This is our dear friend Carol and her great big lab Watchman. There's nothing Watchie liked more than playing on the rocks and swimming on the city's lakefront. He's been getting up there in years, though, and he can't run around and play like he used to. I have wanted to take a portrait of the two of them for some time, so here it is.

Similar challenge that wedding photographers face with the exposure/ contrast of white dress and black suit. This is very well done, they really do look like they have been together a long time you captured the mood well.

Wonderful! Beautifully captures both!

Wonderful portrait and like Keith said remarkable set of tones. She'll treasure it I'm sure.

Yes, it is a great portrait. Her bright face and light hais are the perfect match for the dog's shadowed black.
Nice that you were able to get a perfect exposure balance.

Oh, this is a wonderful portrait of two great friends. Sweet.

I've been enjoying your photos since we got your Christmas card. My Dad has a lab, and I just LOVE this picture. Any chance I can hire you to take some of my monkeys?

The expression looks very human. They look like old friends. Great portrait here.
