Watch Dog by Rhonda F.  Taylor

Two separate photos of my Border Collie Shiloh added in layers, taken on my Canon EOS 50D which have had texture added in three layers in PS CS3 which btw I have altered the colour of her eyes as it worked better for this composition.
Normally they are a lively chestnut brown .

Many thanks to the talented SkeletalMess for allowing us to use his textures, top textured layer is one of his titled ‘Old Testament’ which gave it the magic it lacked before. :)

    I love Border Collies! Such enthusiasm for every moment, which you have captured very well here. Love the textures, too.

  • Thank you Paulette, always good to meet another lover of Border Collies and that is very apt description of them. Im so glad I was able to portray that in this image, really happy that you liked the results. :)

    How wonderful, i have a half border collie and she is the most intelligent dog i have ever had, a really beautiful soul! yours looks gorgeous, love those eyes!

  • Thank you Karyn! they are such special dogs, so devoted and I agree totally..a really beautiful soul, I dont think I could have put it better. :)
    Shiloh is an amazing friend whom I totally adore, really loves to hold hands when she sits with me however is very independant in total contrast to our other one who is a big sook who needs to snuggle in as far as he can…lol Thankyou so much for your wonderful compliment.

    really nice – border collies are such beautiful (and smart!) dogs.

  • thank you betty :) I whole heartedly agree, they are an amazing breed and friend.Apparantly according to a survey they are the smartest of all the breeds which doesnt surprise me in the least…you only have to know one to know they are thinking all the time. lol
