    This is from the archives and I thought I'd try to resurrect it with some PP. I would like specific critique on composition and post processing. General critique of the merits if it is print worthy. I have someone that was interested in it.

    Thanks for looking and your comments.

    I can post the original if needed.

    The first indicator that I love a picture is the intense wish that it had been me who took it. Well, this is the case. Not only do I wish to have been the photographer but also I think this screams to be printed and maybe framed.

    All of the above means that I think composition is great, light and colour are spot on, the mood is perfect, and if the dog wasn't there I would have thought this was a painting.

    I just hope no animals were hurt during this shooting :)

    :lmao: No, that's his normal position. Being 13 years old seems to be wearing on him.

    Thank you for the comments. I appreciate you taking the time. The composition and processing are what I am concerned with. I actually used layers to make adjustments.

    Anyone else?

    Yes, kundalini, there is someone else...I love this. I love the mood, resulting from the composition and lighting. The dog is imperative. I could tell the dog had some age on him...sort of twilight years mood. Poignant. Well done.

    I love this. All the little details, the dog enjoying the sunset... everything. I would completely put this on my wall.

    Great picture Kundalini. It reminds me of how warm and peaceful the sun would set in Homestead, Florida. It's definitely a set up worth framing.

    Oh crap!!
    what a wonderful picture.
    I know a great picture when technical issues don't even come to mind, when the emotional impact of the picture just overwhelms.

    This is just too good for words - and makes me break my 'no attaboy' pledge.
