About the Image(s)

I attended an event last month for pets and their parents. I was up close to this guy. I shot it with my iPhone, so I wasn't sure how it was going to come out. It isn't the most exciting composition, but I liked the way the fur came out.

Wonderful details! You really got the fur and eyelashes so focused and the eye itself is wonderful with the catch-lights. I was surprised this was done with an iphone. My only suggestion is to replace the brigh backgroun in the upper left with a dark background.   Posted: 11/09/2021 09:07:13

Dogs make great subjects. Some of the best pictures are taken on the phone cameras. Gaston looks in deep thought and you caught an expression in the eye. I like the tilt of the background when the eyes are level, gives a slight feel of action. Focus, especially on the eye, is excellent. Thought you might like this pic of a dog named Maui also take on a phone cam. Dogs are great for close-ups.   Posted: 11/16/2021 22:43:43

Nice shot Jessica, esp. for phone pic. Great detail in the fur including all shades of gray. As Andrew noted; dogs are good models.   Posted: 11/19/2021 13:27:46

Hi Jessica - I love that you have been able to get the catchlights in his eyes - I zoomed in to see if I could get an idea of where he is!
As the others have said, great iPhone shot with clarity and detail.   Posted: 11/23/2021 16:19:09
