Hovis 2

By shaun
Our pet hamster Hovis running around on the sofa. This was shot in very low light - namely a single tungsten spot lamp. Luckily he stopped for a few microseconds to get this shot!

Sadly Hovis passed away earlier in the year :-( ...but now he lives on at page 93 of the Guide to Great Photography Smile

[50mm, f/1.8, 1/640s, ISO800, Tungsten WB]

(This is re-upload of an image I took down as I was not happy with the RAW processing)
