This is a smashing shot! Normally I would have considered removing the barrel from the backroud but here I think it has a good relationship within the composition and gives a good reference to the nature of work the dog does.

A superb composition, Jon, love the inclusion of the barrel of the gun, very well thought out and captured. Good luck with the new business. Carol
Absolutely cracking shot especially good to include the barrel - gives a perspective on the shot. Lola looks a beauty! Louise

Beautifully detailed portrait Jon - wonderful expression and super coat textures. Like Andy, my initial reaction was to remove the gun barrel , but in retrospect I agree with his comment.
Hope the new venture is a brilliant success - I am sure it will be Smile

Perfect title. The dogs alert expression and the gun held to the side. All at the ready to their job. Love it.............Sandy

I agree, the portrait of the dog would work equally as well without the gun

An excellent shot and really has the wow factor for me. The detail captured here is incredible, I love the splashes of mud on the dogs fur and the muddy collar, and I think the barrel is a clever addition as it completes the story.
