Kai is very relaxed today

I was messing around with indoor shots using no flash. Here are the results:

Beautiful Dog

Those are terrific pics of your Lab. We have a black Lab that travelled extensively with us in the A/S MHs that we have owned - He learned exactly how to exit and enter great, but now he has gotten quite old (about 13 or 13) and we are worried about him. He has lost his hearing, and has trouble getting up and down steps. We are dreading arrival of "that time" when convention says he should be put to sleep -what is your position on that

Nice captures of a beautiful dog!

I've seen the Forums software darken the exposure on shots I've uploaded. Just playing around a bit ... copied one of your shots and modified the brightness in a simple program that was packaged with my computer. That brightened the background furniture quite a bit but would have to go into Photoshop Elements to reverse just that one part. Just experimenting... Thanks for sharing, Cameron. Thoughts on what I've done? I didn't change the photo size. How does yours appear in posts at full size?

Thank you for the compliments. Kai is my first ever dog and is now a little over 2 1/2 years old. Samm is my black lab, who is a rescue and is about the same age. I dread the day when they get to the age you speak of because they are my kids. I belong to a lab forum where this discussion frequently comes up and it seems that our dogs will let us know when it is time for us to go. I suppose you get to know what your dog is feeling and that you can tell by their body language and the look in their eye. Many people agonize over it because they are afraid they may be reading their dog all wrong. That would be my fear. I'm a firm believer in euthenasia as a means to save an animal or human from unnecessary suffering and tend to be fairly pragmatic in that regard. I only hope when the time comes, I can put aside my desire to have them with me always and allow my kids to go without suffering when it is their time.

Hi Bob! I imagine I could do a lot of "burning" and "dodging" in Photoshop to really clean up the images and improve contrast. I'm getting used to a new DSLR and am having fun trying to see what I can do with it set to manual. I used to do a lot of film photography and even developed my own film, back in my university days. So now I'm re-learning all the stuff the years have tucked into a dark, unused corner of my brain. It's kind of fun and at times frustrating. I took these in farly low light, morning with all the drapes and blinds closed and no tripod, so it looks like the anti-shake thing really works! At normal size, I think it looks okay. It'sdeceptively dark when posted on this site. I suspect it's appearance will also depend on each viewers monitors settings. For example on my monitor, the retouched image that you did looks a little over-exposed, while my original post looks a little under-exposed. My brother is a graphic designer and tried to tell me how to calibrate a monitor once. Well, let's just say my eyes glazed over and I started daydreaming about polishing my Airstream!

Yes, we posted a good exposure of us on the "Let's see you" thread. It was terribly dark after posting, so I lightened it up excessively (as could maybe be said about my modifications above) and quickly edited to substitute a new attachment. BTW -- members only get a few minutes to revise and edit. If you run out of time a mod can always insert for you.

Always glad to see your pups!

Well, if I run out of time editing a photo, I can always take a bunch and repost!

Thumbs up Lovely photos! So expressive!

Hey Cameron and Richard,
Thanks for sharing those photos, their eyes are so expressive in those photos!
Aren't we lucky to have dogs in our lives?

We certainly are!

Richard, I love the license plate! I wish we had options like that up here.

The best part is: The extra fee helps pay for spay and neutering stray animals. It's a good thing.
