Yesterday was the first of a two day of Sheep Dog trial at Week Farm near Brentor,inevitably after weeks of dry weather the mist and rain rolled in off nearby Dartmoor,however this young lady was undetered,what`s a drop of rain when your young?
Hopefully today will be dryer...

excellent double portrait here. Like the use of shallow depth of field here. Like the sharp subjects with nicely blurred background. A nice composition indeed with superb exposer. Tfs.

These picture is real a gold picture, with a love between girl and dog
Colours and sharpness are perfect.

Very well done, TFS.

A delightful double portrait of mistress and trusty sheep dog. Good control over depth of field and the evident mist help lift the subjects form their surroundings. She has a winning smile and will no doubt break a few hearts in the years to come.

Ces chiens sont d'une intelligence hors du commun. C'est comme si ils Útaient nÚs chiens de bergers. Ici, le jeune homme semble bien fier de son ami Ó quatre pattes.

a delightful shot this and captured so beautifully. Despite the weather it strangely adds to the impact of this wonderful image. I love it, full of happiness and so English.
Enjoy a peaceful Sunday - Brian.

That is the cutest thing, oh my word! Even with the mist your exposure and colors are wonderful. Both subjects well placed in the frame, marvelous sharpness and detail and that is the sweetest little face. She looks so happy and excited. That is just awesome, Leslie! Many thanks and kindest wishes,

I think only the british can get exited about sheep dog trials, to me it seems really excentric.
This is a lovely portrait of the young girl and her dog with a pleasant mist in the background. I hope they where successful at the trials.
have a good week

a wonderful portrait of the two friends. A simple, direct and effective approach that has captured the vividness of the moment, the girl's spontaneous gesture and friendly, happy smile. I also love the harmonious colours, the depth and the sharpness on the two subjects against the misty background which you have rendered very well too. So lovely the dynamic effect of various diagonals distributed all over the composition. A very delightful picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

This duo is absolutely adorable. The cheeky looking little girl appears to have a close bond with the dog. The stick makes the composition even more interesting and relevant to the event. Beautifully rendered against a misty BG.
KInd Regards, Ann

The look on this young woman's face is priceless. I presume her gear is classic, the dog is fabulous, and the misty background is perfect. Sometimes it's hard to find much to say when a portrait is so perfectly-executed! Well done, sir!

The mist gave a very special atmosphere and she looks so happy and proud holding the dog and stick. I like the smiling face and the portrait is really good!
