Award Shortlist   


By KJackson of a team of three owned by a winning UK musher. Here he is waiting for his turn to run. I love his bored expression.

When these dogs are harnessed up they literally beam with happiness. Taken on a very dark & dreary day so high ISO used.

Some people may not like the messy foreground that I have decided to leave, so have uploaded mods for people to play.

Thanks for looking, all C&C learned from.

Thanks for the mod Cole, I like it. How did you brighten it without the face looking too white? -which is what happened when I tried

Karen, you just paint it back on the layer mask after the adjustment.
You can use shadow and highlight as well.

Best referred to as muddy knee’s on your jeans when doing this type of low down portrait photography of dogs and well worth the effort to get this one. Dogs have their own type of body language and this comes across extremely well in this portrait. This lovely dog was born with such correct white markings on his face they could have been painted. A pleasure to view. Well done.
