Last one for the evening...
When I processed this DP2 photo in SSP 3.5, it looked all right, in terms of showing just another photo the camera could take. And then I popped it up to full-size and the dog entered an entirely new dimension. I must say that I almost hate to see DP2 shots in less that full resolution, because once you've seen the entire photo, you realize you're missing a lot of their impact in smaller sizes.
So here's a snapshot, literally, of one of our village dogs. I leave him pretty much alone when we meet, so he's not unfriendly, but when I get close, he usually hoists himself up in case he needs to move. I raised the camera, took this single one-handed shot, and walked away to leave him in peace.
If you want to see him come alive, click on the image for the full-size photo, very lightly sharpened. (If there's one thing I've found with DP2 images, it's that they need very little sharpening.) The photo could use a little cropping and straightening, and it's nothing in terms of art, but I've left it as it was shot so you can have a look at what the camera does.
Sigma DP2, P mode (accidentally), ISO100, 1/80s, f/3.5. RAW processed in SSP 3.5.
