Festive Ruby by phil_howcroft

Festive Ruby

It's beginning to feel a bit like Christmas ....when out little whippet Ruby gets her Christmas hat and scarf out....and looks rather cute at the same time.


Here she is in our lounge, back lit by some light from our front window , looking up at my daughter eating some cheesecake and desperately telling her that she would like some too :)


Edited in Rawtherapee with slider adjustment for +0.4EV, a little contrast, a little more saturation and some tone mapping followed by a crop to put Ruby bigger in the frame.
Cute!

@happypat thank ever so much Pat, I really had to bump the ISO up for this and open my aperture really wide , so it is not as sharp and clear as it could be , in fact i almost didn't post it :)

First she was looking at the dog treat Michael was holding, now she's making eyes at your daughter's cheesecake! So when you want to get a photo of Ruby full face do you balance a bit of food on top of your lens? ;-)
Love Ruby's expression, cute capture.
