Bentley by spyed Bentley by spyed
Focused on his ear, and not his eyes where I wanted but ... using a Leica is new to me.

By the way, this is Bentley... English Setter.. 4 years old.

This is made with a Leica M9 taken at about 1.4. That should impress some of you. Many thanks to `cweeks for letting me play with it, I look forward to walking the street with it sometime.

That M9 is......... just very nice. I'm not sure if it's the M9 or just the feeling of shooting with a Leica, I just love how focusing works and how the snap doesn't close the shutter on you and you're left in the moment memorizing the snap you took. I think it's mostly a gift to the photographer and not necessarily the end viewer of the photograph since you're left with a more vivid image of your own snap becuase you were permitted to experience the shot without the shutter blinding you.

Anyway, for $8k I think I'll hold off and leave these toys to the pros. But I certainly felt like hugging the thing.

I love the look. Usually see dogs looking like they did something wrong but to see one looking back at you like he's saying Bad Human is great. Pretty dog too and an interesting personality I am sure.

My brother-in-law's camera was thousands of dollars and difficult for me to hold, but it did take great pictures at the beginning of the digital age. When he first purchased his setup with the background screen, printer and camera, do believe he paid around $50,000 for it all :wow: :faint: ~ thankfully, prices have come down since then.

The dog is precious and yes the ears do seem to be the focus of the picture :camera:

Yesterday I was doing some work and there was one who looked liked this fella because of the color of the fur,it was a cocker spaniel.
Lets hope someone will adopt him soon.

I like the eyes.
Nice angle.

Of course it would have been awesome if you got the focus on his eyes, but it actually doesn't look too bad on his ears. At least it wasn't on his eyes!

Quite like the light in this and the overall warmth of it. Bently's expression is just too cool. Nice one :D

I actually like the focus on the ears. Gives the image something..

The detail in the photograph itself is pretty incredible. Guess it should be for $8k though, right?

My best friend's dog was Harley. He had been her uncle's pet, a gift because he wanted a motorcycle and this way her family could joke about getting him a Harley.
