[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Many TL members are sharing photographs of there pets, so I've decided to present to you one of mine. My wife, Patricia, and I, have three pets that we consider more than just pets. I've got so many pics of them, that I didn't no wich one to present, so here's a new one from today.

This is Ralph, my chocolate Labrador.


I am realy just beginning to work with PS CS and not very good with it, so the only PP that was done:

- Frow RAW asjuted luminosity and contrast
- Frame and converted to JPEG

Muy buen retrato de tu mejor amigo.
Los colores y la vida en los ojos están especialmente bien.
Felicitaciones Pierre.

Very sharp and beautiful portrait of your friend... :)
Nice looking dog, strong eyes... :) Well done... :) And cute that you call him chocolate Labrador! :)

Hi Pierre
I think Ralph is giving you the sweetsy look. Meaning he loves you. Nice colours and detail. I may have tried to get more of his neck in the this photo. Still a nice shot.

Bonjour Pierre,
Magnifique photo de Ralph. Cet animal est surement bien traité à voir la brillance de son poil et la tranquilité de son regard. La couleur profonde et le brillant de sa fourrure sont très bien rendus. J'aime particulièrement que les yeux soient si naturels sans la surexposition qu'on retrouve souvent sur ce type de photo. Excellent DOF et acuité d'image! Bravo! Annie

Hi Pierre,
What a majestic shot of Ralph...
I love the light comming from the left...
Great job...


pt in the a.m...... did not want to miss this

Superbe capture. Photo très claire et nette.
Belle bête em plus.
Le plus drôle est qu'il porte le même nom que mon Golden
Bien fait

Hi Pierre,
Great portrait. Could I suggest a little less light to prevent the subject from squinting. Otherwise excellent,
Well done and TFS,

Hi Pierre,

One day when I'm 'all grown-up' ;) I'm going to move out and get my own place and my very own Chocolate lab, my reason why- well look at that photo! They're such a kind breed, smart and agile- not to mention beautiful and cute, especially their chocolaty coats. But what I love best is their faces, like your boy Ralph, they just look so sweet. Could give him a big ol' kiss! :)

Fantastic shot, and I really mean it- good focus on his whiskers/eyes/skin creases and the nose and eyes (aka his whole face!) And I really like the blurry surroundings, they just seem to improve the focus on your dog. And I just love how the sun shines particularly into one of his eyes, and then just deepens the colours in the right eye.

Amazing photo! :)
