E-1 Experiment #3

Cat's Eye
Cat's Eye
Another cat picture. Oh well, it's Lucy and it's my cat.

Taken with the E-1 and the Sigma 30mm 1:1.4 at f/1.8, then post processed in Silver Efex Pro 2.

I chose black and white via Silver Efex to soften some of the harsh contrasts on Lucy. By the time I had lowered the harshness a bit to show more of the detail in her fur, her eye had disappeared into a deep shadow. I used a tight control point to bring the eye's exposure back up and thus the detail.

Even under rather unusual conditions, the E-1 and the Sigma 30mm consistently locked on the correct focus point, her eye.
