I actually had my camera set to capture some action shots of him playing in the snow..but he was not working with me that day...so I snapped this instead.. It could probably use a crop...what do you guys and gals think?
This is a cute puppy! No doubt.
Exposure worked fine, as domromer is already saying. Good. No doubt.
Your idea of maybe cropping in a little closer is a valid one, too. Try it and see how much you will then like the result. I think this photo offers room for a nice crop to get yourself closer!
Excellent exposure with the difficult black and whites.
Crop? - na - you have got her(?) perfectly on a 1/3rd - you obviously have an artistic eye.
One could just add a bit of contrast to her fur, thus...
Not a simple step to do - I've been reading Dan Margulis's books and this change involved using the Blue channel contrast/sharpen action - I've put the (normal) green channel one as an action on my web site if you are interested.
Very well done and thanks for sharing - now send us a bit of snow and I can try it!
All the best
