A delicious lowlight photograph Andy. On which has clearly been very well observed from a low point of view, composed and captured. Your wise choice of the rather small aperture working wonderfully in retaining both stunning colour and detail in depth.

As for your canine portrait, he looks like a rather War torn character with heaps of charm....

Looks as if the occupants have raised the ladder in order to inhibit being invaded, Andy. Imposing low-light capture.
Good to hear the positive news concerning the not-so-shy model in v2!
