The thing that makes today’s photo unique is not the editing I did to create our Caturday Art. What makes it unusual is the fact that Astrid was on the catio and she and Giulietta were in such close proximity. Astrid was on the cat tower and Giulietta on the railing. They had been watching the birds on the feeder that is just out of frame to the right.
I used two different photo-editing programs to create our submission to Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. I started with funny.pho.to. I used the “cartoon” filter and added the frame. I then loaded that photo in piZap where I bumped up the saturation and added the “watery” effect.
In the original photo, I think Giulietta merely looks curious at finding Astrid joining her for Bird TV. In the art photo, she looks angry at Astrid for invading her space. For this reason, I think I like the original best.

Very cool photo! Love the cartoon effect. Sampy is of course over the moon to see Astrid featured today. He is happy to that she and Giulietta are getting along…maybe? 🙂
We are hoping to be able to get a post up for the selfie hop tomorrow. Mom is visiting her mom this weekend and forgot her computer. She has her ipad, but it’s not good for posting on the blog. She says she is going to see what she can do!
Sampy sends jillions of kisses to Astrid, and we all send lots of love!!

We love the effects of the first photo, but yes, the original really captures the stink eye glare! Purrs, Rhette
This is such a cool picture. One of my favorite this week. You are right, though. Giulietta does look a bit angry in the art piece. Still love both.

I like how the editing looks like artwork. But, I believe I also prefer the original for the same reason as you! 🙂

Now this is a great look. My favorite of all.
Pawsome art today. Have a super Saturday.

I dunno, do you think that putting that photo through all those filters maybe revealed Giulietta’s REAL thoughts?
That’s so interesting! And how different they look when the art is applied!
Off to start working the camera fur a selfie issue…
In re: Your comment. Yes, Ma’am. ::ashamed ears::
Now, you wanna know what *I* think? *I* think Miss Giulietta looks pretty p.o.’d in the unretouched photo, too–ha ha meow!
