    Hey all.

    The following were taken with a Nikon F55 on Kodak 400 ISO film. The conditions were clear and cold. I am not sure how to make the sky blue in my photos? :confused: It never comes out right.

    The subject is my German Shepherd Bina (Bee-nah) which is der deutsch for honeybee.

    All criticism and suggestions welcome

    I like pictures 4 and 9.
    The noise is very noticeable probably because the relative high ISO.

    Nice dog :thumbup:

    Good looking dog! Try posting less pics for more replies, though. Maybe just your favorite 3 or 4.... That being said, the only one that jumps out at me is 13... The rest look like common snap shots. Maybe a little more open aperture would've helped focus us more on the dog, and blurred out the rest.

    Thanks for the advice. I have removed 5 of the images to help loading times.

    Open the aperture to blur the background. I will def try that next time.

    I don't have time to give you a critique but let me just tell you that these pictures put a smile on my face. Such a wonderful dog. I have never owned a German Shepherd but I heard that are great.

    Happy Holidays!
