greenkoukie - well deserved close up of Zoobs.

If you could, please share the story behing the winning photo....for interest, to all.
- as an amateur, I strive for 3 things:
a) the leather grain, of the nose leather
b) crystal clear focused eyes, that shows the dogs inner soul & heart
c) perfect framing
^^^^ Much easier said than done / if you have any photo tips, I (like many) are all ears...big calendar congrats, you two.

Congratulations! It is an absolutely gorgeous photo. His eyes are so yearning.
My question is, what was he looking at for his eyes to be so expressive?

Thanks for the comments. There are several things that can account for the sharpness. The first is probably the camera gear, a nikon dslr with a very sharp 50mm lens. I used a circular polarizer lens filter to knock down some of the glare on the nose and eyes and help boost the yellow and green colors also. I shot it at a somewhat wide aperture (probably f8 or f11 as I like to with this lens) so the nose and eyes are both focused. I'm not going to lie, there was a good bit of processing as well- burning, dodging, sharpening, etc. and that's where I decided to crop it in a bit more too. I think Zeus's eyes always look very deep in photos because his irises are so dark and therefore reflect the sky more vividly. The lens filter makes those reflections look a little more natural too.
