I woke up an hour early so I could get to the park before work. I've always been a night owl, so this is a big change for me. I didn't even need the alarm to go off, because I was so excited to get to the park.

Dogs - I love them so much, and miss having one. Seeing the new pups in the park was very tempting. The one year old standard poodle had an adorable bouncy run. I never really appreciated poodles in the past. They are lovely dogs. The mixed puppy in 7, 8 and 9 is a dream dog. Smart, friendly, attentive and so beautiful.

Somebody remind me of all the reasons not to get a dog. Please.

JuliaGotz I'm going to try that, Ottosson. I didn't use flash. Maybe I'll try that next time. But dogs don't like flash, and then they get camera shy.

The light got much brighter at the end, and finally I got some crisper shots. Early morning light is beautiful, but it was overcast, and it's hard to catch fast action in low light.

krx72 I grew up with Poodles, yappy one's at that, and they were very much my mom's dogs.... I have many reasons why not to get a dog!

Nice shots - I prefer the colour one's - I'd love to see what 'What you say' and 'Gonna be...' would look like in colour per 'new kid' - any reason why you desaturated or did you shoot with b&w setting?
krx72 · 2007-06-07: 22:19
JuliaGotz krx, no matter if I shoot colour or b&w, I'm working on looking in terms of light and contrast. Dropping out the colour when I look at the pictures gives me more information on how I'm doing with my awareness of light.

Standard poodles seem pretty different from the miniatures or toys - more like the even tempered hunting dogs they started out as. Was it standard poodles that you knew to be yappy?
JuliaGotz · 2007-06-07: 23:01
krx72 we had regular poodles, the little ones!

colour or b&w they're great shots - 'new one' has such nice colour, the snippets of brown is what gets lost somewhat in the b&w (melds with background)... the three colours in the dog work really well with the grass (just my thoughts)

Vedemus Great shots julia!

Rasadesign Wow.................I love this set espesially # 8
Rasadesign · 2007-06-08: 13:06
JuliaGotz Yes, I see how the puppy's markings are better in colour.

Thanks to you all for your great comments, and especially for constructive criticism and suggestions.

Soyam charming set and really cute dogs!

Burstmode "What you say?" is fabulous...I think I must post a few puppy photos, too.

Carley I love this set! The dogs are adorable....and the shot of the person practicing qigong in the park is lovely!

t2d4th Number 8 is so amazing. The exposure is dead on and the expression on the puppy's face if wonderful.
t2d4th · 2007-06-10: 06:33
????? Wow - what a lively set - so exciting.

#8 - that dog is just delightful and your picture/caption are just perfect. Reminds me of going for a portrait and the photographer positioning your body parts - did you twist the dog to that posture?
