Calendar Contest - Border Collies in Action Calendar

Three of our photographs will be featured in the Border Collies in Action 2011 calendar.  Two will be featured on 'month' pages and one is an honorable mention and will be featured as a smaller photo.

Here are our pictures that were selected.

A portrait of "Brynn".  This is one of my favorite pictures of her.  You can see the kids reflected in her eyes and her expression shows how much she adores them.  The way she has tilted her head is so typical for her - inquisitive and anticipating the next move.  She is wet from playing in water - her second favorite thing in the world.  Technically the picture is spot on perfect - but the back ground was less than desirable so I overlay-ed a texture to mask the ugliness behind her.  I love the whole effect. 

Technical Mumbo Jumbo:
Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Exposure: 0.005 sec (1/200)
Aperture: f/5.0
Focal Length: 210 mm
ISO Speed: 400

"Ranger & Bonnie"  Another one of my favorite shots.  Just two dogs having fun racing through the water.  What I really love about this shot is the fact that I did little to no post processing (other than a crop) just one of those lucky shots straight out of the camera that captured their personalities perfectly.

Technical Mumbo Jumbo:
Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Exposure: 0.002 sec (1/640)
Aperture: f/5.6
Focal Length: 300 mm
ISO Speed: 1000

The honorable mention is "Ranger under a Log"  Another straight out of the camera lucky shot.  No post processing - other than a quick crop. This shot was a complete accident.  Ranger had been hopping under this huge log at the river, digging furiously in the sand, the popping his head out to see if he got the other dog's attention.  The sunlight lit up his eyes and face perfectly...his expression makes me smile.  Quintessential Ranger. 

Technical Mumbo Jumbo:
Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Exposure: 0.001 sec (1/1000)
Aperture: f/5.0
Focal Length: 90 mm
ISO Speed: 160
