Dog Agility Trials 2014

By FeatherFriend
A head shot taken from the show this year. The layout of the event has changed so much from last year, impossible to get a clear shot what with advertising boards, Ice cream vans etc in the BG so I decided to do a crop of the dog and put it through a Nik silver effex filter. It's supposed to look a bit gritty to emulate film in case you were interested Wink

Many thanks for the lovely comments on my previous shot, really appreciate the support.

Superb timing and with a very fast shutter to capture this leaping dog, in very fine detail and with that focussed alert expression recorded.
Not a subject that I would cope with well ....... I like my subjects to be moving somewhat more sedately, better still not at all ..... WinkWinkWink

A cracker there Geoff and good to read that I am not the only one that considers BG - having been told on here that there are not relevant.

I could answer that but it's probably wiser not to Wink

Wonderful Geoff

If the dog isn't yours then the owners must be well chuffed with the shot

Backgrounds-- Ummmmm?

The dog here overwhelms any sort of bg, so well captured--eye contact, pose--I feared he would jump out and hug me-- or rather knock me over!
