This is my black persian, Persia. I rescued her from a high-kill shelter of November of 2008. GOOD THING! She is a breathtakinly beautiful creature that has the friendliest nature. She is a bit hard to photograph as she is very active but I did manage to get this fantastic photo of her.
In my editing of this photo I basically opened it up in Bridge in Photoshop and enhanced and darkened the black ( fur). I then proceeded to make a copy of the image and softened the background. A little bit of highlighting on her eyes and this is the final, finished product.
This photograph is October in my Persian Cats and Kittens Calendar
