    the light source is actually a window. I tried to work with it...if I was to theoretically place a light on the left, wouldn't that take away a lot of the mood?

    I like them a lot. I love B&W photos! I would never add light to it. It would take away from the "depressed" look if the dog was all lit up.

    I think you caught the mood completely.

    Sure, some light from our left would balance it a bit, and give a hint more shadow detail, but sometimes you just go with what's there.

    I know if I tried to put a reflector of some sort with my dog, the whole pose and mood would be wrecked.

    I will cheat a bit in post processing on something like this, and add a catchlight to the shadowed eye, to balance things just a bit more.
