    The expression you have captured in the dog's eyes is awesome. Very nice portrait Mike !!
     
  5. Mike...
    that is an AWESOME shot
     
  6. Nice shot. That is my breed also, in addition to the corgis. Did you make a nice print for the owner? I am sure they would love to have such a beautiful portrait.
     
  7. Nice shot, love shepherds. Can I make a little suggestion? Color wise.:rolleyes:
    (still new here so learning the ropes)

    Very nice portrait! The one thing I will suggest is that you pay close attention to background distractions. There is a metal bar in the back of the photos near the windows - that while blurred - are distracting. Very beautiful guy none the less!

  9. Hopefully I won't offend here. Since this is a forum and open to comments, my only intention is to show that we don't have to be satisfied with what comes out of the camera. Sometimes the images need a little tweaking to show more what we saw. Given a little time I could get rid of the door bar and so on but I just tweaked the color and highlights to bring out a little more detail and hopefully make the image appear more natural from a color standpoint. I do this all day so when I see a great shot that just needs a little help, I can't help myself. I'm always looking to improve myself so hopefully this will be taken in the same light. :smile:
