This one is lovely, really nice. It's always good to see a cat and a dog together, liking each other and you have a wonderful example, see the dog's expression, so sweet...
This is so nice, reminds me of a Berner Sennen we had. When we got it, stil a puppy, it was as big as the two cats we had. So there was a lot of respect between these animals. I expected this to be something of the past when the dog got bigger (about 6 times the size of the cat), but that wasn't the case.
Friends forever :)
The shot itself is really appealing, Anneke. Nice capture, I love both of their expressions... I once had a dog and a cat too, I can still see the cat's head in the dog's beak, while he was chewing gently ;o). Rather impossible with Dingo, I think, as he hates cats... The brownish hues work very well here.
About the blur: I think you should have added the wood to the selection of dog & cat, so it wouldn't have been blurred too -even with a narrow DoF it would have been sharp, so this looks a bit fake.
The blur on the BG works alright, but your selection around dog & cat was a bit too large so some of the BG remained sharp. This could be "repaired" by using a transparency brush over the top layer (dog & cat) to dissolve these spots.
Another idea would be to select dog & cat, leave them in colour, and desaturate the wood & BG. Just something different...

He/she captures magnificent, I was for some minutes admiring the glance among them and nor I repaired in the blots, when the picture tells message the meaning quality is for according to plane.The best work in the gender that I already found in TL.Congratulations.
this is very cute. If we really push beyond our limits we can always be a friend even to our worst enemies. Easier said than done. I like the emotion of this image.

You achieved a great picture, so full of tenderness and very symbolic as well. The tones of sepia are wonderful as are the fur of them!
