A Shaggy Dog Story!

By TrevBatWCC    
Another image reworked and faffed around with using Spektrel Art. This was taken at a 1940s weekend in Haworth back in 2012. I came across this dog sat in an open-top vintage car and it kindly posed for me. The version is the original (also reworked) uncropped image, showing all the clutter in the background.
(image taken 19/05/2012)

Many thanks to Dave (HobbitDave), Isabel (Chinga) and Kate (Irishkate) for their User Awards on my previous upload, Bridge over the River Dearne , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Spektrel Art, Nik Collection's plugins and Photoshop Elements 2020.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😃👍

Trev 😀

An interesting effect Trev. Looks like he's been plugged into the mains.
Do like the original though

Now Phil's comment did make me laugh and I'm afraid I have to agree!!! Good bit of faffing though but I, too, prefer the original......such a lovely dog.

That’s a stunning image Trev. Your ‘faffing’ around really paid off.

I like it. It works very well with this particular dog as it is long haired anyway. A good bit of faffing Trev!

A beautiful dog Trev, I love them both great and interesting process in the lead image.

Re the Sunday Post, I have read the funnies,since I was a child. I get it by mail now it comes on Tuesday or sometime Wednesday , but it is still the same, Oor Wullie and the Broons, lots of tips and articals, I read it cover to cover, do the crosswords and then pass it on to my neighbour.

Excellent work Trev. Both images are superb.

When you view the original and flick back to the lead I think the lead is a great job Trev!
The lead, viewed large and seeing the original fur and texture of the nose and eyes is just so lovely.
Excellent faff 😀
Two good images Trev, version just wins for me. Smile

The original is a delightful shot although it does seem to lend itself to processing applied.
