Happy New Year everyone

Apologies for not being around.. busy setting up my business and covering lots of shooting days

Here's Lola a youngster learning the ropes... I purposely composed the shot with the gun barrel

Thanks for looking and for all your support, always appreciated

This is a smashing shot! Normally I would have considered removing the barrel from the backroud but here I think it has a good relationship within the composition and gives a good reference to the nature of work the dog does.

Beautifully detailed portrait Jon - wonderful expression and super coat textures. Like Andy, my initial reaction was to remove the gun barrel , but in retrospect I agree with his comment.
Hope the new venture is a brilliant success - I am sure it will be Smile

I agree, the portrait of the dog would work equally as well without the gun

An excellent shot and really has the wow factor for me. The detail captured here is incredible, I love the splashes of mud on the dogs fur and the muddy collar, and I think the barrel is a clever addition as it completes the story.
