What's that?

A little 'rescue' greyhound I met on my travels. She was intent on something on the ground, and this 'pose' seemed to capture some of her character.

Very focused and well captured! Are you sure this is a greyhound? It doesn't look like the ones around here, but I imagine there are many differnt kinds.
EJWilkins: Yes, that's what the owners told me. They had got her from a 'Rescue', an ex-racing dog. She was lovely. smile
Very nice photo that certainly does capture a curious character.
EJWilkins: Thanks Mary, she was a lovely little dog
Very unique. Shows the concentration so well.
EJWilkins: That's what I thought. I took some pictures of her 'face on' but didn't seem to get the feel of the character, she was more interested in looking at me and was more relaxed, her ears in the wrong place
Brilliant capture. She certainly seemed deep in thought. I've never encountered a dog in a contemplative mood before. Even though we don't see a frontal view, the mood is still adequately captured.
EJWilkins: Thanks, I'm glad you think the same as I did smile
√Čl Est√° pensando!! Has capturado un buen momento... seguramente, el perro estar√≠a atento a algo que pasar√° por sus patas !! smile

He is thinking! You have captured a good moment... surely, the dog would be kind to which it will happen through its legs! smile
EJWilkins: Gracias Jose smile
Nice one. I liked the framing here which highlights the mood
EJWilkins: Thanks, it was a bit of an experiment really, we always seem to see dogs from the front.
Meadow would really like to meet this greyhound, Ellie! She saw the picture and told me so wink Meadow is a miniature greyhound, and she recognizes full-sized greyhounds as one of her family. Lovely shot.
EJWilkins: Aww, thanks for that Kay smile
A very unusual angle that works, well done.
EJWilkins: Thanks Dorun, yes it is an unusual angle, I'm glad you think it works
Nicely composed and well comented Ellie !
EJWilkins: Merci beaucoup Roland smile

Nicely captured, Ellie. The intensisty of the stare is palpable.
EJWilkins: You 'Got it' Jimbo, thanks smile
Lovely capture Ellie.

Love the angle. The dog's concentration is evident. The snout looks a little blunt for a greyhound.
nice capture...

What I most love about this, Ellie, is how much the ears are saying! That's one of the most soulful things about dogs for me.

I have a big smile on my face because my pic tomorrow is for you. Just remember this one of yours today. smile
EJWilkins: Tomorrow is now today, so I'll go and look wink

It was the ears that 'got me' about this picture too, the ones I'd taken face on didn't have the same sort of expression.
Aww what a great shot Ellie! You can just feel how intent he is on the "something" in front of him. I was hoping Kay saw this one! :o)
Ready to pounce smile
I like this composition and the great DOF - the title is really good too smile
EJWilkins: Thanks Aksel smile
That's so cute. Our fella does the same. I caught him slowly following a spider around our decking one day, it really can be funny.
Lol smile This is a really funny shot : Bravo !!

Good woofer. Looks quite absorbed.
