Puppy Rocco

<- Click here
The little guy was three months old when we met him. He lived in a box at a farm, inside of a barn, with other puppies. I think he saw the outdoors and sun the day we brought him home. Which was the day before I took this picture. It was hidden in an old file. The camera was a primitive digital with maybe three magapixels. And there wasn't much light in the bedroom. But somehow all of that works to create a storm of grit and wonder. Notice the only color is in the lens glare there on the lower left. I like that. Rocco's become a good friend. And he's adjusted pretty well to city living outside of his barn cardboard box.

Ok, off to a cliché: "He's soo cute!" ;-)

Really, I like the pose and the look in his eyes. Postprocessing is as usual great and unique. However, the bright lower left corner is distracting, isn't it?

Hmmm... it is a taste thing, Thomas. I like the burst of light and the way the spherical aberations actually twirl right up to Rocco's face. It seems so authentic to me.. Gritty. I see your point as well. In a perfect world, I'd have taken two. But given the light slashing across my lens... I was gifted with this, noire sort of thing. Thanks for the comments though. I like direction.
