T3 Tied Ralph
Bonsoir Pierre :)
Il est beau Ralph ! Il a sorti sa superbe cravate pour l'occasion :))) Belle pose, regard tendre et son 'papa' a ajouté un magnifique cadre !
Pourquoi T3 ? j'avoue ne pas comprendre :o(((

Pierre he is so handsome! Great Tie for the theme... Fridays are so much fun
This was last year... How much more distinguished does he look a year later?

He photographs very well and your PP work is excellent here, My lab is 10 now and pretty much the same going on 1 1/2 though
TFS and for joining in the fun, next weeks theme is sports or sporting.

My Dearest "Pierre"-
This is a wonderful posting for the theme, but I would rather you had not mentioned Christmas, just yet. Lovely Dog and well .. interesting Tie. Sorry about the mix up.
Thanks for sharing.

That's a great looking dog Pierre. And yes, I can tell he's old, but 15 is indeed an impressive age for a retriever. He gives you a great pose there and deserve a scratch behind the ear for it and a point from me. On the picture now, sorry but I'm going to be honest... Technically it is weak. The composition is great but his white fur is overexposed quite badly. Such light fur is rather difficult to expose properly using flash. Most of the detail is lost and there are plenty of highlights. Blurring the background in post-processing is very obvious and unsightly, leaving a hallo around the dog. I find frames like this that leave parts of the picture hanging out to be very annoying and amateurish, but this is certainly a matter of personal taste.

Wonderful portrait Ralph. Very nicely framed, of course, nice colors and perfect sharpness and detail.
PS: And now I'm going to analyse the theme in order to start preparing my posting :)

I love the way the framing works .. both with the subject moving through it technique and the tone .. much wisdom in those old eyes .. I think I see some strange fragment working through the background and over his eye on the right side of the image .. wonderful senior fellow .. very nice image.
