    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    The subject is pretty well centred and there is a lot of wasted space all around him. Try getting closer or crop this shot. Also, the color of the wall is not helping this shot at all. The black area on his muzzle is too dark (on my monitor anyway). It might need to be brought up a little bit.

    Good looking dog and the (window?) light is very nice.

    I played with it a lil bit in photo elements. Lightened it, and adjusted the contrast. But with saving it from the internet, it was too small a file to really edit good. I had to soften the dog to make it look good on my end.

    I have to agree with some other comments. Make sure your subject doesn't start to become part of the background (unless you are going for a low key style photo of course).

    You can stop this by having a lighter background and placing your subject a fair distance from it (1-2meters).

    Personally I would try this again with a white background with your shepherd laying on a table or something long cover with black material.

    Good to see the catch light in the eyes. Another way to improve this shot is with a light source highlighting his rear section.
