Photographer Notes:
Six beautiful Golden Retrievers, belonging to our friends Mike & Margaret McAra. Though these dogs are exceptionally well-trained, it took 14 takes to get this one of them all looking in my direction!

This shot is a winner if for no other reason that to achieve the difficult task of getting that many dogs to sit still long enough to get the shot. You did a fantastic job. Congrats on a well deserved POTD.

Quick note - let's hope it posts! The big guy in the centre is our Harvey's sire; golden oldie next to him is Harvey's grandmother; and the paler boy on the end (right) is our Harvey's grandfather!

Regarding the helpers ... only Mike and Margaret, owners of these GRs were standing behind me, trying to get them to focus on me all at the same time. Too many distractions in the park, and this group shot was at the end of a long photo shoot. They did exceptionally well!
Linn Smith commented on June 07, 2008 12:33:
Your hard work was definitely worth the added effort...an awesome capture with terrific clarity and color. Their gorgeous coats are brilliantly shown...congratulations on an outstanding POTD!

Six dogs, all looking in one direction, all with happy faces, in an exquisite setting -- Linn -- you are a MAGICIAN!

This is magnificent. Your hard work paid off! Besides all looking your way, their tongues are all hanging out, too! Very cute! Congratulations, Linn!
