Making of “Tigger with an Itch to Scratch” (Olympus E-M1 Mark II)

This image works well as a monochrome image due to drab light and the “mackeral tabby” markings on Tigger. That said, I am not sure that monochrome is better than color here—that’s a judgment call. But it does eliminate all the magenta/green color bokeh.

Capture: Olympus E-M1 Mark II color capture
Conversion: direct black and white conversion in Adobe Camera Raw
