Our dog loves getting his picture taken. If he isn't playing, he's making his sad face. I adjusted the white balance and applied curves.

There are some highlights that are blownout, but I still love this picture and people at work seem to like it.

This must have been taken on a Monday - at least your photo conveys how I feel when the work week begins. (ha, ha) Sweet animal portrait - well done.

Nice composition and subject. It seems like the focal plane is just a little off, but I like the shallow depth of field.

poor puppy. Needs a slight boost in contrast to really shine.
