[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An endangered wild dog in the Hoedspruit santuary. They are thought to be cruel, since they start tearing their prey apart before it's dead, but actually this is less agonizing then the suffocating that the felines do.
In Hoedspruit my stephson of 15 was actually sitting on the hood of the truck and is the focus of attention of this doggie.
Photo: ajusted levels and applied some bluring to the background, as to create a DOF.

That's a nice dog, I like its colours.

Very nice photo.

Very nice capture Saskia. Very good sharpness and colours. Personally I would prefer a little more space in front of the dog.

A nice portrait. Sharp and well composed.

Nice capture though the thoat and lower face area is a little dull in the shaddow. I would have been tempted to slightly brighten the image before postion. Still nice composition and colours.
