Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 21 July 2016 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Pictured here is Wilma, my in-laws' beagle-basset mix. She is a rescue and an adorable doll.

I had a very hard time choosing between this photo or two other versions of this same photo which were done with 1) selective coloring and 2) black and white. I thought the blue shirt was distracting, so I tried selective coloring to remove the blue, but blue halos outlined Wilma. When I tried a black and white conversion of this photo, it seemed like too much detail was lost and her whiskers were lost.

Photo captured July 16, 2016.

NIKON D7000 1/60 second F/5.6 ISO 800 157 mm (35mm equiv.)
