A Golden Retriever looks over its back. By shooting from a more straight-on position, the ultra-wide 8mm focal length does not distort the size of the dog's head as significantly as head-close positions.
I was trying to keep the background trees away from the dogs face in this shot. I should also note that 1/50 is a very long exposure setting for always-moving dogs. It worked this time as the dog was intently studying something.
