SUPERSTITION - Moscow, Russia

If it's bad luck for a black cat to cross your path, I assume I'm pretty screwed after taking this shot. I'd seen these two black cats around several times (it's quite near to my old apartment) but either didn't have time or didn't have my camera until I finally lucked out one early evening just as the sun had set. It's a blend of two different exposures taken a few seconds apart. There wasn't enough light to set a sufficiently small aperture to get both cats in focus and I didn't want to scare them off with a flash, so I took two separate frames focused on each animal and then merged them together.
