    … I’m betting Alfie goes through life having to tell people she’s not a pit bull….anyway, you have definitely portrayed that “don’t mess with me” look typical of this breed; however, you have also introduced so much warmth with your lighting and those catch-lights. Nice one, Mark.

  • Thanks Kat, my fault I should have said Alfie is a Boy.
    Alfie is actually one of my own Dogs and is the biggest softie golfball ever…..here you have the brave Dog that was scared of a Tesco carrier Bag!

    I see no fear in those eyes…I think he was just joking about the carrier bag!! lol!!
    Have you tried a less busy background with him,,,his dark brindle is so beautiful with those hints of rusts it would be lovely to see! Only a thought because it is a cracking shot!

  • Hi Polly, no I’m not joking this menacing looking Dog is the biggest softie ever, who was indeed scared of a Tesco carry bag blowing across the Field, bless him. Ok just uploaded version 2…….

    It’s a beautiful portrait Mark. I think you have worked the texture very well! I like this texture very much, and think it enhances Alfie splendidly. I also see Polly’s point too… Maybe slightly less busy or slightly lighter, to set her off a bit…. again, just thoughts. This image works! ~kim

  • Thank you very much Kim, for you constructive comments. I’ve just looked at your Portfolio, lovely use of Textures….ah one day I’ll get this cracked.

    The dark textures highlight his face and expression really well. A lighter texture would show more of him in detail and I’m sure would look just a great as this beautiful one does. Either way it is a wonderfully expressive capture. He is beautiful.

  • Thanks Ginny, some very useful tips, yes old Alfie is a very handsome Boy

    What a handsome boy Alfie is – I love the wistful look in his eyes. If I was being un-necessarily picky I would maybe lessen the texture slightly round his chest but I think overall it’s a fabulous portrait

  • Hi Furto, please be picky! Thank you he is a lovely Dog
