Oh no...but today is the kick off of the Christmas season here. This is a nice shot, very sharp, could be a post card! Have a great Thanksgiving Day!

Great colors, sharpness, and POV. I like the background as well. I don't think I would change a thing!
TFS and Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Ronald!

HI Ron
I hope you use this one for your Xmas card.
Its cheery, Santa looks friendly and the dog the perfect model.
Good shot

Hi Ron,
Although I don't believe in Santa (never did, we have Sinterklaas in Holland) I do like this picture of the good fella and the dog. Excellent portrait of the two, perfect on composition and technical a fine picture. Good one Ron!

Hello Ronald,

How nice that you should be asked to be involved with such a worthwhile cause. This is a fine result and would make lovely Christmas cards.
Santa has been trained on posing but I think the dog has had even more tuition!!
A pleasing, sharp result.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
