Taken at a German Shepherd Specialty - first 6-9 month puppy dog. Cloned out lead. Used my 70-200 of course. Great idea to split off the birds to their own place
There is not as much cloning as you might think. The tree line is untouched. It is the bokeh you get with the 70-200. As for more cropping, if I did that, I would take away room for the dog to move. I want to give the illusion that the moving dog is going somewhere. Just my personal preference, but I never crop in so close that only the subject is left - unless I am cropping for a portrait.I think the copyright is less obtrusive than the cloning job. The dog, however, is excellent! How about a tighter crop?
