l like almost everything about this one-lighting, angle of the dog's face, background. But the mouth is cropped at the bottom. Wasn't done intentionally. Didn't even notice it until l was looking at images on the monitor at home. ls the crop acceptable or does it take away from the image? Shooting these dogs with a 50 1.8 last time needed me to get so close to them. So l used the 85 1.8 for this shot and the others and l had to back way away. l need a 70mm 1.8 :)

Bill, I agree with Jim.  It is a bit tight. 

 

Of course, Fido doesn't always want to sit still, so very nice shot.  :)

Thanks Jim and Mark. Yes it's cropped tighter than what l wanted, but l still consider it a keeper.

Yep me too -- even a half inch below the chin would have been better.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
