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.
