    This is a great shot! And perfect for B & W! And you were able to retain all the detail in the white coat!!! Can I ask how you got the dog to sit so nicely way up there... mine's a BIG chicken.

I love this portrait of your dog, James. Great expression. I have two male hound dogs and I know they would never pose under studio lighting for me. She looks like a great dog. Really nice work. Definitely one for the wall.
