for the iso ratings these look very good. a thumbs up to pentax. WB looks good also.

I didn't mess with the white balance--I could touch it up I suppose. The puppy is my son's. Her name is Brooke, and this was her first bath. I shot it with an Olympus D510Z (only 2 megapixels).

She's three or four years old, now. Had one litter of 13 pups (unplanned, of course). She's a good hunting dog and loves people, too. Labs are really nice dogs, so loyal and dedicated.

Don't you just love how you can't shoot sports with the Pentax? I'm impressed with how the DS handled your lighting - the WB isn't distracting in any way.

that can easily be fixed.. of course, you know that.
sorry, but being in rescue, i had to say it. labs are one of the most commonest breeds that are put down in shelters every day. please spay/neuter your pets.

I agree--about "taking care" of your pets. Luckily, all of the pups from Brooke's litter were placed in good homes. We see some of them regularly.

Actually I think that you did very well considering the lighting conditions of the gym. I didn't think that the little bit of yellowness was at all distracting. However, it seems to me that your point of focus was off. I believe your daughter is #23 correct and that she was your point of focus. In the first picture, the camera focussed on the girls looking up which was behind her. In the last picture it almost seems like the camera focussed on the kids on the bleachers. Sports photography can be tough if the autofocus point is guessing where you want it to lock on. I find it helpful if I just set the camera to have only 1 autofocus point, dead center. Then it will know exactly where I want it to lock on.
