I'm thinking of printing and framing this. But I am kinda terrible at retouching right now and I don't want to destroy the picture. Any help?

First things first, you've posted a photo that's wayyy too big for this forum.

Second, a lot is going on around your subject. Cropping helps a bit, but it's not really enough. Here's the best I could do, for my tastes.

Contrasty curves adjustments, dodging and burning masks to help tone down the background a bit.

Some semi opaque overlays to change up the color. Looking back at it now, I may have overdone it...

Epic battle in my mind of whether to focus more on portraiture or architecture. #FirstWorldProblems :roll:

Interesting that most of you cropped to place the dog on the right third of the image and I chose to place him on the left side. Not that there's a correct way to do it, I just find the different choices interesting.

I thought the same thing. I tried it on the left but I didn't liked it too much.

I like the dog better on the left because it leaves some color on the right.
