The squirrels have been quite active getting ready for winter. Zeus always has his eye on them.

very nice

the picture is a bit small to tell "how" sharp it is...

the DOF is very nice, i like the leaves on the ground, and the look in it's eye...

great job!

I shrank it quite a bit because I'm not sure what's considered "too big" here, I recently rediscovered my 85mm 1.8 prime. I've been lazy lately always using a zoom it seems, I forgot how nice a shot I could get with a nice prime.



I think I'll try a ptint right now and see what I get. Thanks for the comments Vito. :-)

well...it's a perfect size for the internet...but the size for quality is a bit bigger

i usually have the shot itself 600 pixels on it's long side, and then add the frame..

btw...

wat camera are you shooting with?

I like it, the background looks really nice and suits the dogs color.

A little later in the fall when there are more leaves on the ground he's almost invisible.
