Cheers. I'm probably getting a bit too keen on boosting saturation and going a bit OTT with it. Thanks for headsup on colour cast and over sharpening. The sharpening I find so difficult to get right. I just do it in one stage when reduced in size rather than the 3 stage process sometimes recommended. Colourcast - I haven't calibrated my computer screen but perhaps will invest in a calibration card.

Love this, would think about adding some soft blur to give it an ethereal look.

Still soggy!

Utterly gorgeous, I suppose there was stuff you had to crop out, it looks a bit tight, would like to see more room around it.

Lovely picture, to me it looks a little oversharpened? Might just be my preference for slightly softer look.

Thank you everyone. I like to think I am still young and innocent, but if you are referring to the cat, I suspect not for long. I have raised her from a 1 week old kitten for a local rescue and she is off to her new home next week. Not before she shreds most of my furniture though!

for some reason this really appeals to me, the start contrast of sky, earth, water, with a glimpse of mountain in the background, very raw and primative feel, not trying to be 'arty' but you can almost feel the water and smell the damp soil. Makes me want to be there!

Love the backlighting on these! Reminds me I want to try this with the neighbouring ponies.

Ohhh, yes thats a good idea, I should have thought of that. Some gun dog stuff (recently acquired a fur covered tennis ball, something like that would be perfect!). Good suggestion, thanks!

Thanks for the comments. The other dogs and people were not so cooperative! (including their attempt to take one of me!)

I love the shallow DOF. I see from the Exif you used a 1.4 max aperture lens, but on f4.5. Do primes with larger max apertures produce this lovely shallow DOF even at smaller apertures as a rule, I don't understand why?

A beautiful working on the exposure - very skilled.

See your point Frank. My 'pure white' background is actually usually a cream shower curtain hung over the French doors which allows light to pass through, though of course it is not pure white. I actually prefer using my bright red fleece throw (£5 Sainsburys) as a background, but there is still this perception of white background as 'professional portrait'!

I did do some with the red blanket, but these ones did look better.

Fixing the DOF (I have a thread asking about increasing DOF) may help, as I can then bring out the texture of the fur.

Quite tempted to keep the fur fabric for baby shots anyway!

thanks,

S

great series, and I've looked up your Belgian inspiration.

Esmeralda by rhobbie

'even with freckles'??! I love the fact that she has a face with texture, lines and irregularities. Much more beautiful than the airbrushed blandity of what passes as a portrait for many. This is a real person, and a fantastic photo. Love it.

Nice shot, but I can't help wanting to see what the colour version would look like, seems to be missing something in B&W

Great shot - I had to check twice when I saw you'd taken it with a compact! Beautiful colour balance.
