Duck Retriever 2

I was trying out my new circular polarizer filter ,and my neighbour said I could take some photos of her beautiful retrievers.The lighting was very bright,and the snow on the ground was fresh providing a lot of challenges.This model is Brianna and she had retrieved a Yellow-Billed Plushy Duck.
Very little has been done to the photo

Cropped Slightly
RAW to Jpeg
Frame Added
Reduced for TL

Hi Rob, is that the Easter duckling Brianna has captured?
Your CP filter looks like it is working well - you should be pleased with it. Nice and sharp image and good on teh white snow too. TFS

The light wasn't the best, but the subject is cute and the picture quite good. I have the same problem with my duck retriever: no background that would give a nice contrast. Excellent focus and detail in the fur.

Hi Rob, pictures like this make me sick:-) just kidding. What I really want to say here is you certainly know how to operate that D70 very well. Exposure is right on. Detail is good as usuall. A fun loving picture. Thanks.


It's a lovely dog and a beautiful photo.

Hi Rob,
what a nice shot and the note is wonderful.
I love the colors on this shot a lot, the filter worked very nicely to tame the harsh light.

This is absolutely hilarious, and your notes make it even more extraordinary!
Fabulous PoV, composition, and framing
(back with :)

Lovely dog Rob, very good composition and nice lightning.Polarization helped in such strong light I guess.TFS

And after... Did you eat it really? I know it's rich in fibers... but it's vegetal fibers who are healthful!
For the photo its the mood we have from those dog by excellence you catch here!
The puppet full of snow complete well the pleasure of the view!

Hello Rob,
Funny idea and well executed!
Brianna surely find this as great fun as the real thing, and in particular if there is some water and swimming involved... Well, summer comes soon!
Well exposed, good details and a beautiful dog...
