Blueorb,

IMHO that's a great shot that needs to be mounted in an antique frame. On the computer monitor here it looks for all the world like a very old painting with age darkened varnish. Maybe the lightest touch of cracklature would complete the illusion on a full sized print?

Bob.

I agree with Bob, that's a cracking shot mate. Most inspiring too.

Thanks guys!

On enlarging the size of the picture, the focus does become an issue.

Regarding the technique, it was so easy. Just set camera to f11, with 4 second exposure in the dark, then shone flashlight over the cat a couple of times. The only problem is the flashlight was barely working and the beam wasn't great. I am going to try again soon with different lights. I would love to see the effects with some LED's.
