04 Nov 2009 Creative Commons us note: Simon Thanks for using my "Dog running on the wet sand..." on your cool article!

It isn't essential, but if it is easy to link to the image and not just my home page that will let people know exactly where the source is.

We have many issues and discussions regarding dogs on the beach here in Morro Bay, CA so I find your article especially interesting! Thanks again!

03 May 2010. Solicited commentary: I said

"This was a opportunistic shot - one of eight keepers from a long afternoon stroll www.flickr.com/photos/mikebaird/sets/72157612463348020/ on Morro Strand State Beach, Morro Bay, CA, at a low tide during beginning afternoon low light, making for some interesting reflections of people, horses, children, and this dog. The camera used was the Canon Pro 1D Mark III which can shoot 10 frames-per-second. I tend to blast a ton of images when shooting movement to improve the odds of getting a keeper. The lens used was the flexible Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS, and I was shooting in Normal program exposure mode, single center-point focus, at ISO 400, so the camera computed f/7.1 and 1/1000, facilitating an okay depth-of-field and freezing motion in this case. I almost always use a circular polarizer on this setup when around water like this, which makes for a significant improvement in image quality. Getting low on my knees here helped a bit to get more "eye-level" for a more interesting image."

to query: Hi Mike. A while back, you kindly let me use one of your photos for this post on my website: www.learningthelight.com/2010/02/19/i-wish-id-taken-this-... I was wondering if you would like to write a small paragraph of two about the shot, how you took it etc - kind of like the 'story of the shot'. You can see an example of another's photographers thoughts on his photo at www.learningthelight.com/2010/03/19/i-wish-id-taken-this-... - I was wondering if you would like to do something like that? No problems at all if you're not interested, or don't have the time, just thought I would ask. Thanks for your time, Alan, www.learningthelight.com thelawflikr {at} yahoo d o t com
