    Hi PasajeroBg - Nice dog! Good focus as I can see you reflected in the dog's eyes. I think I would tweak the image a little so that the general lightness is increased. Then you would have more detail in the dark areas like the pup's nose. BTW, what's he/she called?

    Cheers

    I can empathise with the slightly sad look in your dog's eyes; "oh no, he's playing with that camera again instead of me".

    I agree with David, and as he says; very good focus (on the eyes), even zoomed in, they're sharper than I achieve.

    Keep posting, it's interesting seeing people develop their skills over a few months, not that I consider myself very skilled.

    Hello

    The dog name is Jonye, from Jonye Wallker because this dog never stop walking in neighbourhood , I think HE is very successful male.

    I will try to increase general light, I learning to operate with Lightroom now and I need time, as I said before, I'm green-horn yet.

    Rustyshutter71 is right, the dog playing with camera because after every one good shot he take a bone and beer
    So, this is my secret for success shots with pets
    Apologize for pure English.

    Cheers people.

    hello Jonye and Pasajero

    looks a nice active dog - do post more, but under the message window, if you press 'manage attachments', you can post on this forum and suggest size 1024x768 then we can see it better and quicker

    Chris

    I love dogs, but do not have my own, but here are some I have borrowed:

    Very nice dogs, Mart - the setter is very beautiful and Nuffin too.
    Actually Jonye is not pure, haven't any pedigree, he is real nature child, we are together up than 13 years and he running free in our yard and all neighbourhood and never bean tied.

    Why you have not your own dog?

    P.S I try to edit resolution but unsuccessfully, I just added link for quick access to larger picture.

    Hi Peter,

    Just to show that dogs can smile - this is Meg - she dosen't usually let you take her photo - but with a 250mm lens she did not realise what I was doing! She is a 12 year old Kelpie (Australian sheep dog).

    Cheers from Bulgaria

    Cheers, Richard.

    Thanks Richard - its amazing how illustrations often come for a book one is reading, in my case 'Jessica' by Bryce Courtenay, in which these Kelpies play important support roles. From your pic I can see there would be 'no flies on them'.

    A technique that may be worth trying is set the camera up on a tripod under remote control and stand just off line (only tried it on humans, but might work on shy dog too)

    Hello

    Yes, the nature has its own amazing and unique way to smile us.
    We talking for sheep dogs, take a look of this one, he is Bulgarian sheep dog.
    Excuse me for pure quality, this is maximum zoomed picture(my courage is not enough for closer shot ))

    Cheers from Bulgaria

    Typical Lurcher material for Peter - Sam is more than willing, but Zena is a bit old

    You are right, more than smile.
    Take a look here, some dogs not smiling and joking.

    Real sheep-dog with full armor in action...

    Isn't easy to be wolf in this time I think
