    Hi all
    This little guy isn't still very often. He is seldom without at least one leaf attached to that mop of fluff. Regular brush outs required with the clone tool and the non-digital brush.

    It was overcast and drizzling. Did I get enough contrast and pop in this picture?

    Cute pup David. I think that you got good contrast, but it is a tad on the soft side. What were your shutter and aperture settings?

    Frank,

    125, f2.2, iso560. Narrow dof and shutter not quite fast enough to stop all the motion will do it everytime.
    Thanks

    David,

    I think the thing that got you was the f2.2. That is of course if you can get this little guy to sit still long enough to get a shot off. Flash may be needed in the conditions that you shot this one in. :smile:
