ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/50, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 23rd January 2006, 2:54pm,

I'm really happy with this shot and I particularly like the eyes and expression on the dog's face.

The hand belongs to a woman who saw me taking photos of the dog and asked if he was mine. I said that he wasn't (I don't know whether the dog was a he or a she but I'll assume he) and she started to stroke him so I carried on taking pictures. This one looked loads better than the straight shots of the dog on its own, although I wish I'd made more effort to get his front paws in. But saying that, the area was quite messy anyway and I might well have
ended up with quite a distracting foreground if the angle was wider.

Tomorrow's shot will be slightly more conventional, if you're starting to get bored of close-ups.

Yeah his eyes are cool. He looks terrified. Lots of detail in this one. Good work.

I really like this picture, but am curious why you chose to use the Sigma 18-50 with a Canon 20D. The camera is pretty close to the top of available digital cameras, but the Sigma 18-50 received pretty poor comments on Fred Miranda's review page.

I just thought the Sigma was great value for money. The optical quality isn't important for websize phots and it's not that bad anyway on the 18-50 when you stop down. Plus having constant F2.8 throughout the zoom is really handy. And for £230 it'd be rude not to.

Nice image! I like the detail in this one and they way you captured that dog really checking you out man. Nice work.
