Parker at Full Speed

This is our dog Parker.  From the day we got her she has understood that when we say 'come' there are good things awaiting and she barrels toward us with the throttle wide open every time.  In the distance is Angus, our delighful 14 year old Welsh Springer Spaniel.  The other old dog, the equally delightful Jasper, is probably down that path somewhere chewing on an old stick.

The best part of this photo is the very shallow depth of field.  Parker's face and the grass at her feet are in perfect focus while the immediate foreground and the terrain behind her is blurry.  The eye tends to fix on the sharpest part of a photo; even though her face fills only about 10% of the frame this photo is all about Parker and her expression.

Canon 5dII with Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS Lens.  ISO 200; lens set at 200mm; F3.2; shutter speed 1/640 sec.  RAW file processed in Adobe Lightroom 3.0 with final edit in Adobe Photoshop 4.0.
