Curious what this PP looks like to others. I kind of like it, but wonder if something could be done better.

If you look at the ridge of the dog's back you can see visible evidence that it is a composite image; the green pixels are very obvious and the luminance of the background does not match the subject.

Im not sure about the pose in general... when I look at it, my eyes immediately go to the left to follow where the dog is looking and fall right out of the image.

I like the contrast of the brown and green as well. I would definitely try to crop or patch that white thing in the far upper left though, so ALL of the background melts together in green.

Thank you. I think I like the original too after posting this. I'm not much of a PP person to begin with! Just thought I would try something new.

Thank you! Yes, I see that now on his back. I'm sure that can be fixed, but after reading the reviews I think the original might be better.

Thank you for your opinions and advice. I didn't even notice the white thing in the corner, which is my garage by the way. That needs to go. I thought the brownish background would be a little more artsy ... but I'm not a pro at PP, so I will keep trying. It is kind of fun messing around in photoshop, but for the long haul I just don't have the time.

Thank you everyone for your reply's!

I like the original because it looks more natural.

+1 for another boxer owner!

Definitely liking the original better...what made you want to change the background to begin with? I think it would have been better if we could at least see both of his eyes, although not necessarily looking straight at the camera. Other than that, the top left corner would bug me. Although, that could easily be cloned out.
