  #235 Water, Water, Everywhere
Entry 20 of 23
   
 
Do the shake....       ©2020 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-G80       20th place, 32 points
1/400s, f6.3, ISO 200, 280mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Sharpen, levels, crop       Extra Info: I waited for about 10 minutes while this dog swam up and down the shore, hoping it would get out and shake off the water dramatically in he evening light.

When it finally emerged from the sea, it just stood there, dripping. So this was the only shot which showed a little shaken water.

The fact you can't see the dog clearly should help with the focus of the picture being on the water.... ;-)

    thanks everyone for the comments. Dropping ISO would have helped, but the angle of light means that the dog's face would still have been shaded.

    I like the fact that you see more of the water than the dog. Actually the dog is almost unrecognizable which keeps this image on theme.

    Sorry the dog wouldn't co-operate :-), however this is still a neat shot.

    At first look, this might seem to be more a picture of a dog than of water. But when you consider that what the dog is doing is all about the water, it fits the theme quite well. Like the sharply-focused patterns in the waves, but if we could see more of the dog' face it would add appeal.

    I think your explanation just confirms what every photographer experiences. Instead of wait and be rewarded, you wait and are frustrated, never getting the shot.
I disagree with the part about focus on the water. Everyone's looking at the dog and it is under exposed and blurry. 1/400s was too slow and if you don't have the shot you don't have the shot. Quite the reach at 280mm and in this light for even pro equipment so you haven't done too badly all things considered. But sometimes you aim lower for the equipment you have.
