Simplified image. Image to Painter to add some color and hightlights to the snow and Copper...and edit the background... back into PS for smudge brush and final touches. Couldn't handle the eyes; took out some of the red and enhanced a bit.

this is lovely. And you don't know this, but your image captured much better the true color of his fur. My photograph had exagerated reds that you image does not. Well done!
Nancy thank you, i agree with you great photo and subject, liked your posting especialy the snow and the colouring ( i just dream about having painter)
Craig isn't it inspiring when you do something different and people like it ? ( mind you any feed back is nice )
i like yours as well! great softening of the image and love your choice of removal of the distractions, both in snow and with the crop. wonderfully done!
yes. i imagine a chef has similar reactions when he/she creates a dish and where he/she may like it themselves, you never quite know what to expect from others.
it also surprises me that anyone could ever like shrimp, yet the shrimp industry just keeps on growing (not quite sure why all the food analogies today, but they seem to fit ).
Well actually your latest post gives some insight into Craig more so than Cooper.
I do understand the meaning... :-)
However I think he is the exception because he does not droole... only after having his water and we have trained him to come to have his mouth wiped...
However it is still a funny picture...
Regarding Phil's comment:
"Well actually your latest post gives some insight into Craig more so than Cooper" I wouldn't know what to say lol lol
Thanks for letting us play with your pooch, Frank. Cooper is a regal looking puppy.
Here's my basic workflow...
* Opened up shadows with Curves
* Merged onto a new layer ("Base")
* Duplicated "Base"
* Applied Dry Brush filter 2 times to Base copy
* Dragged "Base" above "Base copy"
* Added a hide all layer mask
* Restored some detail by airbrushing white onto the layer mask
* Saved as "work 1"
* Saved as "work 2"
* closed "work 1," "work 2"
* Opened "work 2"
* File > Clone
* Save as "work 3"
* Chose brush variant "Medium Bristle Oils 25" from the Oils group
* Resat = 0 (turning the brush into a blender), diameter 10 pxl
* Blended (smudged) away, changing brush diameter as I went along as needed
* Saved, closed
* Opened "work 3"
* Applied a little sharpening
* Adjusted image size (made smaller)
* File > Save for Web
