A cover, in fact:-)

A friend that I train dogss with submitted a photo of mine (of his dog) to a Spaniel magazine. The zest of it was that they selected a monthly winner for twelve months and the subscribers voted for thie choice of those twelve photos to be on the cover of their fall issue.

There's the photo:

The cover can be seen here:

The shot was from a while ago with my old E500 and 50-200

Thank you all for the kind comments.

My motovation is to give the owners of the dogs the chance to get action photos of their dogs. As much as I'm getting a kick out of this, my friend is popping with pride that his dog is on the cover of that magazine. That's what puts the smile on my face.

I'm a bit specialized with my photography,but there aren'tmany out there in the spaniel sports capturing images.

Thanks again,


And my Spanielsport site if your interested:

Thanks for that.

For what its worth, other than preference for warmer than normal white balance, there is no special effects involved. There was little other than browns in the photo.
