Hard day at work

By Mari    
Home after another long day at the farm and a quick sleep in the sun. This has been cropped from the original and converted to b&w with a bit of tweaking of the curves. (sounds painful!)

Thought I recognised that good looking dog....he deserves a rest after all that work & then having to come home & pose for you...even if it is in his sleep ;o)

Lovely shot Mari & the B&W works very well indeed.

Thanks you all for your great comments. Alan, I will certainly try burning his nose (no-one need call the RSPCA)on the shot even though I have no idea what to do, I have seen the burning tool there so will try it. Thanks for the advice.

Mike - he loves posing!! (don't all you males?) :+}

Really nice composition Mari - pure relaxation - those paws just hanging over the edge while he snoozes .. very peaceful and affectionate shot. Never had dogs but I'm always fond of collies .. such fine looking animals and intelligent .. Grin

Thanks a lot Suzi for your comment, appreciated as always. His favourite sleeping position is flat on his back with legs akimbo and head dangling to one side with his tongue hanging out!! (just like us humans really!!!) He also snores!! lol
