This image required a lot of cloning because there was a lot of toys on the floor and a magazine on top of the dog. I had two photos, one with good overall composition but without the cute expression on the dog's face and a second that didn't work except for the dog's expression. I decided to copy the dog's eyes from one image and paste them into this image resulting in what I consider a very cute photo. I have since realized that I should crop the image tighter on the left and right.
I like the message that the photo envokes where the dog is thinking something like; "I thought I was a bird dog not a jungle gym!"

Nice! As far as my best Photoshop work, it would have to be this, originally made from a scanned B&W print:

:-) what can I say .... it was the first shot here on DPC that I felt was more than half-decent.

My first attempt at getting a picture out of my head and onto 'film.' Knowing what I do now, the picture would be probably 10 times better but its no longer in my head. My second ever challenge entry and my first real go at editing in photoshop.

This was one of the first candid shots I ever did where the subject was aware of me... I was very nervous about this, but being on my own in a foreign country where nobody spoke English pushed me into it!
He was actually very grumpy, but I caught him smiling here because someone dropped all their shopping.
I can walk up to any stranger now and shove a 12mm lens up their nose without any embarassment, but this shot was my turning point.

Heh, great story, BobsterLobster! I'm still at the 'afraid to approach strangers with a camera' stage. Hope I get over it someday.

THIS is the reason I'm an obsessive photographer. Just a few weeks after I got my first prosumer camera, my sister's dachshund had puppies. I had a whole week to think about how I wanted to shoot them, made a plan, then drove the 2 hours to her house FULL of camera gear, props and determination. MUCH to my amazement, the shots came out great... and I've been addicted ever since! Thanks, sis. :)

The one I am most proud of is actually in an upcoming challenge right now. But I will post it afterwards and why later. :)

I guess it would have to be my old buddy and ribbon winner - the fly.

I am proud of this shot of my oldest son, because he really does explore his world with that look of wonder...STILL. This photo also was the Sweepstates winner at one of our local photo shows in the People Category. (Sweepstates=overall winner=Rosette Ribbon)

Phil, it would definately have to be this shot, as in "my" opinion, this is one of the "BEST" macro shots I have ever seen.....

I like this photo because it almost conveys how beautiful she looks to me.
