Thank you! The only modifications of this picture are some black levels, contrast and sharpness adjusments. The cat looked somewhat ill, you can tell by it's strange eyes also cat was dirty. Quite disturbing actually.

Behind The Lens

Location
Vilnius, Lithuania
Time
It was afternoon around 3 pm.
Lighting
Nothing in particular. Just a sunny day.
Equipment
I used Pentax K200D paired with Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 HSM II. It is a hand-held shot.
Inspiration
There were few small dirty kittens and their mom (this is her picture). They kept a distance when they saw me, so I carefully took out a camera. What inspired me was their poorness. By the way, ''the mother'' stood in front of the kittens and I must say she stood quite proudly and courageously.
Editing
Yes, there were some work done after I took a picture. I made black levels adjustments, as well as tweaked a global contrast to make the dirtiness stand out. I also applied sharpness and cropped a picture.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I use old 50 mm lens from Pentax and the kit lens. I sold my Sigma lens which helped me to take this picture.
Feedback
Be careful and move slowly. The slower you prepare the more chance you will get a picture. Zoom lens is advised (70-200 mm was just perfect to reach a cat without moving myself). Do some post-processing, make contrast adjustments, experiment with black levels. Apply some sharpness (Mostly on eyes).
