Black cat by suzanne234

Black cat

Gary is not too keen when I do a spot of faffing about with the photos. He say what's the point of taking a photo of a square and making it into a circle. I do think he has a point, but I can see I will be doing much more faffing now winter is coming and photo opportunities are fewer.
Anyway, meet Chumley, next doors tabby cat who has had a major makeover whilst I've been getting to grips with layer masking.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments, you are all too kind and I really appreciate you taking the time to visit.
Fabulous and spectacular on black. Fav

Excellent faffing! Very nice indeed. I never have got to the bottom of layer masks ...

@fbailey Thank you! I think it sunk in a bit after I watched this tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jle81ofRLok and then after about 3 hours eventually came up with this!

@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry, excellent advice, I shall try remember that :)

It took me a second or two to work out what this was. But, I really like it!

@suzanne234 Thanks for that, will watch it tomorrow:) The more I look at your cat, the more impressive he is - really subtle too.
November 16th, 2017  
Very cool and creative. It took me a little time to figure it out, too, but now I see it.
November 16th, 2017  
Beautifully done. Love your faffing!
November 16th, 2017  
Great faffing! Love this - when seen on black, it really has presence! Faved
November 16th, 2017  
makes me curious.
November 17th, 2017  
What a cool shot, took me a minute to work it out.
November 17th, 2017  
I had to really study this but I have it figured out! Very creative and good for you for trying something different. Pushing the envelope. Very unique and fun to learn about - I did watch the video you suggested. Anxious to see more of this type of work.

Fabulous faffing. Stunning image. Fav.
November 17th, 2017

Quite fabulous when I looked on black! fav

Very clever - nothing wrong with a bit of faffing with your photos - it can be so much fun.
November 17th, 2017  
Your faffing has given a very cool Rim light effect.
November 17th, 2017  
I like it. Great processing.
November 17th, 2017  
Go for faffing l say, like this shot
November 17th, 2017  
I am not seeing it. Might be too tired at the moment, Suzanne. What the heck is faffing?!? Will view again after some sleep. :)
November 17th, 2017  
Wow, this is amazing. Fav.
November 17th, 2017  
@gardenfolk My mother used to often say "you do faff about Suzanne" when I spent lots of time messing about with things (usually with little effect) It seems the perfect word to describe my efforts to prettify my photos :) Chumley is in profile here, perhaps more obvious if viewed on black....or perhaps not :))
November 17th, 2017  
i love this - so good
November 17th, 2017  
How cool! fav

Awesome on black, great bit of faffing about and I agree it's the time of year to get creative. Definitely a fav.
November 17th, 2017  
Good work!
November 17th, 2017  
Fabulous. Fav!! 😀
November 17th, 2017  
Finally got it!! I was trying to work out how the right hand side was a cat..... now I have found the cat, it is obvious, of course! 😀 I have no idea what masking or layering is either!
November 17th, 2017  
Wonderful !
November 17th, 2017  
very beautiful!
November 17th, 2017  
Brilliant! First class faffing!
November 17th, 2017  
So clever and wonderful. Fav
November 17th, 2017  
Love this Suzanne!
November 18th, 2017  
Fabulous image, Suzanne! Especially viewed on black! :-)
November 18th, 2017  
For one it is fun, and then it is creative, and why not? It all depends why you take photographs - if you want to create beautiful images then sometimes faffing around is needed. Excellent work here and it is good to make people think a bit with your photo.
November 18th, 2017  
Lovely faffing! 😃
November 19th, 2017  
Fabulous faffing - and a fav.
November 20th, 2017  
Congratulations on receiving TT for this outstanding photo!!
November 25th, 2017  
OK...I finally saw it! :) Had to go to the top twenty for me to clue it in! Congratulations to you, Suzanne!
November 25th, 2017  
Big congratulations for getting to the TT with this fab picture!!
November 25th, 2017  
Great to see this on TT!
November 25th, 2017  
@taffy @fbailey @365karly1 Thank you very much
@gardenfolk Thank you, Thinking about it, if you are using a phone it could be difficult to see, especially in bright light.
November 25th, 2017  
@suzanne234 It is easy to see now! I love and faved it! I think I was too tired to comprehend and I was backward...I kept looking at the right side trying to figure out the lines, not the left side! What is faffing???
November 25th, 2017  
@gardenfolk Bless you, thank you. Haha, faffing is spending lots of time messing with something. My mum always told me off for it.:)
November 25th, 2017  
Well done on TT! Much deserved.
November 27th, 2017  
wow, this is awesome.... it took my eyes ages to see the cat, kept seeing the surrounding, then it all became clear and I can't see what I was seeing before!
December 1st, 2017  
@pixiemac Thank you very much Sarah, I must admit I couldn't see why he wasn't spotted, but then again I knew where he was!
December 7th, 2017  
@suzanne234 looks like @gardenfolk cc folk’s brain was doing the same as mine looking from right to left not left to right !
Beautiful once our brains get around it
