Marshall woods shots

Just took a few shots of Marshall in the woods behind my house, Nikon D60. Still trying to learn; any comments/suggestions are welcomed

A few more shots of Marshall. I'm trying to get better with my camera, any comments are welcomed

I think those are great shots of your boy. I like that you get down to his level to take the shot. In a couple of the shots you cropped off his tail or foot.

Wonderful shots! There is something about a golden in black and white that is unique and just beautiful. I like the last picture the best with the amber color?

Your boy is outstanding!

Deb & My Golden Kids
Kye & Coop - the loves of my life
My little Biewer Yorkies - all 7 of them!
Sadie & Okey - my mini aussies

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.

Great shot and a beautiful golden. There are many rules in photography but the really great artist don't care about any rule. ( Every rule is made to be broken )

Some rules

Like Oaklys Dad said; don't crop a foot, tail or any thing if it is only a very small piece. Crop firm or don't.



The rules of thirds is another one You first photo would look like this : (I used a part of your photo to make it more wide)

Thanks! I have always liked shots at the same level as the subject, it seems more natural looking to me. After I posted, I realized where I had cropped...thanks again for the comments!
