Veronica S. McGinnity February 21, 2008

This is an awesome shot! Cute how they are all three lined up on the bed! What kind of dog is that? What gorgeous eyes he/she has! #5528541

Shane Sitter February 21, 2008

Veronica the dog is a Weimaraner. She is my baby but definitely is high maintenance. She takes a pretty good picture, doesn't she???

Oh and thank you for the very nice comment.

Veronica is as much of a poser as your kids!! Lol!! This is adorable! #5528584

Shane Sitter February 21, 2008

Oops I gave the impression that the dog was named Veronica. Actually I was replying to Veronica's comment about what type of dog. Sorry about that. Been a long day and all of us are sick. \

Jen Orbistondo February 22, 2008

This is such a great shot! I love it! How do you get such great clarity across all the subjects but still have good DOF in the background? Every time I try to shoot with my 50mm with 2 or more people one of the people is blurry. Thanks!!!! Jen #5531464

Shane Sitter February 22, 2008

Thanks Jen for the comment. I think I got lucky on this one. Actually I wish the dogs eyes were a little sharper in this but it will do. I am just thankful that I got a picture of the three of them together and all of them looking at me. I do know that I was backed up against the wall and almost hanging out the window with the 50mm. I always choose my focus points and in this one I think that I focuses on my sons eye and used the focus point closest to my sons eye placing it on his eye. #5531693

Chris Henning February 26, 2008

This is beautiful and I will say winner! I have the same problem as Jennifer stated even when I shoot f11. This image should be a huge gallery wrap above a fireplace. Stunningly gorgeous, Shane!! #5556265

Shane Sitter February 26, 2008

Thanks Chris! Really appreciate the nice compliment. I am going to do this one as a gallery wrap.
