    Re: Some pics of my baby

    Hi again Honey,

    #1: Nice shot, but Yogibear has beat the auto-focus, his face is a bit soft whereas the gras beside/behind is sharper, this is always a problem, even with expensive DSLRs; pets rarely co-operate for photography and keeping a charging animal sharp is almost impossible.

    #2: Good composition, but a shame the grass cuts right through and hides his eye. A little less foreground greenery would help!

    #3: Very nice, but you're just a little too close and chopped his feet and tail off

    #4 and #5: Not much wrong with these technically, well done.

    Practice makes perfect; keep at it, you're improving already.

    Thanks Dave, i agree with your comments, it is hard to get yogi to be still for long, he is a lovely subject to shoot though, i will keep practising, like you say practice makes perfect love hunny xx

    Hi Honey,
    I was just looking at your auto-sig line, one might also say;

    "Photography is a succession of exposures which must be taken to be enjoyed"

    .. or put another way, if you don't take it, you or I can't enjoy it!
    Who wrote yours?
    It is true btw
    and more original than my poor facsimilie

    Hi Honey,

    In this case I suspect the shutter speed (ss) was a little slow for the movement of playing dogs, so it is blurred for that reason, not being out of focus. The EXIF is blocked on this one, so I cannot see what ss was used to advise more accurately.

    On the solo black dog shot, it was 1/90s at ISO240 and f5.4, so it was obviously quite overcast.
    A higher ISO (say800) would help reduce the problem, but give ou more noise - although with practice and expense, this is easily removable in PP.

    Cheers,
