Eysha - I can understand why you love this pic, the dog is so cute and you love your dog. But the photo? At first glance, I struggle to find where to fix my sight. Neither the dog nor the flower is in right focus, and your signature is too distracting at that place. I hope you will take this in the right spirit.

An excellent snap of your best pal - love it. My dog does the same thing and seems to like sniffing the flowers. I know what you mean, sometimes you just have to take the photo or you miss the moment.

What a great fun shot. The most important thing is when the shot is special to you.

Eysha,

what counts is the spirit of a picture not always the technical perfection and in this picture is a lot of soul.

Cheers,

Stefan

Yes, these moments are very special, so sometimes you just have to take the shot. My recommendation is, once you have ensured you have at least one shot, then take some time and try to get a really good shot. This way, even the moment is gone, you at least have that first one shot!

Hi Eysha,

I take a lot of photos like that, too. They are memory makers for me and a way of journaling without a pen.

Today, a fawn from last year came by. She was born so late in the season, and was so tiny, I never thought she'd make it through the winter; but she did, and today I captured this photo. I'm totally happy with it not for the quality of the image, but for everything it tells me and the way I feel when I look at it (and that she stood still long enough for me to snap the pic). And next year, or the year after when you look at the photo of your dog or I look at the photo of that little fawn, it will remind us of those special moments.

Thanks Laurel99, i have to agree with you. My photo is a special photo and will last as a reminder for years and years of a beautiful dog, friend and companion and each time we look at it we will smile remembering his nosyness and fun loving ways.
I am pleased the fawn survived too and it is a good photo for the reasons you mention.
Not all photos are technically correct and why should they be, my photo was for me and i was just sharing it, not offering it for sale etc, lol.
