Day 23 POTD: Feed Me!


So close, yet so far! I would love to be able to get my little subject to continue to sit for another photo, so I could deal with the blow out in the upper right. I used the custom white balance, but set this for a section of the floor that DIDN'T include Bonnie's favorite sun spot. But I'm very excited about learning to use Custom White Balance, thanks to Debbie yesterday who posted her wonderful "Dance" photo and talked about this.

Settings were ISO 200; Manual; using my 35 mm 2.0 lens, 1 milkbone dog treat; f/5.6; exp. 1/125. I adjusted curves, sharpened, and applied a vignette to see if I could diminish the over-exposure a little bit. CC most welcome!
