This is an excellent example to use as an introduction to the Phellos critique club Elaine. It's a wonderful POV and composed perfectly.

This is where PhotoShop Elements would come in handy to open the shadows a bit to reveal more texture in the fur and add a bit of brilliance to the eyes.

Well done. #1471394

Thank you again for the pointers! I took a class last year about photographing your dog. I needed help since she is black and VERY difficult to photograph, especially getting her and my daughter (very fair) in the same pic. #10201332

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
