Baxter on the Beach

By Georgias_Dad  
Just popped to Gt Yarmouth for a walk on the beach and took this pic of Baxter our Bulldog.

I thought I'd try some different angles of the old boy and I think it worked well.

Please tell me what you think.

I like this as a portrait - real character. I've had a go at a modification too - my first!

Looking again......maybe you could clone out the black speck in top left corner (dust/bird?)

Now this is very nice, I love the stance he has, well thought out, well done.

I like Neil's gritty version. I'd guess the speck in the top left is a gull. Living in the same area their more of a problem than dust on the sensor - seagulls on the sensor are a real blight!

Cheers guys

Steve/Brett yes that is a seagull I hadn't noticed it until you pointed it out.
Neil is it possible toi get a copy of your changes a GM loves it and want a hard copy.

This is a superb portrait taken at a great angle. That is one mean, ruffty-tuffty look he's giving there.

The gritty mod by neil0968 is very fitting too.

I like the fact that you got down to his level. That face just oozes character, and I like the angle of the shot. Well done!

If only he was Smile He's a big old softy and as he's getting old now I'll have to take more pic before it's to late:-(

What a great dog.
I like the low angle, but it would be better with a more interesting sky.

Bang in the centre was absolutely the right way to go for this one.. Masses of character! Like Neil's version, too.
