Good Things Come In Small Packages

We’ve all heard the saying that “good things come in small packages.” When it comes to the Maltese breed of dog, those words could never be more true. Fun-loving, gentle, loving and so smart, the Maltese is truly a bundle of joy.

This image was captured with the Nikon D7000 and the 50mm f/1.8mm Nikon / Nikkor lens. The background is a lovely field I found not far from Bedford, Pennsylvania. Both images were combined  with much editing in Photoshop CS6 and Corel Painter,  with a lovely texture from Cheryl Tarrant’s Distressed Jewell collection added.

This little darling’s name is Blush, her registered name is GCH Ecstasy’s Glowing Sensation, a finished Grand Champion. Blush was one of the lovely creatures owned by the breeder of our own Buddy, whom we took home at the end of May, 2014, and who has stolen all our hearts. Buddy will be one year old in March.

Shocking to admit, but Buddy’s image was taken with my iPhone … (I know … horrors!!) then added to a lovely field I captured in West Virginia with my Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon / Nikkor lens.  Added together with much editing in Photoshop CS6 and a texture from Distressed Jewell and a bit of hand painting in Corel Painter 11.

As always, comments are welcome (I love dog stories!) … and also as always, a click on the images will take you to my website with a much nicer watermark and better resolution (and shopping suggestions!)

 

Would love to hear your thoughts ...
