In this case the white bark on the trees in the left make a distracting white spot in the background in the wide open shot. If you stop it down, you see how nice the trees look and the bark compliments the white snow and white dog.

And I'm a guy who shoots wide open 90% of the time. I would have screwed up this shot.

I hear ya.

good eye.

but now that we see the distraction, we take it into photoshop and do something like burn the distraction

if you read the op's love for his dog, and I'm there with that feeling for my dogs, then there is nothing more important than the dog portrait- see his F2 in his post below
