Thanks Frank !!! I appreciate you commenting. This has been a learning experience for sure, but in the end it's all about personal tastes.

Thanks Steve !!! No intention to stop, keep on keeping on, learn as we go, fall down, get back up and start all over again. Appreciate the encouragement.

May have been a wrong move, but the only way to find out is to post and see how other's felt. At first I struggled with totally agreeing with you, but now may have changed my mind. I took your suggestion to see how it would appeal to me and I believe there is an improvement?
Dave
I think you misunderstood my statement. I like the soft, low contrast look to this image. I had no issue with that part of it. It was the 'matt' toning over the dog's face that bothered me. While it does give the effect of light bleed coming in from the top right corner I felt because it obscured the dog's face too much (that being the central focus) the image was better served with that effect on the left, allowing the focus to push to the right. In the end, it's about controlling the viewer's eye.
Thanks Duck for all your help. Much appreciated !!! This is my final edit of this image, and I do believe its an improvement from the first.
Dave
Dave, I am late to this discussion, but let me offer my two cents. I prefer the final version but, if it were my image, would crop about 15-20% from the left side. The fellow's white, whispy hair distracts my eye. A tighter frame makes the photo snap for me. Great capture of a beautiful moment. Happy Saint Patrick's Day. Matt

Thanks Matt !!! We all have different opinions, which is a good thing. This image is cropped just about as tight I would like to to go, so I think it will remain as is.
