[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Couldn't resist posting this, my best friend Charlie and I were outside 'shooting the breeze' together and he suddenly looked up at me, so I snapped him. A true face of love. Nothing much done to this shot other than a weeny bit of cropping, clone brushing, and some added warmth.

Great shot Maggie, of what is obviously a very loving little dog. His expression is so very trusting. I have an idea for a w/s - see what you think. Otherwise, I would crop this to get more balance, and the image could be a little sharper. Well done on adding the warmth.

Sweet glance! The dog is a precious animal. Beautiful recording Maggie. One feels an affinity between the animal and the photographer. A lot of emotion through this photo.
Very well.
Doux regard ! le chien est un animal précieux. Belle prise de vue Maggie. On sent une affinité entre l'animal et le photographe. Beaucoup d'émotion à travers cette photo.
Très bien.

Hi Maggie, this is a beautiful and loving shot, dogs are definetly mans best friend, and judging by Charlie's expression he dotes on you. This is a great shot and really indicates how much he enjoys you - and having his photo taken. :-)
Well done.

Even if this is not technically perfect, your portrait of Charly conveys very warm feelings and illustrates the importance dogs have in the life of many people. I like your choice of a very close framing and the overall atmosphere of this shot. Certainly a love story, Maggie.
