Chiko is amazing golden labrador and I met him last week in Fairview park. He looks a little bit like our family dog Gerina. Chiko is very fast and sometimes it looks like he is flying, so It was challenging to take pictures of him. The sun was really down and evening light like this can bring some magic to the images.
It is amazing how Chiko rest and the way he lay down:
Below you can see how I like to crop my photos. On the left is the original shot. In the middle is cropped image in ratio 2:3 (4:6 inches postcard) and on the right is cropped images in ratio 1:1 . You can click on any image to enlarge it and see more details.
Original is on the left. I cropped the original photo and adjusted the colors in Photoshop. Sometimes I do few different versions and chose the best one when I place them on web. This time I like two versions (below) I don’t know if it is the best that someone can do in Photoshop with a bit over exposed image. Well, there is so much to learn about Photoshop and I would like to attend a course in Dublin to see how I can improve my skills. When you look at the photos below..Which one do you like more?

I like Chiko’s shiny coat and this photo is just tempting me to do a painting of him.
Thank you for reading my blog. I have many more pictures of Chiko from the same day. He played with our family dog Gerina and also with Fred. Some day I will edit more pictures of these three dogs together and publish little article for you.
I also did photoshoot with Fred few weeks ago, you can have a look at photos of Fred and read the first article about Fred here:
