jj,

Indeed a very nice dog. There's something special about herders. And great captures - suppose spotmetering and open aperture did the trick?

Thanks Torgny, glad you like them. Metering was spot and the aperture was 5.6 and 63.6mm focal length used.

JJ, I aagree with Torgny, very nice looking dog, and herders are so smart it can be scary. By nature, they watch you and figure out where you are going and WHEN you are going, and anticipate your moves. Much like they would with livestock.

Hope it's ok, JJ, to quote and comment on Robert's observations


Robert,

Yes, it's impossible to have any secrets on the really important things. Herders know it all before you do yourself

Very well put! Wasn't it you, Robert, who complained about the difficulty of formulating things in words and thereby the need for cameras. I have some own observations

Torgny
