Woof-Woof is about 55 years old and while my wife is my greatest comfort now, there was a time when I could always rely on Woof-Woof being there for me when I needed him.

Nothing special done, just a WB adjustment, slight curves, USM for contrast, crop, resize, and USM to sharpen.

And Woof-Woof is back up on the shelf.

Well done, background, focus, lighting, theme. I would have cropped the top inch or so but no biggie.

By the wear in the blanket it looks like TWO old true friends :) Get rid of the... crumb?... and it's near perfect, IMHO.

Cute. Seems to lack a little contrast in the sweater/blanket but otherwise nice image. I like the color and overall there is a feeling of warmth.

Wow, this really made me stop. I have a stuffed (what I called a bunny) from when I was about 2, so 26 years ago, that looks exactly like this. Much more worn though out though. I wonder where and when you got it...

Well no picture can say comfort to me more then this!!

I'm not usually big on photos of stuffed animals, but this little old ratty loved one has such character he makes the photo interesting. 6
