... That's why her name is Belle! :biggrin: Like others before, I feel this is more a portrait than an animal picture, although it could probably go in retouching too. This was a quick snap, in natural light, while she was stitting on the stairs, with the D2H and 35mm f/2, taken at 1/40s f/4 in manual and auto-ISO (turned out to be ISO 900!). Raw, converted in PS/CS ACR, added a bit of vignetting, dodge and burn with the PWL action, and a mild Feivel glow (copy/paste a regular glow action and turn the opacity down). Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) Is this any good? What would you have done differently? Thanks in advance for your comments/critiques. I redid the processing as the vignetting was a little too visible, the image was a bit dark and without much definition in the shadows, I cropped a bit to get some features on the 1/3rd lines, and I also added some more sharpness to the eyes.
