Portrait of Daisy

by davidstorm

Our dog Daisy is particularly difficult to photograph due to the amount of hair around her eyes and her colouring which is difficult to expose properly. I think this one is about right.

Thanks again to you all for your comments. For Maria, Daisy is a Tibetan Terrier and is a lady not a gent! Tibetan Terriers are not Terriers at all and originated from dogs kept by Tibetan Monks in the mountains.

That's lovely David,

Heaven knows how you managed to get her to stay still, my dogs see the camera and run.

Kind regards
Charlotte

The in-your-face pose almost gives her a human quality as she looks straight at you. Good detail and I like the treatment round the edges too.
