Those of you who follow my stream will recognise this photo immediately. I already published a monochrome version of it a few weeks ago. Usually, I do black & white animal portraits, but in this particular case, I really couldn't (and still can't decide) which one I like more. I decided not to force myself to make a decision because I think that while showing the same things, both images are profoundly different - so different that I seriously considered changing the title, because in this version the eye contact isn't the predominant feature of the image anymore. Here, the gloriously warm vibrancy of the cat itself and the fine tonality of the wood define the photo. While the black & white version showed the cat looking at the viewer, the color shows the cat sitting on the trunk.

Now, which version do you like better?
