Wiping The Doggie Drool by Chuck Carstensen

November 2019 - Wiping The Doggie Drool

About the Image(s)

At the local Farmers Market there are people, kids and, dogs. Everyone is socializing, especially the dogs - large and small. I caught this owner of this Mastiff wiping it’s drool just after meeting up with some folks. The owner carried a face cloth just for the purpose. It all happened very quickly. Fujifilm X-Pro2, 23mm lens, ISO 2500, 1/4000, f/16.

Nice image Chuck. I like the background and the inclusion of the woman walking, I think it give a sense of place. I think the title is very important, otherwise I may not have known what was going on. I like the composition with the exception of the pole on the left. I think the image may be stronger if the pole were cropped out. I like the lighting, especially the bold shadows of the man and dog.   Posted: 11/08/2019 17:50:02

Yes, I agree. Cropping the pole would make it better. Thanks,

I too agree that the image might be strengthened by cropping, but for me, the story is in the man and dog, and their shadows, so I'd crop more strongly - suggestion attached.   Posted: 11/11/2019 00:08:06
