The beauty of a DSLR

I was very fortunate last Christmas to receive a Canon EOS 600D digital SLR. During my Bachelor of Fine Arts I studied photography and used an SLR on many occasions so getting a DSLR was the ultimate. My main reason for wanting one was for my trip to Africa next year, but in the mean time I've been experimenting with the camera by snapping my gorgeous kitties on a regular basis. I'm still learning how to use this camera, it's far more complex than a manual SLR so the photos below are just an example of what this great camera can do...

As you can see it really brings out the colours of their eyes, each hair or whisker is perfectly defined and the backgrounds are slightly blurred - all giving the appearance of a quality image. While I'm still working on perfecting my photos, it's fun having two handsome subjects to practice on!
