This is a super photo Susan! I love the composition overall... how the perspectives are in alignment, e.g. the dog's nose runs parallel to the deck planks. Great capture! #4900589

Steven, thank you so much! I worried that without the DOF it has, the lines would look like they were coming out of her head and nose! Luckily, that wasn't the case. It was a thrill for this photo to get a finalist, because our Lola girl, at age 13, is slowing down :( That I have a great photo like this of her is the sweetest for me!!!! Thanks again! #4902482

This must be the nosy GSD :-) LOve the look she is giving you! #10320074

Hi Jill, this is Lola who passed a few years ago. We had an awesome connection but it's my current GSD, Sarge, who is so dang nosy! And I'm just realizing I don't have any shots of him in my gallery! I will have to fix that and hope that I get a capture as amazing as yours! Thanks for looking :) #10320136

Lovely Lola and her over the shoulder soulful look. The background is the deck that I edited with a little clone repair (paint) and softened for more DOF effect. F5.6, 1/60 shutter, natural evening light at 7pm.
