Just passing by :-)

Went to Diane's nephew's birthday party last Saturday and during a break, saw Charlotte sitting on the garden wall.
Just had to shoot it.

Sorry if I'm not too present on the site anymore. Working part-time on a new web site. Lot's of work to be done to get it going.

Resized and cropped.
Selected the ellipse selection tool and selected around Charlotte.
Inverted the selection to select the BG.
Changed the feather to 100.
Applied gaussian blur (+3) to blur the BG.
Signed and saved as jpg.

Hello to those of you that are just looking.
And HELLO and THANK YOU VERY MUCH to those of you that take the time to leave critiques/comments/workshops :-).
Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

Mes salutations

Hello Pierre....

long time.....

She is sooo cute end you made right decision to make shot of her...Great colorful shot:)

warm regards and big woof from Hogar to Charlotte

Hi Pierre,

Charlotte is "queen of the ball" I can tell. Just look at that pose! Seeing those sweet eyes, I could never tell this dog "no". Very nice shot with the green background. Blurry focus in foreground is nice too.

Give her a pat on the head and a puppy treat!


Bonjour Pierre,
Glad to see this post here on TL. Great clear shot of Charlote, Fine use of the filter. Wish you all the best with your new photo site.

Bonsoir Pierre,
Merci de nous faire ce petit clin d'œil avec Charlotte. Avec son air un petit gêné, elle semble dire qu'elle s'ennuie de Treklens un peu, non? En tous cas nous, on s'ennuie d'elle et de son photographe préféré!
Bravo pour l'utilisation du filtre. C'est du bon travail. Bonne chance dans tes projets! Annie

It is nice to see Charlotte again Pierre, even if she is just passing through. She is lovely and the presentation and Pp work are perfect. You have highlighted her sweetness perfectly. Bravo.

Warm Regards

Hello Pierre,
Great to have you back, even if briefly....
Charlotte is looking as charming as ever...and a lovely portrait.
Be well,

Hello Pierre! Good one of Charlotte, as usual she looks ready for a dog show! If Her & Magpie were together they would look like "The Lady & The Tramp" We about blew away from the leftover of Ike yesterday, so clean-up time today. Regards :} Don

Is she as cute an innocent as she looks Pierre or still a criminal? Nice work with the filtering, good colour and the catch lights in her eyes well captured. TFS,

PS do I get a link when the site is done?

The capture and composition here are superb, Pierre. So is the expression.
I am less certain of the blurring effects. I think I'd have cropped much closer to your subject instead

Hi Pierre

She is just absolutely adorable.. well she looks it here..like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Lovely effect to hold her sharp like this

TFS regards Helen

Hi Pierre,
Nice to "see" you around!
And nice to see Charlotte too with that cut submissive expression. A very lovely portrait!

Very nice pp work, and a beautiful pose :) Very sweet face and expression. TFS and have a happy day!

It's been a while, Pierre! Re your note: same here! Just passing through - can't resist 'Sweet Charlotte'! She seems to be saying: Now What?
Say hello to Diane
all the Best

Pierre, its been a while since I saw some of your pictures and I like this one of Charlotte, she is sharp,good color and POV.
Not so sure about the blur in the foreground, I found it a bit distracting, as it kept drawing my attention away from the main subject.

Salut Pierre,
Ta charlotte est magnifique, une vraie vedette. J'aime le contour flou de la photo.

Hello Pierre :)

I missed you there :o(((((

Hi Pierre,
Cute photo my friend.
I love this puppy's lovely expression.Well Done.
