Quiet : Week 23 Let's Do 52

Sophie the Newfie Puppy in a Quiet Moment

Here's the original photo.

With 40 years of living with beautiful BIG black dogs, I know how hard it is to get good pictures of them.  They often look like a puddle of black where all detail gets lost. 

Photo Processing :
Layer 1) Original background photo with a few small repairs
Layer 2) Copy Layer 1 - Silver Efex Pro2 - Neutral B/W - Normal Blend Mode 100%
Layer 3) Copy Layer 1 > RadLab : Orange You Glad + EZBurn + Edge Blue + Bilk n Cookies B/W + Montecito - Normal Blend Mode 50%
Layer 4) Crop out bottom part of carpet.

No additional textures added to this one.  Just playing with the lights and shadows.

I am participating in Denise Love's 2017 "Let's Do 52 : 52 Weeks of Photo Prompts" to kick start the lull in my photography.   If you'd like to join us, find out more at the link above.  The more the merrier!
