Cleo sat in the footwell of the car.
The picture was mostly dark and i wanted to make it more so and this is my first photo that i have tried to play, i am just learning PS and so i altered the levels and cloned a part of it as her lead was showing, i wasnt brave enough to go any closer to hide the one side of her body that is showing as i didnt want to lose her whiskers.......

Hi Helen, thanks for your comment on my dog paw pic. I went to have a look at your portfolio and this is my favourite! Really lovely....I'm glad you preserved the whiskers as they look fantastic. I like Staffies too.

hello & welcome nice to see your work, this is really lovely, you can use the burn brush on a real low level to burn in the BG a little at a time, a good technique to master for unwanted bits & pieces on your work .. the heal brush is also very useful tool, also when you downsize your image it looses sharpness just use sharpen edges to bring it back, you can always lessen it once you have used this ..., if you ever want any help I will if I can, this site has taught me so much ...

I really love this one, square crop suits it perfectly and you've done a great job of darkening the background. Just needs some slight sharpening to really make it pop... beautiful work, and a very happy looking Cleo!
