Dont know if am doing something wrong with resizing recently, but my pictures seem to be highly pixelated when viewing on the site. They seem to look ok on my computer though when viewing in psp. Can somebody tell me if they look ok on their computer.
Anyway, say hello to my new foond friend. Yet another stray that has been visiting our house in Crete. I put under the category of photo journalism because it gives an idea of the culture abroad. These dogs are left to roam around the streets when their owners dont want them any more. How anbody could turf out such a loving dog I dont know. When I found her she was in an awful state. Coat all matted and covered in mud. Plus starving hungry. Now after a quick shower, belly full of food and a quick trip to the vet for a once over, its like she has always lived here. Took to me like a duck to water.
Hope you like the shot and thanks for looking.

not sure about the b/g on this one but a good shot of the dog, sounds like she has fallen into a good loving home

Background looks odd in this one. Have you cloned out anything?
Dog's eyes could do with a bit of light to make them stand out a little more.

No never cloned anything out. Background is a green wall that had strong sunlight on it. Agree about the eyes but had varying light. Difficult to expose throughout the pic. Did the best I could with the time given. Thanks for comment though. All taken on board. Smile

What a little darling, Paul, very well captured. I hate the way the greeks turf out their unwanted 'pets', so glad this one has found a loving home with you. Carol

Have done a mod for you Paul, just into PS5 and used lasso tool on the eyes, then feathered only 5% then used curves to lighten the eyes to bring them out more, after this I used smart sharpen as not as severe I don't think as the usual sharp tool.
Do hope that you like my try at this otherwise beautiful portrait shot
and she is a lucky girl to have found you!..perhapes they have whispered the message round..pet lover!

A lovely lassie you have here Paul, she has such a kind look in her eyes.
The pic looks good and clean for me, but I'm not the prof.
