Too much noise for me Frank. I can't figure out what's in the left bottom quadrant, from the ear down. It unbalances the photo for me, making it look like the dog is being pushed to its left. Or held steady for the photo. Sad eyes. And no slathering tongue. Matt

He looks like a sad old soldier so I'm taken with the emotion of the image. I'm a bit put off by the noise, and the way the shadowing obscures his snout. I'm wanting a bit of brightening to let me see his nose. Dog's noses are very important. Their nose is their life, how they interact with the world, kind of like our hands. The angle is nice, and the eyes are super.

Understood minniev and thank you for comment...for everyone's enlightenment, the noise is actually from a blend mode as part of the vignette, quite unpopular it seems.........

Thanks once again everyone for taking time to give your thoughts!

I love the emotion, but there's something about it that throws me. Is it noise or does the image look a little soft? S-
