I love the face this little bundle of cuteness is making. Enjoyed being creative with tags for this.  :)

Buckskin Gulch -- longest and deepest slot canyon in the world -- Utah, United States.   Pic taken 2nd half of April 2017;  one could conceivably spend a week here photographing.  Tripod is a MUST as there is simply not enough light,  but I was only hiking and this shot was handheld;   it turned out very sharp and focused, even with 1/15 sec exposure.  Lens has stabilizer, so this probably helped;  I was also leaning my elbows on the rock to steady as much as possible.   ND filter is also very good idea as upper parts of the frame will usually be considerably brighter.

Freddy Krueger is still alive......?????  :o

If that's Freddy Kreuger, I hope he doesn't stroke his dog...

Doggy in the window

 

BTW, does anyone know what type of dog this is -- a poodle perhaps?

Could it be a Bichon Frise?

 

Thanks, but too big I think. The dog got up and walked away after I took the picture, and he/she looked to be quite large.

Just want to say, this is FANTASTIC image.   I look at this thread for most part to enjoy high quality shots, and this one just pushes all the right buttons. Maybe because it is so simple;  just a guy walking his dog.   If I was nit picking I'd say only thing that could be better would be removal of car roof next to hotel entrance.

 

Hope it sells.. many times!

This was hard work. It was a very lucky shot, with no time to setup properly. The background was atrocious so I had to change it. I tried various options but none looked right, and I'm not sure this does either. The ducks are so sharp though that I had to use it somehow. Oh they are Mallard ducks - I think. The left one looks a bit different, possibly a cross-breed (there are many cross-breed Mallards at this location in Arundel). The left one also looks like a drake due to the colouring, but it's body looks a bit like a hen. Hmmm. The one on the right is a hen, I'm sure, but I hadn't spotted the colouring on a female's wings before. It's almost impossible to identify the species at this location with all the cross-breeding going on, thanks to the nearby wildlife wetlands place.

I thought of Allan while taking these. :D   I'm not sure which I like best. Taken on the same side of the road as the field. They are of the market town of Arundel in West Sussex, UK.

I'd go for the top one. The branches don't add value to the shot. I always strive to exclude everything that doesn't contribute to the composition. But that's just my opinion  ;)

 

Cheers,

Philippe

 

 

Thanks for that Philippe.   :)  It's strange but it's the total opposite to me!  :lol:    I used to exclude everything I could, from the time I framed the shot to processing. With some images though I realised that often something in the foreground helps. Now, I intentionally include a foreground if it's possible. I admit that my example above isn't the best to show that (and I probably also prefer the one without the foreground tree). The way I've been thinking lately when taking photos is that if I can't frame it as I'd like to due to things being "in the way", I'll just make those things part of the image instead,.and it seems to work quite well......in my opinion. ;)   It was when processing this image below that I had this realisation that a foreground is often a good thing When taking it I was annoyed that I wasn't ready to take the photo until these ladies were partly blocked by the bush, and I nearly didn't take it. After looking at the result though I really loved the way that bush highlighted the joggers.

When  If I win May's challenge I'll bare that in mind.  :D

 

You're right, sometimes it works and sometimes not. I have older Arundel Castle shots without foreground trees (no longer on Alamy) but these are newer, intentionally with trees, and I much prefer them.

Nice one  :) Have you tried removing the two branches on the left? Could turn out even better  ;) ....... or another option ....add those branches from the picture on the right.

 

Cheers,

Philippe

 

 

I haven't, but I have plenty more Arundel Castle pics in my ports so I won't bother.  :D

 

Talking of Arundel - I'm off out there now....again! Some amazing birds there at the moment. I saw a huge Grey Heron there 2 days ago but I scared it away before I had time to capture it, so I went yesterday hoping to spot it again but no luck. So I'll try again today around the same time.
