[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little friend was suposed to be guarding the house... didn't scare me at all.
It's not an amazing shot but I like his face a lot, especially his eyes.

On PP: this was shot in strong sunlight, backlit and badly exposed. Had to do a lot of work in Lightroom to make it look like this - Used radial filters to darken and soften the background, while lighting the dog; worked on the eyes a bit, color mixing and cropping of course.

Hope you like it.

Ha! Ha! to its expression, he appears to be in wonder of what he sees. His coloring is very natural & you have captured the textures of his coat very well, Lauro, nice PP work.

Hi Lauro, colours are quite natural for a shot that has been tweaked a lot. Love the bug-eyed look, looks more like you surprised him...Fiona

Cute looking dog, it looks like he is as curious about you as you are about him. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
