Difficult Lighting

Very strong sun was coming through this window. The dynamic range in this sort of afternoon lighting is too great for the camera to deal with. Either I can have some detail in the dark fur and the white fur blown out, or the white fur toned down and no detail in the dark fur. This is a compromise and the only really useful image of about 8 images. You will note there is a strong minus compensation. I also used the shadow/highlight adjustment in Photoshop to tone down the brightness on the cushion and to bring out detail in the shadowed fur. Click on "next" to see original

You sure made the perfect adjustments. You can even see his eyes perfectly. He sure looks comfortable!
