    C&C welcome, as always.

    I was playing around with the 50 and lighting. My dog is one of the hardest subjects for me to shoot, because she doesn't like having things pointed at her-cameras, fingers, newspapers, bows and arrows.... So I had to wait until she was sleeping to get a good picture. The picture may look crooked, but that's due to her 120 lbs pushing that one cushion down.

    bows and arrows??? what the heck are you trying to do to your dog??? I've found it very hard to get pics of dogs.. they are just so stubborn.. glad you could get one of him as for CC its a little hot in the bottom right corner.. i'm guessing thats where your main light was?

    i love your photo stsinner. really love it. its just simply your dog. nothing distracting in it. i think that would be a good one to frame.

    Thank you, FlowerChild. I don't play with the 50 much, because I'm not very good with it, but in this picture, her face seems to be perfectly in focus and the rest of her not. I finally achieved a good picture with that tricky lens that seems to have its own mind when it comes to focus.
