We were wandering around a flea market on a lovely Sunday afternoon in the Fells Point section of Baltimore. We stopped at a table with some jewelry that my wife and kids wanted to look at, and the was another man at the table. He had this nice dog with him. The black dog on the dark background really caught my attention, so I took a couple shots. The dog was rather cooperative.

I really wish I could get rid of those two bright spots. Everything I tried looks terrible.

I think this is a lovely photo I like the composition and perspective and the soft processing however I do think the eyes are a little over processed and do not fit in with the rest of the photo. I also like the title as it implies a story :)

I am not sure what the two bright spots by his nose are but they just completely mess up the picture in my oppinion. the look in the dog's eyes with the blue tones creates an incredibly powerful and emotive photograph, but the eye is natually pulled to those random spots, i would airbrush them lightly with some of the blue color and then the focus goes back to htose amazing eyes.

This is really fabulous - almost perfect. Just wish those highlights on either side of the mouth weren't there.

I love the lighting here. It works so well to bring out the shape and texture of the pup in this lowkey shot. The eyes are great. I think the bright spots at the bottom of the frame are distracting. Very nicely done. 7 from me.

Oh, I get it. If you want to buy fleas, you get them from the dog. ;-Þ
Nice colour...

I am not usually a dog and cat picture person but, this on is a exception. You really did a great job of catching a mood here and the technical aspects are excellent.
