I was taking some photos of my neighbors dog (Maple) yesterday. It was -4, so I could see her breath, yet it didn't show up in any of the photos. So, I decided to try adding some in photoshop. Does it look realistic or too fakey? Better without the added breath?

i think without is better as imo it's a little distracting.
but maybe if you make it more transparent then it might work, otherwise it's too much

Its not working for me, looks out of place IMO. The shots are much cleaner without it.

I prefer without. The only one that comes close to working for me is the last one.

Too distracting, original looks better!

Thank you all for your input/advice. I think I was leaning that way, but I needed that extra opinion.
Thank you again : )

It looked like it could be real, esp. how it's coming directly out of the nostrils, but I agree that it's a bit distracting. Great shots, nonetheless!

Definitely without; it looks added in and breath almost never comes straight out to the side unless there's a heavy, side wind.
