Karen's Challenge

On Monday, Karen set me a challenge:
I like the through the ear perspective. Here's a little challenge for you:) Take one with the landscape in focus and the ears out of focus, and see which one you like best:)
I was more than happy to accept - and here's the result:

It's just a shame that the weather wasn't as good (we haven't had as good a day since). I still prefer the first one because of the brighter colours.

The photo above was just a good luck shot. I wasn't planning on getting it, but Pip just looked at the right place at the right time.

Her ears can go in all directions.



  1. Beautiful ears!!! I love the second picture!

  2. Hey Everyone!
    Wow, I like both, but I kinda like the first one where the scenery is so pretty. Great pix!
    Love your territory.

  3. I love those pictures! They are both good.

  4. Both pics are really good, but we agree with you an dlike the first better.

    Thunder can do weird things with his ears too. He can turn one sideways and keep the other one straight - it is so funny to see.

    Have a good weekend.

  5. Came over from the Blog Hop...You have VERY talented ears! BOTH photos are very good. We like the geometry of the second however! The challenge itself is a cool idea, I am going to ask dad to experiment a bit.

  6. We like them both, too! But we agree with you, the first one is more colorful. We just like ears :-)

  7. Hey Ruth, good for you for giving it a go!
    I'm thinking maybe if Pip was a bit farther away so her ears wouldn't be quite as much out of focus, with the scenery still in focus, but then Pip would have to cooperate, and that's easier said than done with dogs:)
    Just keep playing around with your camera, and maybe one day the weather and Pip will cooperate on the same day:)

  8. Wowserz! Pips ears look a lot like me in that last photo, except I have a bit more crazy fur. ;)

    I like the pic where the background is in focus. :)

    Woofs & hugs,


  9. What fun! I like the ears in focus better, perhaps because that means the focus is on Pip. :) Very nice.

  10. I like them both but chose the first one.
    I love Pip's crazy ears!
