Hi everybody,

A few days ago I adopted my third dog (No, I'm not crazy for adopting another :lol:), Dash. Here are a few pics that I snapped of him today:

Finally, a photo of all three dogs together:

From left to right: Breeze (7 years, 7 months), Dash (4 months) and Casper (16 months)

All of these shots were edited in PSE 6, by upping the saturation and lightening the shadows. I found these shots particularly difficult to take (not only because the dogs wouldn't stay on the charis :)), but because Dash's face would always seem to come out underexposed, and it was difficult to see any details even with using my pop-up flash. Also, there was a large, tall oak tree nearby that casted a nasty shadow over the chairs.

As always, comments, questions and suggestions are always appreciated!

Thanks!

three dogs, that will keep you entertained. I think you did well getting a 4month old to sit still long enough.
In the past, I have had the wife take the photos while I tried to keep the dogs under control.

Being picky now, but the white/grey - Casper might look better on the red chair than the blue one.

Dash looks like he's full of character, nice shots.

Update: The last show will be part of the WASSA (The Winnipeg Area Shetland Sheepdog Association) calender for 2012. It's truly an honour to have my photo featured!
