sunday stills - go high, go low

This week's Sunday Stills challenge is focused on the perspective of the shooter...finding shots from high and low angles, up and down, off center, etc. I chose my two favorite subjects and ended up with four favorite photos: two up and two down. I couldn't pick just one out of the four. Would love to hear which one you like the best, think works the best...

Great shots!
Of course, I'm partial to the shot of Sophie in the snow.

Carolina said...

Hmmm, looking up at Sophie I guess is my favourite. Like them all though.

Hello! You have some great shots! Animals are my fav subject, even if they won't hold still! lol I like your one of Sophie looking up at you, you can see the adoration in her eyes. Really good.

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

It's a hard call but we like the first one best, because her eyes are so lovely in it!

Mildred said...

I love the last two. I love how Elora's lashes and whiskers show up and I love the closeup of Sophie.

The Wife said...

Nice job! I like the first one best I think.

Hilary said...

The first shot was the big Awww-evoker for me. That cat has wonderful eyes.

Your photos are always PERFECT!

Ed said...

Whahoooo indeed, great shots.

Joanne said...

Definitely the first one. It really shows the feline inquisitiveness, maybe a little mischief too. She's so pretty!

I love the one of Elora looking up. Her eyes are amazing. Sophie is very cute too (I don't want her to get jealous).

Great approach...using the animals. Those faces...such character :)

Kathleen said...

Beautiful babies! All of the pics are greaty, but my favorite is the first. Elora's eyes are amazing!

Rising Rainbow said...

I think my favorite are the top one and the bottom one. I love the green of the cats eyes and the angle on the bottom one.

Mason Dixie said...

All great, I do like the looking down pics by far. =)

Tracey said...

The BC shots are wonderful! My dog gets nervous when I aim the camera towards his face so I'm always impressed when people can get open eyed shots of their dogs like that.

I love the first one, such a striking color combination between her fur and her eyes!

Looking down at sophie does it for me!!

The Scribbler said...

I think looking up is the hardest shot to make, not just because of angle but because of lighting - pictures tend to wash out when you do that - your's did not. So, that's my favourite because you got the difficult one down. Besides Sophie looks pensive in it and, for a dog, well that's just adorable!

Janie said...

They are all good shots... like you hard to choose. TY for sharing. Janie
