    Just two words for you Peter. Love it.
    Great colors are you using a custom curve or is that right from the D2X?
     
  3. Thanks Tim - the young lady and her dog had the same expression and concentration....... no custom curve, just RAW processed in NC4.3
     
  4. Very nice shot Peter. The concentration of the young lady and her dog is super. Love the way you chose to de-emphasize the participants in favor of the young lady.

    Yes I have to agree with Godon.
    Makes the shot very powerful. Just draws me right to the little girl and the dog.

    Peter. The girl's expression / concentration alone is great but the addition of the dog makes it brilliant. There is an innocence coupled with curiosity that they both seem to share. Excellent. Thanks.

    Nice work, Peter,

    if that was shot with your 17-55, I'll betcha it was cropped pretty heavily, no? That's one really great thing about the 2X. Love the shot!
     
  8. Wow! I actually love it!

    Steve, with my media pass I was able to get right there..not a millimeter cropped off at all.......Thanks. I don't know why, maybe it's one of my early mentors who drummed this into my head but I feel I've failed to concentrate on the composition when when I crop. Silly, hey?

    Admirable yes, silly no. I feel significant cropping destroys a photo.

    Love the composition and lighting on this shot.
