    With the camera of course. :smile:



    My old guy Dusty, 12 years old, reigning the garden with his scepter.

    Two of his daughters Mille and Dixie. (I know there's a little bit of blown highlights :redface:)

  2. I always love your images of these fine animals, Torben. Dusty looks like he's earned his right to reign over the garden!

    Beautiful shots..

    See a tad green color cast on the first two. Really hard to keep it away.

    I shot a couple of cocker spanial puppys , 8mo. yesterday... Yikess, green grass and bushes.;>))))
    Not sure I got rid of all of it. After awhile you can't see it.

    Thanks David. Old dogs have a charm of their own.

    Thanks Gale. I think you are right at least on the second shot. The problem is in sunshine with the shadow areas there tend to be a greenish or bluish cast on the white dogs if you use the highligt/shadow tool. I'll work a little more on those shots.

    Nice shots you've got. I love that Molly girl.

    Beautiful! How much time do you spend grooming these guys daily? My samoyed needed twice daily grooming, but he had the best temperament, always a sweet kid.
     
  12. Your dogs are just beautiful. But, how do you tell them apart (at least those who are of about same age)?

    Thanks Torben..

    I have about 20 more to process. yikessss
     
  14. Beautiful shots of some beautiful animals. I just want to hug them and bury my face in their fur!

    Thanks Stephanie. When they are shedding (which is right now :eek:) they are groomed about twice a week for 10 minutes each. When they are not shedding they can go for a month with being groomed. My dog have a shorter and more standout coat than the more English type with lots of coat. Like photography it's a matter of using the right tools and having experience. :biggrin:

    Thanks Daniel. They are really very different in facial expression. Eyes and ears, tailcarriage and a lot of other things are different so it's not a problem to tell them apart. Reminds me of a Chinese proffessor who witnessed in the O. J. Simpson case. When asked if he could recognize a certain white person he replied: "No, they all look alike". :biggrin:
