Border Collie Gypsy is a flyball dog. And a very beautiful one I may say.
The original picture was of her running thru the flyball lanes. The look on her face was so priceless and full of pure joy. I had to think of something that would take away the surrounding jumps and background. I wanted her to be more of a focal point. This was my first attempt at anything artistic. Now I have all my friends wanting one.

Stunning!! I don't know what "flyball" means. Is she running the baseball bases and that is the chalk marker?

At first I thought it was a splash photo, but read the comments about it being flea powder โ€ฆ incredibly effective!

It\'s an overlay, not flea powder...๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚

Behind The Lens

Location
At a park during a flyball practice. Flyball is a dog sport.
Time
Between 9:00AM to 11:00AM
Lighting
We practice under shade trees with the sun filtering thru. It was a nice sunny day.
Equipment
Canon 5DSR with an EF 70-200MM 1:2.8 L IS II. No tripod just hand held.
Inspiration
My Aussie is on a fly ball team. I got into photography because of this sport and that is what I like to shoot...action shots that include a dog. If I'm not practicing with my Aussie then I'm practicing photography. When I edited the picture I just loved the look on her face, it was priceless. This is Gypsy a Border Collie owned by one of my friends.
Editing
This was my first artistic attempt. I had never cut an object out so I spend a few hours on line with YouTube. Gypsy's expression needed something subtle but just as crazy as her expression. I found an overlay at Lightroom/Photoshop Stock, and yes I had to learn this as well. It was fun but I still like on site action shots.
In my camera bag
Canon 5DSR with an EF 70-200MM 1:2.8 L IS II A short stool to sit on, a monopod, and my camera bag with the necessities.
Feedback
Shooting action isn't for everyone but the best advice is not to get a portrait camera to do action. Yes, I'm aware that my camera isn't recommended for action but I still love it. You will need to master your panning skills. It is hard but way to fun when you capture something that just makes you smile.
