The cats are most exquisite in their closeups. Your new camera sounds lovely too. Such a deal.

Nice, especially the last one. I am AMAZED you got those indoors. With flash? Or just available light? I got so fed up with the cats and dog's eyes looking like mad zombies when I used flash that I no longer use flash at all but this means I miss a lot. The D300 can practically take pictures in the dark (novice photographers like me need better equipment than those with experience and natural talent), but I also have an Olympus 1050sw bought to spare the kids' feelings as they HATE me being a paparazzi (waterproof and drop and freeze proof) with a similar flat lens and sliding cover that isn't very good indoors w available light. No indoor images as lovely as those of the cats.
The bane of my indoor picture taking existence are the compact fluorescent bulbs frugal husband insists on putting in every lamp. They may be cheap, but they give skin tones this ghastly greenish yellow cast. The gungho bossy boots at the camera store says "Oh, you just do this to the white balance, and that to the light blah blah, and lectures on.

This year I have found that incandescent Xmas lights give a much more natural glow to people and animal nighttime shots--a great improvement. Am threatening to do a St. Lucia shot of my girls with these tacky-in= real-life-but-pretty-photographed strung star lights from China as a crown...

Well, that was very decent of Pentax to provide you with a replacement camera. Good for them.

And it looks like you will have much much fun taking pics of the kitties in all their glory. :-)

Bravo to Pentax for making these marvelous pictures of two of my beloved furry friends possible! Truly - they are exquisite cats in every way.

From me and Sam the Wonder Cat - Meowry Christmas!

I love the third photo from the bottom, its very sweet. Your cat does have a certain wry look too which makes her very photogenic! You might want to see if your feline friend could benefit from Paula Robb’s Complete Cat Training!
