This image is a collaboration between my son, Rich, and myself. Interested in my new camera, he picked it up and started snapping (without adjusting the shutter / aperture, etc). Of course, Sadie, who loves him best of all, was right there wondering what he was doing … so she got snapped!! I loved the expression on her dear face … such curiosity and such love … that I took the image into Photoshop and had some fun. Some layers, one of darkening the background, some work in levels, some burning and dodging, and fun with teeny tiny brushes to enhance her gorgeous coat along the outside edges. Gotta LOVE that Photoshop!!

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens, UV filter. Shutter 1/320, aperture f/8.0, exposure -.33, iso 400, no flash.

    Sadie is so sweet, I love her expression too. Great work in photoshop!

  • Thanks, sweetie!!!! There’s an “effects” challenge floating around here that I posted this and the original version for. Sometimes I think what a hoot it would be to post both versions more often, LOL!!!!
