  • "You love me, don't you?"



    Toby, our Foxy Pug is probably thinking that love means food though.

    And with inspiration from "Princess Nutty the Chug"

    Another lickle character, so soulful when they want something

    In the B/W version, I would be tempted to Airbrush the background with 5% Black to mute it down, putting all the emphasis on Toby ?
    The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

      Love it Ross, Pug's and Chihuahua's always have those soulful eyes that say please love me or feed me, it's hard to tell the difference.
      Regards Paul.
      One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.

        Thanks for your feed back, but as I don't use layer programs (yet) I just used Olympus Viewer 3 with the Grainy Film art filter (with red filter & pinhole effects & +1.0 exposure compensation) for this next version of the above.


        I think this works better than the Dramatic Tone B&W & the Red Filter (effect) showed the eyes better too (than without).

          Thanks Paul & Toby gets spoilt too because of it. He's the only one (out of 3 dogs) that gets to stay on our bed at night (mainly because we gave up pushing hime off when he kept bouncing back up again as a pup).

            Like that 2nd version, Ross, makes him much more the centre attraction
            I don't use Layers to do that, just the Paint facility

              Thanks. I sometimes use 'Paint' for some editing etc. too.

                What a great portrait!

                Strange how different the impression given by the colour pic is against the black and white one! I much prefer the colour version.

                How did you attach the biscuit to the front of the lens?

                    Thanks George. It's just wishful thinking on his part. He thinks he can wish & food appears.

                          Thanks Huw. He's cute but has to share the attention with two other dogs, but he probably gets a little more from me with him ensuring we don't ignore him.

                          Thanks Greg. That "Grunt" black plastic roll just happened to be located in the right place for an unintended but fitting effect.
