Took these a couple of days ago in the Spenceville Wildlife area...I liked them, but I'm sure someone can pick out a couple of area's that could be better...

Thanks all

They are far too small to comment on?

Really have issues with re sizing this and still keeping it in the 150 range. They tend to be distorted from what is there best size. Anyway, these may be larger

They are best at 2235 X 2288 with Mattie's Profile, and 1897 X 650 for the frog eyes...

So you are custom framing them then?

I like the picture of the dog but it just seems to lack that bit of impact that makes a lot of difference. One thing you perhaps could have done, and I realise it's difficult when trying to photograph an animal, is to have reflected some light - not flash - into the right eye.

yep

Do you not make duplicates of your photos? One for you to do with what you wish, and the other for posting?Maybe thats just me..I keep mine usually at 8X10, or 2X3...

Those sizes mess up these particular pics. The 8X10 would work for Mattie, but not the frog. Ill try it...And I do keep the originals, and the re-sizes depending on what I'm gonna do with them.

Thanks woodworker...That is a good thought

The frog looks a little lonely, centered in the frame. I'm thinking ROT for that one.

To me, the dog looks underexposed. The light is coming from behind the dog (viewer's left), so none of it is lighting up his face. It seems the bright background was balanced off the dark subject, assuming you let the camera choose the exposure. This is one situation where you should increase the exposure to get the dog exposed properly, even if the background gets too hot.
