The Monthly Challenge for Aug 2017: Our Best Friend
 
Our Best Friend.

Friends come in all shapes and sizes and are not limited to human subjects. While the challenge is supposed to provide inspiration to take new images, as there is no contest or voting, any image that fits the theme is suitable for posting.

As challenges are for learning its open to all skill levels and you can put in as many images as you wish, but please limit to no more than 2 images per reply to allow for others to critique your work. Adding in shot information is always helpful for new and inexperienced members so it would help to include ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture and whether or not flash/external lighting was used.

I hope to see several entries

This challenge will run until 8/25 when a new challenge will be posted

One of my best friends is my dog Apollo. We have had him since he was 12 weeks old and now he is nearing 12. He a retired flyball dog (a relay race for dog teams) but still is a very active pup enjoying long walks at the beach and in the mountains.

I love it Clark!
As soon as I saw it I just smiled! I really like the shallow depth of field and the blue, it makes a great contrast for his fur.

This project couldn't come on a better time. My best friend Becky is getting married in a few weeks time and as a present i have put together a collection of photos of our time together. At the time we were both living in Quebec, after she moved back to the UK and I moved to Japan.
Here one of my favorite of her. Processed in Aperture.

I like the bounced flash here as it looks very natural like sun coming in through the window. Willy looks like a fine friend to be strolling around with too.

Having 2 dogs means having 2 best friends, though I rarely have them on an outing together. This is Khan, who has been through quite a lot of drama over the past year.

He has some serious health issues causing arthritic like attacks on his joints. We took him in for treatment and that led to blood clots, one of which settled in his male organ which became necrotic and died and had to be surgically remove. He now pees through a hole.

He is quite literally a transgendered dog. He has recovered well from all the events, but is on immune suppressants so he can no longer compete in dog sports or even go to dog parks. He is still very bouncy loves to get out, and loves to eat...he really love to eat.
