    Hard to believe that beautiful coat will soon be in tatters. Don’t think anyone has ever asked you, do you bath/brush him?

    M ~ brush: yes; bathe: no :)

    This is a great photo of Charlie looking up. His eyes are calm and full of trust. The lack of color seems to define everything so sharply so that Charlie looks like a part of his surroundings and his eyes draw you into the photo also. I love it!

    Charlie-o, Charlie-o, wherefore art thou, Charlie-o?

    Oh, there you are!

    This photo of Charlie is stunning (well, really they all are)! I’m loving all the texture, color/lack of color. I’ve been taking photography classes and would be interested to know if there’s a filter on this pix? It almost looks sepia…but then not. If you’re willing to share your secret on this one, I’d love to know. :)

    JW ~ No big secret! I just fiddled with the saturation levels (desaturate, but not all the way).

    Shreve, at first glance I thought that might be a quadtone. If you are not familiar with this technique, here is a link.

    DW ~ Thanks for the link! I will try that!

    Thank you for the info! I’m going to play in PS with some of my photos. Hope you, Charlie, and the Farmily have a great weekend!

    If any of you should happen to be in a music shop, look up the Cecilia Bartoli album “Rossini-Heroines-Gioachino”. Take a loupe.


    Note: Quadtone is meant for reproduction on a very-high quality litho or offset press, using 4 plates. Each different plate adds richness and detail to the image.
