Yes, the eyes look sort of psycho, but that is actually how she looks. Our neighbor wanted a dog portrait. Is there a way to reduce the psychotic look in a dog's eyes when their eyes are kind of scary to start with?



How is the composition?

The composition is nice. You might have "tucked in the collar" a bit (its a bit distracting), but the flowers do a pretty good job of keeping interest on the subject. Maybe a slightly tighter crop too?

The picture is very grainy (noisy) - what are you using to prep it for the web? Is it that grainy out of the camera? It almost looks like an effect ala Monet ;-)

As far as psychotic dog eyes, if you're not using a flash, its just dumb luck where the reflections fall. If you're using a (on-camera) flash, its practically a guarentee, at least with my dog That much is a pretty simple edit, unless you're on an extreme close-up.

All of my posts are grainy here. I reduced them so they are not so big, and it seems like that makes them worse. It is really frustrating because the prints are so crisp.



Yes, after the fact, I thought, "Oh man!! Look at that awful collar!!!" OOPPSS!

exactly how are you resizing and in what format and editing programme????? also is this a digital photo or a scanned print. If so what dpi are you scanning the photo at??? maybe we can get to the bottom of what the problem is:-)

Actually, at the time, it was a shot with my non-digital Rebel that was turned digital through WalMart online...that was before I got my new digital camera. Now that I have several editing programs, I am getting this figured out!

THANKS!

Hi Wisconsin Girl,

I do not believe resizing itself should increase noise...

Hmmmm......

Here is my take on your poocherooni :-)

You don't happen to recall which tools you used, do you?
