Re: processing

I'm more interested in your processing. In the first image in particular, your dog is robbed of contrast by the dark tones being nowhere near the dark end of the histogram. A simple levels adjustment to set the black point to 20 and pulling the midpoint down to 1.2 or 1.3 (to brighten the midtones and open up the shadows to a lesser degree) makes a big difference to the impact of the result, at least for my taste.

Thanks John - great advice and the first image should be updated.
