Ok so its another dog photo!!
He's very photogenic and a real poser.

My dog relaxing on holiday on his favourite wall so that he can watch everyone going by. Taken with the b&w option on my G2.

Good shot and it is the crossed paws that give it that extra special something. Looks a lot like my own border collie. A real exposure challenge. The light in the eyes is nice.

Great shot, Mari. I agree that the crossed paws make this, although that's not to take away from the rest of the shot (exposure, catchlights etc).

Cheers Mike. He's always pretty horizontal. Except when at work and then he's a match for any sheep or cow.

Nicely done Mari. I reckon you must be the luckiest woman in the world - having a relaxed collie (I thought that was an oxymoron) whose loves the camera!

What a lovely kind face your Welsh Collie has Mari . A great shot and it looks so well in B/W . Only just come back as no-one seemed to comment. Now everyone seems quite chatty . Long may it last Mavis Dean Smile)Think you will now be able to email me from Photopoints . Have to be wary .

Great photo of your dog. He works really well in black and white. Really great expression on his face.

I really want to try and learn how to photograph my cats - but i dont know where to start!
kind regards,

I saw this last night and couldn't believe how good it was, just didn't have the time to click on it - you just messaging me reminded me about it. This photo is absolutely brilliant. I took a photo the other day of a similar dog and I thought it was brilliant, this however knocks spots off it. Great effort.
