I had to bribe him with a treat to get him to almost make eye contact with the camera.
- Cleaned up the eye boogers and few small clumps of sand on his muzzle
- Burned the background with 10% opacity brush. The irregularity in the background is from a mix of wet and dry sand, I liked the effect and was careful to keep it.
- Dodged the eyes just a tiny bit to brighten them
- Minor crop for better framing
The colors/hues are pretty much straight out of camera – took this at sunset, and it was a very pink sunset.
