this beautiful little face belongs to olive, one of our 5 week old miniature wire-haired dachshunds. i wanted to photograph her in such a way as to just capture her head. i have subsequently added some vignetting in lightroom to try and obscure my hands in post production. the water droplet on her whisker by the way was just sheer luck:-)
