real good detail in the snow and the dogs. The colors of their coast compliment each other. The neutral background keeps your eyes on the subject. Something has their full attention.   Posted: 11/10/2020 18:45:10

Another lovely dog image. And they look so intent on whatever they're concentrating. Well done!   Posted: 11/26/2020 12:26:56

I agree with Ron's comments.The dogs are focused, which keeps my eye on them, wondering what they are looking at. There does seems to be a bluish tinge to the snow, which you may consider putting a little more work into. Great Image.   Posted: 11/28/2020 01:58:30

Gail snow can have a bluish tent at times depending the lighting. Looking at the white fur on the dogs it seems natural so I feel the balance is there. A camera club member of mine gave a talk once about snow color and how different it can look at based upon time of day and level of sun vs clouds.   Posted: 11/28/2020 11:09:40

Lovely shot as stated before the colors of the dogs coats compliment each other. The shot of the dog on the left is extremely sharp but the focus is fading on the dog on the right. Also, I think a lower angle would give a different perspective. Excellent effort.   Posted: 11/28/2020 10:18:31

This is a great tight dog portrait with eyes and noses in focus. They are very intent so does make me curious what they are fixated on. Not sure I'd suggest anything other than double checking the highlights a bit.   Posted: 11/28/2020 11:10:46

Great detail and capture of their intense focus. Nice soft colors against the cold snow. Interesting comment about the color of snow.   Posted: 11/30/2020 22:08:09
