As a side note, I do the same on the 7D...just actively realized that the other day. :p

I think the daylight one looks slightly more "natural" but I really like the warmth of the first image.

I would layer the Daylight and the Shade image. Leave the dog it's natural color and then blend in the warmer dirt and other stuff. This way you get the warmth, and the dog stands out more.

Dear oh dear, I should've made this a poll I think. It is Winter here and yes, it was shot in the afternoon with the sun low in the sky.
Thanks everyone for your opinions, I think I've gone off the first because it's a bit overdone, but I do like the warmth of it and the 3rd pic, then again, I like the daylight. Oh decisions decisions. I suppose I can have several versions, it doesn't really matter.

Yeah, that won't help you then. LOL

You might want to look into Photoshop Elements 10. It offers the ability to work with Layers. All I can say about Layers is....well....it can do anything. Seriously, learning to work with Layers can give you unlimited opportunities. As soon as you think you have Layers and Layer Masks figured out, then look into Alpha Channels and Luminosity Masks.
