Post challenge: OH! THANKS BUNCHES, folks!

I cringed when I read the challenge topic... not something I like or excel at... But, my wonderful team has dragged me into the playoffs of DPL... so I felt the need to do my best (being near the bottom of our team... *sigh*)

I wanted the dogs "fighting" as they play almost all day long together... snarling and growling over things...

I thought it would be fun to get their faces in focus while their bodies swirled about.

That didn't work. They didn't fight. *rolleyes*

So, I begged son to come out with me and throw the ball for me. I'd tried to do it myself... Throw, fix camera, Miss.

Throw, fix camera more quickly. Miss.

You get the idea.

Anyway... I think this was just a fluke more than skill... but I do love the image.

THANKS for your votes and wonderful comments, folks!!

very nice capture but too much noise reduction, you lost all the texture in the dog
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2011 01:50:23 AM
I'm going to guess this is Lydia and I know you don't like blur, but this is quite nicely done!

Very interesting image. The dog's face looks a tad over done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2011 09:13:07 AM
Great capture in a motion blue challenge. Spot on focus on shepherd face bring the photograph to life. Nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2011 07:51:02 AM
very cool, I like the concentration on the face of the dog in the lead and the fact that the face is in focus give the eye something to rest on, very well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2011 04:54:00 AM
Nicely done. Maybe a bit of over processing as it looks overly smoother to my eye but an excellent image non the less. 9 from me.
