    Unexpected shot

    While I was getting set up for a shot of a brother and sister pair of Boxers with their father, I noticed the little girl looking at the dad with an adoring gaze. I grabbed the shot. I wasn't at the level I wanted to shoot and the father had his tongue out. However, the owners of the little female, love the shot.

    Grabbing the moment. Well done. Who wouldn't want that shot?

    That shot is wonderful. Because it is not "composed" there are many things for the eye to look at; you wouldn't tire of seeing it. I also like your choice of green for the seating. It is a nice contrast to the dogs and the background.

    As I tell my students, sometimes the accidental shot, the spur of the moment shot or the over-the-shoulder-on-a-dead-run shot will be the best one of the day. When you see it, SHOOT IT!

    One of my students was taking pictures inside her house for an assignment. She noticed out the window that a nice sunset was developing, so she ran out and started shooting. The very first shot was selected to be on the "Wall of Fame" on the last day of school. All the pictures were very nice, but the sunset shot while still set to tungsten was spectacular.

    Great capture, the little dog's expression is wonderful. Good use of a photographer's eye.
