Great catch. I like the B&W but I wish this had a little more pop. Seems kinda flat to me.

That is a really neat moment you've captured there. Wonder what the pup is daydreaming about? I experimented with some very minor edits (cropping [of the intruding foot and excess blurred area at bottom], contrast, selective sharpening/coloring, minor straightening) and it seemed to respond well. These edits could be refined to a much greater degree. This is a nice capture. Good eye.



Regards,
Mark

Wonderful catch - good eye. The image looks pretty good but I think a straight B&W would be even better.

As Titus says, the eyes make this.

Hi Titus , thank you for your kind comments
here it is B/W and another one from the same day, the thing i don't like about the second shot is their noses are out of focus, i guess i shouldve maybe had a bit more DOF

The second shot

It is an interesting shot, I would crop a little tighter so the lines of interest are in the upper third of the shot like this.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Keep up the great work!

I like the composition on the first image that was posted. Just the color seems like it could be slightly adjusted.
