I love the composition, with the path underneath your dog. Exposure was handled very well. Dog a bit OOF, but it is not an easy shot.

Nice and shoot at the right time .
No snow there ? we have tons
greetings to you and Nancy from Montreal
Sorry Jan, for me focus on the dog is rather good... Nice pan-along action, Don. The bricks immediately under the dog are OOF because of the motion blur. Could have been more so if you hadn't used the sports programme, but speed priority on 1/125 or slower... but then you'd have less "margin" for panning with a wrong speed. Just exercise and play with it, you'll see it will go fine. It will definitely be easier if you give Magpie some space, so take him out in a field instead of the back yard ;o)).
Compo-wise there is room for some improvements, imo. The top left corner, for instance: remove the borderstones by cloning with grass... I'm also not too fond of the border on the right hand side as now it sort of looks like the dog will bump his head. Last, you're right about the space on the right, it is needed. And you could have zoomed out another 10mm...
Hey, just my 2 cents ;o)

Excellent action shot with wonderful motion.
I know the real story ,but it looks like Magpie has rescued the duck from the walkway from some oncoming threat.LOL.
Well done,the POV is excellent.
All the best for 2008

Upon opening this image I was about to inform you this is not a magpie it is a duck... but then, OK!
Funny action has been captured, well framed...
But I still wonder why so many dogs love to carry things..!

I like the action shot of this dog, especially with the toy in its mouth. Compostion could be better (less centralised?) but I do like the idea of the dog jumping over the brick path like this. Good panning technique to keep the dog in focus
Thanks for sharing
