Our little dog LOVES to play fetch. So I thought I'd get down to her level and have my daughter throw her favorite toy. Here are the results.

1. Getting Set

2. Getting up to speed

I think a flash might have helped, in that it would have picked up some of the darker areas , and allowed you to expose the natural light slightly less, keeping some of the dog's whiter hair from blowing out. I'd also probably try a bit of highlight reduction, then adding a bit of exposure in post. I'd also probably warm them up some.

I think they're all well composed though.

Seeing as there are threads on here for R/C car racing, horse jumping, frisbee golf, indoor rock climbing....I thought so. Don't like dogs?

Besides, it's a mystery. Will the dog ultimately prevail over the chew toy? Or will she fail and mope?

I'm not so sure that your dog is too blue, since she most likely isn't pure white. Overall I really like the set. Not too thrilled with picture #1 as it's more of a snap shot. Also looks really tilted as everything is leaning towards the right, yet the lawn seems level. Picture#2 has great action, and a great facial expression, but that white blob in the background is very distracting. Pictures 3 & 4 are just super. I really like both the composition, and the action. Getting down to her level really paid off big time. Picture #5 is a solid portrait, even though she's dead center it works for me of one pooped dog.

I guess it depends on who's playing!
