    Here's a quick selection of my latest photo's from this week, been doing some animal photography this week by chance, thought some of them came out well. All comments & suggestions welcome.

    UPDATE, pictures back up, host probs :(

    This one is a baby sparrow I found last night after a cat ran off and left it. Liked how this one came out. Shame i had to leave it for the cats, but thats natures way..

    Bruce the springer spaniel is obviously up to something, you can see the glint in his eye ;)

    The first one is really good, with a great composition, and depressing at the same time.

    The red x's are really nicely done too. :)

    As someone who has "notorious problems" with wide angle shots herself, I do like your second photo here, the "walk in the countryside"! To me, this just "hits the theme".

    OF COURSE, I like the third one with the sun rays through the trees, but then I am wondering if you did something to it to enhance them so?

    The glint in Bruce's eye is --- mischievous ;).
    I think I'd also like that one as a "portrait only" crop, i.e. just Bruce's face and "smile". (Well, this is just me wondering aloud...)

    The sun through the tree's is un-enhanced, just managed to spot it at the right time, didn't even adjust Brightness/contrast on it :)

    Oh and heres the portrait of bruce as you asked :p

    This is really a nice group of images. Knowing the story behind #1 makes it a bit haunting. I wish there were a tad more information in the shadow of the bird; I find it a too dark. Good, but too dark.

    Your dog photos are really fine! You've captured some excellent animal moments and expressions here. :D

    Agreed, Im using a canon G5 myself, tried using 3 sec exposure with a f2 ap. Couldn't really go longer on the shutter as it was moving about quiet a bit.

    Any suggestion's on how to get more light on the shadows? Was using iso 400 on the camera but it didn't enhance the light as much as i would have hoped.

    Great shots, especially the last one.

    just have to say....

    Where did you find a six legged dog??? :wink:
    or if it's not six legged, I now classify dog butt sniffing as an extreme sport!!!
