About the Image(s)

Instead of birds, this month it's my friend's Rottweiler, Asali, as he frolics in the Davidson River, Brevard, North Carolina. Leica SLS-2, 90-280mm at 90mm, 1/1000, f2.8, ISO 250. Straight for the camera.

Great capture of Asali's expression...catch light in the eyes very nice addition. The orange color on the dog matches that of the background river. The spacing on the left of the image as the dog is facing in that direction.   Posted: 07/06/2021 14:17:19

What's not to love about this face! Nice background bokeh and the eye is sharp. I like the extra room at left to balance out the weight at right. I might use an AI Sharpen program to bring more detail into the nose and mouth.   Posted: 07/07/2021 15:26:15

This is a great image Sanford. Particularly as you say it's straight out of camera. Overall colour is great, as is Asali. Straight out from a dip in the river and eyeballing a treat, I can hear him thinking "Come onnnn". As said already, your composition is first rate, and the story telling is superb. Congratulations on a great image.   Posted: 07/08/2021 04:35:05

Great image and hard to believe it is right out of the camera. Well done. The only suggestion I would have is to have a little more space on the right side where it is cropping the ear. I think the Depth of Field is great in this image.   Posted: 07/14/2021 16:49:35

Nice capture Sanford. Sharp eye focus, great expression from the dog, and soft background make it a very well done photo.   Posted: 07/17/2021 21:10:02

Dynamism and softness would be the two terms I would use for this image. The golden background gives it a joyful look. It puts the dog in the foreground.
I like the dog's bright, lively eyes.
Nice image : thank you   Posted: 07/18/2021 01:27:57
