    Yay! I love critiques! *LOVE* Thanks! :D

    OMG I struggled, struggled, struggled to get it to focus. I had originally set it to only take a shot if the shot was in focus. I had to change that, focus the camera and then insist it take the picture. It was so hard!

    I deliberately did not focus myself :) I feel that I am defined by dogs, not only mine, but also at work. I am sort of what my dogs show...if that makes sense.

    One thing that I despise about this photo - actually two - and I guarantee I'll point it out and then everyone will be staring at it LOL

    My Nook is closed, because the cover open is a little dirty and I didn't want to deal with the smudgies - but I can see the cover is NOT open. Also, the remote for my camera is in my hand, holding the Nook, I can see me pushing the button - ugh. haha

    I was wondering if it was intentional or not! Totally makes sense this way.

    Yeahhhh I don't know how to crop a photo. Not even joking LOL. But you are totally right - it would make it look better!

    Thanks for the compliment about getting the action shot! It took me FOREVER to get it, though! The lighting in my house is horrible, so I played with opening a window, closing another, opening a second, closing, etc. Kimma was tired of jumping the cello for sure hahaha.

    I am a total newbie at using my camera in manual. I took the dogs out today and attempted to get shots for both challenges and this was the first time I have ever used the manual settings. I admit, they don't make much sense to me but I gave it a try.

    ETA: I can't seem to get it to post from Flickr...so it's from Photobucket.

    So sorry it's super late, flickr finally let me back in last night.

    Like I said, not nearly as creative as the rest of the group, but I wanted something for the first week.

    This photo explains me in many ways. My favorite color is purple. I love Muck Boots (SO comfy!) and exploring places that allow me to wear them, like muddy hikes. I like bright colors (blue leash). And most of all, I *adore* the spark I see so often in Blaze's eyes. So full of happy and adventure.

    Hey, photo peeps, random question...



    I have a 75-300 mm Canon lens that I want to sell and I paid $240 for it brand new. I've only used it a few times and I still have the box. How much can/should I sell it for? I need the money pretty bad.

    I paid about $85 for my 80-200mm lens used. Amazon is selling non-USM 75-300mm Canon lenses for about $150. USM lenses are $165.
