Fetch that ball

This is Molly, our crazy Labrador.

Photographing black on white is challenging. The camera tends to bring the exposure down because it tries to average the scene at 15% grey so the blacks will be very underexposed and the whites will tend to grey.

I adjusted the automatic exposure so that it would counter this effect and then in photoshop used some leves and selective lightening to lighten (burn) the dog and darken the snow to bring out the details.

I like the intensity in the dog's eyes.
