Default Spring is coming!

So, my Dog, Dobby, is scared of my camera. which makes it really fun for me to try to go for walks with her and my camera...

Both of these photos are a bit blurry from Dobby pulling on her leash, but you can get an idea of the view from my neighbor's yard

I can totally sympathise with blurred shots caused by your dog pulling on her lead ! The last shot made me smile

Pity about the blurring in #2 - it looked like a cracker !

Hi,
Hope you don't mind, I had a tweak at #2 with Focus magic, but not sure if the shot was affected equally all over by the shift, perspective could cause unequal effects I think. Best I could get as below. ... Jack

I like Dobby, he looks like a fun fellow to have around (even if he won't stand still for long, he looks very high energy). Jack's edit makes it look more painterly instead of blurred, rather a neat effect. And I think you should re-take that one with either Dobby tied up or else with the camera on a separate, sturdy surface like a tripod. The view looks beautiful and that sunset was gorgeous.

Some really nice photos, despite Dobby's "assistance!" If you like what focusmagic did to your sunset shot, let me know and I'll tell you about a free software that works almost as well..

Especially nice detail shots - love the crabapple (?) buds for the rich color and nice use of DOF, and the great lines and textures in that first maple leaf photo!
