Cold Nose Warm Heart

Dog gazes though a sheet of ice. Photographed and composited by StarDog Photo, a Seattle pet portrait studio.Frozen OliveOlive always loved the cold. She pressed her nose against the glass for a better look at the falling snow.

She always loved the cold.


I had this type of portrait in my mind for a while. The idea to blend a dog portrait with a background where it would be hard to see where one started and one stopped. The day I photographed some beautiful ice crystals I could see the final piece. But I had to get there first. I used a number of CC blend modes and OnOne software adding and then deleting numerous attempts. Much like walking thru a maze, I had to find my way to the finish line. The final piece is a mix of warm and cold. Mysteries and interesting. Any comments are welcome.
