  1. There are too many wonderful shots to choose a favorite, but as a cat lover, I am partial to the Cat and Nine Lifes (though it should be “Lives.”) It’s such a simple concept, beautiful results.

    Great showcase!

  2. As I wrote a couple of days ago on psdfan I’m fascinated by reflection effect in photography and I take reflection shot very often.
    Please have a look to this shots:
