This is an amazing picture. I thought is was a sketch, not a photo and the even made it more interesting not knowing which it was at first, that drew me into the picture as well as I love dogs. I love the back drop being the stick. I've love to know how you did that, because this is truly and beautiful peace of phtography and art work. The one thing I could say is it does seem to me like the dog needs to a little darker so it just pops out a pit more, that's my only critique.
