Photo of my Labrador in the snow this morning.

I like how the snow was captured as it was falling. I wanted to crop it down so it was just a close up on her face, but I worried that I would get voted down for DNMC.

I am interested at how the exposure and saturation look on other peoples monitors.

Love the shot. I get the feeling that he/she wasn't still like that for long while there was snow to play in.

looks frosty hope the dog did not get frost bite on the nose. I think that you needed to expose for the snow or dogs fur, maybe even use some exposure compensation. You may also want to slightly dodge the eyes.

White dog in white snow and yet artistically done and expertly shot so that he/she stands out very well from the background. The texture of the fur is clear and even the snowflakes on the nose are very evident and contrast nicely with the darker nose. Cold dog whose expression belies the acceptance of Nature. The falling snowflakes in the back are an additional nice touch.
