A friend's dog agreed to sit still for just a few seconds.........

Had to use flash as the light was not good.

Does seem to be a good doggie. I like the color shot better then black and white. I imagine that in color that tongue shines a bit in the second shot with the flash used though based on my experiences.

IMHO .....way too much sharpness applied......It seems you tried to make up for the NR of the FZ18 by oversharpening.....I also am not a fan of B&W

The jaggies in the whiskers in the dog can suggest a bit of oversharpening, or the resize for post could be the culprit.

The first one looks very good but the flash looks a bit obvious. Using flash so that is does not look obvious is what needs to be done here. If flash output is adjustable then give that a try. Being that it is a pet. Getting a few shots is all that you will be able to get and having the time to tweak for the right look is not available.

The second one shows a bit more in what is obvious flash used. The shadow on the tongue from the roof of his mouth for one and the contrast on his head shows it a bit blown out.

When taking pet photos try to get down a bit more at their level also. The top down perspective is not as pleasing or delivering the shot one is looking for.

I am a huge fan of black and white but not for all shots.

Mahalo,

Tom
