A dog at a "bar"

So I stopped my car in the middle of nowhere to shoot a double rainbow but when I turned I saw this guy :smiley: I jumped at first thinking it was a polar bear haha :crazy_face: That wall he’s leaning on is almost 1.5 meter so it’s a very very big dog and no owner in sight.
He’s supposed to be guarding sheep, this dog, but I guess he took a break to look at what I’ve been up to. He looked so funny, like he was sitting at a bar, only thing missing was a glass of rakija (or jack in the rest of the world). I know it’s not the best image, pretty messy, incorrect focus, but it’s so funny to me :crazy_face:

I didn’t really do any editing on these because the images are terrible and I don’t have an idea about how to approach this edit yet but the subject is awesome. I’d love to see what you all come up with.

It’s great, I did a similar edit on the eyes on another similar shot, but your crop here is perfect!

I used a tight crop on this one. But it’s a pity that the rainbow is lost.

Basic scene-referred, modern edit

I was rather curious so this one was done using multiple instances of the just updated colour calibration module (I wish you could do an on-off independent of the CAT section…) and the still experimental colour balance rgb module. Rest is scene referred and modern, although not automatically set.
