Picture of the Week Winner–Week 3

Looking for a squirrel

Congrats to Pete Harris who took this great dog shot using his shiny new Nikon D7000 (which is on my Holiday Gift Guide) .

I chose this photo because I love how he  managed to capture the falling snow as well as some snow on his dog for a great composition with a nice bokeh. His settings of f/5.3 @ 1/125 sec were spot on for this shot and he processed it nicely using Lightroom.

I think this should could really benefit from Viveza (which has a Lightroom plug-in) as the dog – especially his eye – could just a little more brightness, and Viveza allows you to do that very easily without creating masks or using Photoshop. You could also do it using Lightroom’s Adjustment brush, but it can be tricky around the hair on the ears which is where Viveza just nails it.

Be sure to click this photo above and leave some feedback on Flickr so this reader can get your feedback both good and bad (be gentle) and feel the love from our readers here!
