Such a beautiful picture. The dog is gorgeous and very intelligent looking, and the background being a similar colour really makes him belong to the scene. I love the grasses on the right, and love the snow. Nice cropped.

A lovely image and the colours are great the crop looks good too, with such a lovely image it might look good with a simple frame to give it a finished look.
