... I love the wide eyed look on the terrier's face ... priceless.
The look on the Yorkies face is brilliant
little and large lol
Great humour, really nice light as well.
The poor little Yorkie looks terrified! Bless!
I really like the David-and-Goliath-contrast in this shot, but unfortunately it has a few problems, the burnt-out hair of the Yorkie being one of the most noticeable. I'd be inclined to crop a little off the right-hand side of the shot to get rid of that chain that's only partly in the picture. What a pity about the exposure, this shot had so much potential.
@Conrad. I'm no post processing genius, maybe I'll return to the original shot, which wasn't cropped and have another look. As for the exposure, a backlit subject shot in the heat of the moment is never easy to get right! Photoshop tips anyone?
If I know Yorkies, he thinks he is as large as the Bloodhound.
The yorkie actually ended up going for the bloodhound (which kind of thought it was a game before lolloping off). The yorkie was oh so proud of himself after
Such a wonderful image! Yes, the Yorkie is slightly burnt out (not sure there's anything you can do about that), but the humour is still there!
I agree about cropping off the chain, but that is a minor niggle. Well caught.
(Don't forget your 'tags' need commas between them! )
superb shot, great composition.
LOVE THIS SHOT

True, a grab shot is difficult to get right in this respect. My wife is looking over my shoulder and says you can try to use the Patch tool - recovering information from a burnt-out spot isn't possible since burn-out means there's nothing there, but the patch tool can more or less "copy" that information for you from a similar spot in the photo.
And next time you take a shot like this, you could expose for the background, using exposure lock, re-compose and take the shot. That will probably underexpose the dogs, but that's easier to fix than the other way around.
Conrad - cheers, I'll have a go at some point.
I was under the impression that when shooting digital it was better to over expose than under - reason being that there's more detail held in blown areas than dark ones... not that it helps in this image mind
Er, no, that's not quite right. Only applies to shooting something white (or very light), because white materials tend to reflect so much light that they fool the camera's meter into exposing wrongly, and overexposing fixes the problem - hence the advice to overexpose snow by about two stops. But that doesn't apply here.
I think it was more about sensors being able to record more detail in highlights than shadows - not that it matters though really - maybe i should just try and get the exposure right first time around!
