Very nice! I'm sure your help was much appreciated.
You really captured the character of that dog. I can feel his/her spirit in your images! Nice work!
What body & lenses did you use?

Great shots Dan, particularly the last one shown here (FQ2A9947). It seems really flying! You caught the action.
Looking through your gallery in Flickr, it's fun to see a lady which hairwise really looks like the dog (FQ2A0475)! :)
5D3+200mm f/2+talent = great results!

Hi Dan!

Again really nice work, I think, she will be pleased with your help  ;)

Some c+c, if you like to read it:
My fav is FQ2A9855, because i like the colour, the oof highlights, and most of all the diagonal line of the path.
Maybe you could even improve it by cutting of a little of the left part to get the dog a bit more decentered and the strenghen the diagonal line and the running action a bit more.
Just a bit to also reduce the in-focus grass which is leading the view to the left.

Also really wonderful is FQ2A9764:
Fur and water spraying - always great. And I believe it really improved putting it to b+w.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Yes! That's it. (Dudley - Cropped)
I hope, you see it in a similar way a I do and I could give you some good advice.

It would make no business sense for me to purchase that lens, but I've wanted it for a long time. I'll have to find a way!
Again...great shots!
