I think the title describes it well enough :) Kiah does love water!

Well done! In addition to obviously enjoying the water, Kiah is also obviously a beautiful-looking dog... I especially like his/her undulating reflection in the water.

Hi, Lisa....

By keeping the horizon in the upper third up the shot, you've kept the simply blue sky to a minimum. + 1.

All of the action is centered in the lower two thirds. +1 +2 total

You've kept the action on the right side and have the left side clear which helps the movement. +1 +3 total

Great reflection. Interesting action. No noise. Wonderful detail. Excellent colors. +5 +8 total.

Bonus points for the smile on your dog's face.

Breathtaking image Lisa, colors and composition are for me deserving a masterpiece. You know how to take the emotion of Kiah. She loves the moment and yes we can see a smile on her face.

Great image for a great moment

It looks like it dancing across the water Lisa.
Great action shot and reflection.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

Hello Lisa....This is very lovely clear and crisp picture showing your dog at play... By letting your Kiah show you what she can do, in turn, Kiah has given you an unpredictable photo that shows her personality.....Well done....All the very best to you Lisa.....Mick.

Some people have Gurus, I have my camera. Through the cam lenses I have learnt to deeply perceive life, not only to see, but to look at all expressions of nature, becoming able to read the poetry of the flowers, receiving the embrace of the trees and flying above the clouds without wings! - Susie Sun

The stillness of the water, the near absence of a landform, the clarity of focus, the light in her face, and the low angle of the photo all conspire to make it a great pet shot, heads above the normal ones we get here.
