My Rules are, have fun and enjoy each challenge and try to give good sound/helpful CC.
I will only play ONE joker, and not too many Archive shots.
I will again listen and take on the good CC I get from the 52 crowd.

Boy... it didn't take you long to get your 2018 thread up, how long have you been waiting to do it :D

Good luck with your 2018 challenge Dave (y)
I saw @Pinkbikerbabe Mandy put her one up so I thought, now that`s a good idea :D

OK folks if you are going to use Flickr for putting your shots in, then click on my WEEKLY 52 Flickr, and it will take you too the 52 Group but remember you need a Yahoo account for Flickr.

I thought you were shoe-horning in "Your Hairy Ear" for Area ;)
That is a lovely photo, with plenty of detail, sharp eyes, wet nose and a strong background.
Is it a composite (to get that perfectly black background).
Thank you Tim for the nice comment. It was all done in LR6, brushing in Negative Exposure in LR6 :)

That's a gorgeous photo Dave. I think you're done for year right? Just keep posting that one. So much detail even viewing on phone (y)

Thank you Frank, I think I could shoehorn it another 52 times :D

That's a great portrait, how do you get him to sit still and pose?

Thank you Clive, Susie was looking at the rain hitting the window and I thought if I get it right it might come out ok. I was chuffed after the edit :)

Stunning portrait, Dave.
Love all the detail in it.
Thank you Ben, Susie is a funny little dog as she is just scared stiff of rain but she does pose well though.

Beautiful dog. Mine hates the rain too. Comes back looking like a drowned rat.
Thanks Ross, I found out online that a Jack Chi does not like water even when we got her from the RSPCA they told us about her fear of it.

Very nice portrait shot of your pet dog Sir, with a nice pose, some fine detail, and good colour.(y)

Round your area - As others have said that is a very lovely dog, excellent detail..... what more can be said.
Lovely pooch portrait!!

That's a cracking start Dave. The lighting is great.
That's a different take on the theme, Dave, and a striking portrait to kick things off. Susie is a pretty model and you've captured both eyes beautifully (y)
As others have already said Dave thats a cracking photo lovely deatil and catch light too.

Great start to your 2018 52 challange

Was wondering where you were going with a picture of your pooch. Love it, really sharp and looks great against the black bg :D
