Challenge: Games II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Location: my home
Date: Apr 27, 2008
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/80
Date Uploaded: Apr 27, 2008

I went for the illusion of a "high stakes" poker game, with the blank stare of my dog trying to back you down. Car keys were thrown into the pot along with a dollar bill for humor, I doubt anyone will notice the keys.

I'm sure I'll get comments about the lighting. All I had to work with was room lights and my 580EXII which created two different "hues" of lights, the left and right reflections on the chair is where it is most obvious.

It was a fun shot and not looking to get a high score, especially how DPC hates to vote pet pictures high when not a specific pet challenge.
