I was worried the dogs were going to shy away from my telephoto lens, but this one couldn't get enough! Very photogenic lad, unfortunately I overexposed his dark fur.

Very difficult to decide a) whether to keep the softness of the tones or boost contrast more (I went for halfway) and b) how to separate out the background from fur. I went for a roughly 20% red, 80% green channel mixer monochrome conversion, but burnt the fur a bit round the edges to improve contrast.
