Please describe how you got this photo?
I was photographing the shrimp boats docked at the waterfront when all of a sudden this cat jumped out from one of them, evidently searching for leftovers on the boat decks. He didn’t seem skittish, so I followed him around, snapping randomly with my camera low to the ground. Something suddenly caught his attention, making him look to the side and strike this regal pose.

{loadposition inpage} Did you use any special techniques?
Dodging and burning in Photoshop and minor HDR processing in Photomatix, which was blended in at 50%.
