I spotted this dog obediently guarding his owners bicyle and could not resist taking this shot. Hope you like this one.

I did not have my tripod so lent against a bench to take photo.

This shot has just been cropped, colours adjusted slightly, resized and sharpened before uploading.

i'm suggesting here 2 crops, to position the dog higher in the frame, to draw more attention to the dog..and exclude the presence of the bike wheel a bit more...))) the top part doesn't really add any other clue to this picture.

Hi Mike, just cropped it. To me it puts stronger focus on the dog. What do you think?
