This also happens to be my current background photo on my computer. And my current favorite photo of Pallo. To me, the colors just blend so nicely. The depth of field means that Pallo's eyes are totally sharp and in focus while the leaves are a pleasant blurred background. It somehow makes him stand out while blending in, all at the same time.
And, I can't stop messing with the photo.
This is what it looked like straight out of camera (ooc).
It was a good photo. The focus and depth of field are obvious and really play their part. But, it is in no way as striking as the version posted above. The colors are dull and it just seems like its missing something. It is a good picture, but not a great one.
My latest version of this picture is this:
I'm sure I will come up with some other edits. I never can leave my favorite photos alone. At least, not until I get new favorites!
