Something different from down under. This is my friend's pedigree Italian Greyhound. This was the only shot I got of her in focus, she's as nervous and flighty as a small bird.

Love this shot. I like the color one better then the b&w. I find the color gives it more emotion.
Wow, that focus is unreal Miles, beautiful image.
I like the b&w better, it leads the eye directly to your subject. That's my opinion.
Great shot Miles, our two are difficult to capture as well, they're not skittish as such, just don't have much concentration!
I love the colour version, the dog has a lovely colouring.
Wow! Gorgeous dog, the razor thin DoF really drags your eye back to where it should be. The colour one works best for me too.
I think the color and B&W versions are equally beautiful. Love the narrow depth of field.
This is beautiful. I like the colour version as well... the earth tones are too perfect to discard.
Hmm, I like both version. The DOF is terrific here.
i'm gonna go with the b/w on this one.
A friend of mine had an Italian Greyhound named Alfa many years ago - definitely a breed in full-motion most of the time! The focal separation here between her face and the remainder of the frame is just superb considering the circumstances - I like the b/w as well, but it seems that the separation is much more pronounced in the color version seen here.
hi miles! i don't know if you had a look at all my seychelles shots..there are many photos at the at the beginning
(don't have an archive yet, sorry)...
Really appreciate your comment :D
i'm totally impressed by your wideangle landscape shots with those crazy blue skies :)
-> i'll have to visit your site more often...
hard to pick between the two. i think i like the colour, but i do love how the b&w looks very much like a photo from the early 1900s.
No freakin' way! That's unbelievable bokeh. What were you at with your 50mm - 1.4 or 1.8? I have never been able to get bokeh like that. And the colors are gorgeous. WOW!
i've been in a colour mood lately... i dig it.
your dof (or lack thereof) is consistently kick ass.
as always, thanks for sharing!
Thanks everyone, I really love what the 50mm f1.4 can do with out of focus areas. This was shot at 1/200s and f1.6.
Beautiful shot... such lovely big eyes on the dog :)
wow, great shot , amazing eyes has that dog
i go for the color version, the tones in the background at a lot to the image. Dof is great !
someone give that dog a donut! he's starving! amazing shot ...
Both images are fantastic, and the b&w version is very appealing, but the color version is more enjoyable.
they're both stunning
great DOF. like the B&W better.
This is freaking amazing.
Nice! I like the colour version.
Oh man I love this Miles, just pops out at you like crazy. Just great!
I like this. Prefer the color version.
wow, the way of dof works so well.
and i prefer the coloured version because the grey and brown tones working together very well.
a very beautiful dog!
Both versions are superb, although for lasting effect, the B&W has an edge.
photographing pets can be very challenging. i like the way the eyes are captured here. both versions are beautiful. as for me i prefer the b&w version. in b&w the eyes are communicating differently and also the leafs on the ground become less distracting.
Scary, but splendid!
Wow! Excellent processing! Striking image.
Seems like an old image from the toning. Well done, especially with keeping the DOF large enough to cover his face, but ending it at his ears.
Her head almost seem seperate from the rest of the image. Quite an incredible effect really.
This is a beautiful shot, the focus is perfect. I like both versions very much.
You really captured this little dog's emotion - it looks like she's ready to sprint off at any second. I prefer the color version to the B&W, because the colors are muted enough that they don't steal attention from the greyhound's remarkable shape.
Me likes the B&W better. How many did you have to take to get one in focus?
Really great shot, what lens/aperture you shoot this with?
Wow, great shot! The out-of-focus areas are wonderful, too.
I love the dof in this shot - and if you put a gun to my head I think I'd go for the B&W version, although it does seem to make the big leaf under the dog attract more attention than in the colour version.
very good, the focus is snap on
hi there. I think the b/w version does not work for me: it reveals to much detail in the background and looses on the other hand to much of it on the dog itself. Peter described it very well: the big leaf under the dog attracts attention. But maybe it's also just how you made the b/w version in terms of color channel mixing. But the color version is fantastic, especially the DOF and light.
you chose the right one. the color one is the best no questions asked :)
The selective focus abstracts the image well enough; I don't think a further abstraction of B&W adds anything. In fact, it drains some of the impact.
Amazing shot. This random feature on your blog is just awesome.
