am I the only one who likes this photo?
With the head missing, It doesn't do much for me
yeah, I need that head. Good panning technique though. What was your shutterspeed?
yeah I want the head too I was mad that it came out this way,
I believe the shutter speed was about 125
It may be that you know more about what's happening than the image tells us.
wow! Some of y'all are harsh. LOL
Um, I like the panning too but it does seem strange without the head. Its creative though and that maked it worth keeping around I agree.
if you live by the out dated dogma of the self proclaimed 'institutes and associations of photography' and blind followers thereof, then you did indeed fail to 'create a portrait of a dog.' in that group, you will be the only one that likes this photo.
the subset of the population that views and teaches photography as an ever evolving art would certainly take pause to look at the merits of this photograph.
there are enough, just enough, circular patterns that encourage movement of the eye. the subject leading to 'off frame' includes enough information for the mind to understand it and the downward pointing of the paws leads the eyes/mind right back in to the photograph. the background and foreground are equally secondary in this photograph and do not force competition with each other nor with the subject.
i believe you did a find job of capturing a moment in our time space continuum. i don't know if this was a 'happy accident' or intentional, but this could lead to an interesting series.
What service do these two paragraphs serve but to present yourself as an somehow elevated being and part of "the subset of the population that views and teaches photography as an ever evolving art " and be condescending to those who don't care for it as those who "live by the out dated dogma of the self proclaimed 'institutes and associations of photography' and blind followers thereof"
Critique the picture as presented - don't attack the other posters - even in a passive-aggressive way.
It just might be that "kind" of dog.
My dog has no nose.
And sometimes folks ask me, "How does he smell?"
No - I like it.
