iPhone Action Shot

iPhone Action Shot

I was standing by the duck pond in Denny Blaine Lake Park when a guy walking six dogs passed me, then doubled back and passed me several times more. He was encouraging the dogs to follow his directions and not let their temptation to chase the ducks override what they were doing. This photo turned out a little strange, as the iPhone doesn't capture movement like some other cameras will (thus the chocolate pooch in front has a crackled face and some bodies and tales are a blur. But, I liked the effect and the way it showed this Dogs Around the Block trainer and six dogs having a grand time.

Oh yes, love this! You've really caught the chaos of a pile of dogs walking together. Not easy for the handler I'm sure. Love the action.

the "effect" is because opf the motion and the camera attempting an hdr, you do know that right? if you woudl have chosen the non-hdr version the "effect" would not have been there

Great action shot! Nice change from the stagnant photos. I rather like the blurriness, it's like these dogs are in super-speed mode (Superman reference). :P

Takes a lot of skill to be the head of this pack. The blurry movement in the photo gives it dynamism.
