Chali 2

By Dackj
This was the third in the series. I found her one dog bed in a sunroom. I was backed into a corner, shooting the dogs up against a window to their right. I was able to get a reflector in without them moving but as this one shows she was a little leery of it. Iíve tried to incorporate the advise given on the first two uploads of this series. Thanks again for your feedback!

Ticking all the boxes now...

My only suggestion - and it's only a suggestion - is to include a tiny bit of space above the head.

There's no waste of space at the bottom - the human eye tends to want to see the space that a face or limb would take up if there were no obstructions - in this case, the hidden lower jaw.

Beautiful portrait of your canine friend - it softens the heart of a non-doggy tog like me.

This is absolutely delightful beautifully taken and full of character.

My only quibble is the odd X-shaped reflection on that eye, which I find really distracting. I simply cloned a bit of the other eye over and tidied up a bit - I do think the result is more satisfying. No other changes.

Well done,

Lovely shot shame that the right eye has a glare on it. Could have been corrected.

Very nice.

The eye, and add a little space at the top as suggested, - or compose to allow a bit more, - perhaps use a portait orientation when taking the shot.

The mod has bot done

Well done

A smashing shot.
As a non expert I would suggest the dog looks at you, not to his/her right, which has caused a lot of white in the right eye.

A very attractive portrait, nicely lit with soft light and focused on the neares eye. All good so far, and even though a little more headroom is ideal it's not detrimental.

I know it's been mentioned several times but that catchlight was the first thing my eye went to, it's that distracting.

Fortunately the mods show it can be resolved, but the key thing is to remember to check everything carefully at the time of capture. It may be that you have to capture the moment but with the dog at rest you should both be relaxed giving you time to adjust your position juist that little bir as that's all it would need here.
