I'll stop staring when you give me a doggy treat

By peterkin
Rainy day so trying out a high key shot of Tyke but couldn't get the lighting right or the camera settings (as usual). I converted the original to B&W and did a bit of jiggery pokery in Paint Shop Pro, so I have to confess it's really a failed technique resulting in a failed image that's been manipulated. Oh, well - it's another day tomorrow.

This is a lovely image of Tyke, so don't beat yourself up about it. He's in focus for a start and you have the catchlight in his eyes for a second. Thirdly, you have a lovely diagonal from his front paws to his bottom - leading towards the top RH corner. Finally, the close crop means you have filled the frame beautifully.....and you call this a failure? Thank you for sharing. Sue
