photoblog image Super Dangerous Canadian Wild Polar Dog

Super Dangerous Canadian Wild Polar Dog

... Okay, so maybe it isn't actually a Super Dangerous Canadian Wild Polar Dog. This is just a very happy dog enjoying the snow and ice the the cost of Lake Ontario in Toronto. I snapped this image this while on an outting to Toronto's 'The Beach' neighbourhood on February 18, 2007.

Shot with my new (used) 50-200mm (100-400mm equiv) Olympus Zuiko lens.

I'm not sure if this is my favorite picture of yours... or that one I claimed to "favorite" a few days back smile
A very nice picture of freedom and optimism smile
Almost identical to my dog who passed on five years ago. I still mis her so it was very nice to ss this. The sparkly water makes this a really wonderful photo.
why did you have to shoot the beast? it looks friendly enough...
Iain Myrans: lol. good point, i'll change my wording in the description to 'photogrpahed' rather than 'shot'. smile
Beautiful shot! Not so easy getting the exposure right in very white reflective conditions. Gorgeous dog too!
Iain Myrans: It is hard. I shot in RAW mode to make my life a bit easier to control that exposure in 16bit afterwards so I recommend doing that if you end up in that situation. I also bracketed a few stops (but of course the dog was moving too so that was a challenge). Thanks for the comment.
LOL! From the thumbnails, I initially thought you did indeed capture some wild "beast". wink
Clearly a highly dangerous beast. A jolly good idea to shoot with a 400mm (equivalent) lens. I applaud your courage. A super photo has resulted.
Very Well catched Lain... The small white spots in blue give a very nice light.
WOW, another great picture, great reflections on water and colour balance! Have you applied any filters at all?
Iain Myrans: Hey Monika, Nope no filters or anything. This is straight out of the camera with a slight crop --- that's it. That Olympus Digital Zuiko is a very nice lens! I'm very very pleased with it. The colour reproduction and the way it handles highlight and shadow really bring out the power of the camera body which I had not seen before. It's very capable in high light and back light situations. Thanks for the comment! I do appreciate it! smile
super
