A few months ago, Caesar was nearly given away. We'd had him a very short time and things weren't looking good between him and my son. Caesar didn't understand that small humans still outranked him in the pecking order. Some time spent with a dog handler saved the day and now the two of them are best friends and Caesar is very much an important part of my sons life.

I think I'm going to do a set of images for this macro side challenge that reflect "things" that are important to my son in everyday life. Put them together at the end and make a decent size print or poster for him.

For those curious... :-)

Nice job on the DOF. I like how the color in the catchlight matches the fur in places.

You have captured the sweetness of his eyes (I'm curious about that poster, I bet it's going to look amazing!)

I like the picture within the picture of his eye. The DOF directs my attention to the eye and holds it there. Usually, I like to roam the whole image, but here, I have enjoyed roaming inside the eye.

I LOVE this! Is Caesar a German Shepard? He has a beautiful eye!

Nice eye shot. Great colours and clarity. Glad to hear that the pecking order has been sorted.

This is one of the nicest eye shots I have seen. I like the color combo in the eye in this shot, and that the focus and centered composition draws us to the center of attention the way it does.
