Jumping Spaniel

By Max_WW
The only one of 50 or so shots which came out well. Cropped it to work the rule of thirds but it didn't look right, so went back.

1/250 sec at F5 worked best, although I'd have preferred a faster shutter. I didn't want a higher ISO however as I wanted to avoid grain.

Nice timing to catch him at the height of his jump. I like the lolling tongue and flying ears.

Well done on a superb shot. So sharp and clear. I've been trying for ages to get my Molly but they're always blurred or she's not even in the picture. I'll keep practising....some day eh!

the rule of thirds is mostly right, but perhaps this works because your spaniel is jumping toward the third Smile
