Ok. This isn't my dog as I don't own any pets. I drove to the section of Montrose Beach where dogs are allowed to run without a leash. I shot in aperture mode.

Such a natural moment. I love it. Great depth of tone. The red bandana just draws your eye in. Superb.

Bill, this is a great shot. I love how it puts the dog in the context of what dogs love to do. And technically speaking, the lighting is great, the depth of field is excellent, and I like the crop, too.

Thank you for all the kind comments. I appreciate them and, yes, I had fun doing the shoot. There were so many great dogs at the beach.

Oh dear, someone had a LOT of fun didn't they? LOL! This is a classic candid shot of a dog at the beach and I love it for that. But for a portrait challene, it falls just a bit short. Maybe a slightly tighter crop on the left and top to really bring the dog main focus of the shot, leaving the beach and water as your negative space filler. The light is a bit bright but then again, how you gonna difuse the sun? :) I had this at a 5 but am going to bump up to a 6

this is one of my favorite dog shots..I like the place it was photographed and the idea of the dog being wet from swimming adds to the composition...good dof with focus on dog and beach directly in front of him.

Looks like a good time was had by all. Something different in terms of portrait, but I like it!
