Laying in the late fall dormat grass field near sundown this chocolate lab was watching the activity of me photographing his owner's for a Christmas Card shoot. I was far enough away with my tele zoom that my kneeling position focusing on him did not distract him in the least.

I like the low perspective you got for this photograph of the chocolate lab with the feel of being at head level with the dog, the contrast between the lab and the bokeh of the background which helps to bring a 3D feel to the composition, and just the handsome nature of the dog.

Our styles tell how we wish the world was. Yours seems very romantic.
