I have decided to enter The Kennel Club’s Dog Photographer of the Year Award. This is the first year of entering my work into competitions.

Here are some unedited and edited images I took yesterday of our sweet boy. Bruce, or as we call him, Boofy, is an American Staff X that we rescued 8 years ago. He is now 15 but acts like a puppy. He is such a beautiful dog. People stop in the street and say how gorgeous he is. My partner and I agree.

THE POWER OF EDITING RAW

Exposed to the right to retain detail. Decreased brightness, increased contrast, desaturated, increased blacks, brought down brightness of grass and changed the green.

There are just the first round. I haven’t even looked at today’s shots! I’m not too sure which image I like the most.

Can you guess how many treats this took to get the shot?
