very good capture - is the extra aperture worth it? (i try the same with an f4 70-200). Could even have decreased exposure a bit, but I like the end resutl

Very nice action shot - I like where the dog is in the frame, with empty space on the left. This has just the right dof, so you definitely got the aperture right. Nothing to distract in the background or immediate vicinity of the dog. And I see you're using the same lens as I do for this kind of shots, that can't be wrong! Wink

I agree about the exposure, though. And it's a pity you didn't capture all of the tail, but as photos in my own portfolio will show, you just can't always get that right when your subject is on the move.

So overall I'd say this works quite well.

I think a smaller lens would have been more appropriate for this shot in order to capture the movement in total and give the subject more space within the frame. For action shots as this especially pets which are more predictable and you can get close consider shooting with an 80mm lens or less. In bright conditions it also helps to set the camera exposure down a stop or two, maybe -.3 or -.7 as this will help to keep the whites down and increase your chance of getting more detail in the whites reducing overexposure. You didn't list the shutter speed so I am not sure what you used other then looking at the shot and guessing. But consider using the faster shutter speed as this will help you to capture more of the action such as movement in the fur. If your setting out to take a shot such as this set your aperture between 4 - 6 and then use the fastest shutter you can get, experiment and then remember what worked best. Hope this helps.
