Tricky to get at her running speed and this DOF...

Hours from the deadline and have realised you've probably seen enough dog pictures this last week. :-(

Absolutely right Tom - I focused on a fixed point and shot at 11fps as my wife threw the dog's toy past me. I have a number of more engaging dog poses - completely mid air for example - where she wasn't in the plane of focus.

It's one of the reasons I got the SL, to be able to get this sort of dynamic shot, my M240 wouldn't have made it so achievable.

Oh what a treat to see 2 dogs in the top 5. Always a pleasure to see your dog as it looks quite a character. The shallow DOF works really well here. Congrats on the HM.

Excellent. I am a sucker for a good dog pic. Recognize the dog. Suspect I know the lens.

Nice shot but the DOF doesn't look natural?
