Black on Black

By dawnmichelle
Took some shots of Daisy yesterday evening and then thought I would black one of them out... which is pretty well all you see at night if the light hits just right.. or a red collar..
I posted V2 just so you could see her better for those who haven't seen her before.. and it looks like she is smiling at the camera.. V1 is my pick...
I put her picture into Kodak Easyshare program and added the shadow feature and then used the contrast and brightness levels .. hope you like how she came out in the end result..

Still working on the computer one min it is working great the other a snail could out run it loll Smile

Thanks for all the C+C's on the sunsets.. hopefully will see another tonight...

Please remember Rosalie (RosaB)... she wrote a PM letting me know how much your thoughts and prayers mean to her...

A dog is traditionally regarded as a man (or womans of course) best friend. Look into these beautiful eyes and I think you will understand what is meant. That creatire will follow you to the ends of the earth for nothing more than a kind word, a pat on the head and an occasional biscuit. Cracking good shot Dawn.

Version 1 for me Dawn, I know how faithful a dog is from past experience and the eyes convey that so well. Funny really, remember, it doesn't matter what sort of dog you's basically a Wolf, a beautiful animal in my opinion.
