It's not just children that are spoiled :-)

I converted this to B&W for the lights/shadows that were coming thru the window. No flash

Happy St Patricks Day !! Enjoy

Excellent choice of B&W - great light, very sharp in a soft kind of way (if you know what I mean!)

Really good animal portrait Julie!

Hi Julie,

Good choice to convert to B&W, it suits the protrait well. Very sharp, and even though we can't see them, it looks like there's good eye contact here. Happy St. Patricks Day to you also!

Warm regards,

Oh my Julie! This is amazing! I love all the textures in his fur! And the soft focus is so nice! Oh this is one of your best!

A lovely capture from a cute dog, giving a perfect pose to you ;) You are right in your note - he knows how to smile and how to behave especially when it comes to portraits :))

A nice composition to amuse oneself!

Hi Julie,

Very cute, comfy dog. Good capture. The B&W seems natural. The dog looks to be awake, although It's hard to tell. How did you get him to pose so well for 1/10 sec? Quite incredible curls. He looks like he's settled in for the night. 'Tis a "feel good" shot, to be sure. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too. TFS.
