What a lovely Westie. A nice pose, intelligent expression, works well.


The image seems just a little oversaturated, - and the hair is not quite white. This ,ight only be due to evening light, - cant tell, but I have altered tone and saturation just a little in the mod.

I would love to see the eyes with some more detail, and theres lots there if you brighten them a little.

Last suggestion, - the image would look better rotated a little clockwise, so the fence is straight on the left.

Good shot overall, - good high ISO performance from the camera.

Ive included all my suggestions in the mod, - scroll up to the modifications tab. Hope you like it, and this is helpful,


regards


Willie

Beautiful dog and beautiful pose, captured just at the right moment which isnt easy with animals. Lovely.

Looks like a common problem with the white balance. If I am not mistaken, this is why the colours are off! White balance is on auto at a time of changing light and the camera cannot respond correctly. Once fixed, we have quite a lovely shot. Paul

Important things first... lovely dog!

Yes, the white balance looks out - although I may have gone to far the other way (see mod). I thought the fence intrusive so I cropped some of it out of the frame. I also cloned out that fence clamp which was quite eye-catching. I think a different background may have improved the shot, but nothing 'busy'.

Lovely dog.Grin

Nice doggy shot. I rather like the warm result. It is a bit out, but rather better warm than cool. Ideally, to lift such images above the standard, get down to the animals level, or lower, and look for neutral backgrounds, bushes, sky, something less distinct.
