This was from film, when I took few nice ones. Picture of our dog and a supersized friends dog.

This shot needs some work. It is very difficult to separate the two dark colored dogs from the dark clothing. The contrast/lighting is rather poor. Since this appears to be a candid shot, I suspect you didn't have much control over the composition or exposure.

I think some improvement could be made in contrast in PS or PSP. That would not be considered manipulation but rather normal post processing. I would be willing to give it a try if it is ok with you.

Like Cal said, it was difficult to separate the dogs from each other.

The candidness of the shot was a plus and obviously you had to take the shots when you could.

Here is the same shot with a couple of tweaks. I adjusted the contrast a bit and boosted the saturation a bit.
