    My Wife

    I had to wrestle Judy down to take her picture. However, I am prejudiced and don't thnk it looks bad. Especially for a gal who will turn 68 this summer. Hush, don't let her know that I divulged that secret!

    Judy is holding our first rescue dog, Dovie, whom we have had for over 10-years. Dovie is going on 14-years old...

    Great job on finally getting the two of them in a shot! Your wife looks just fine I think. You might want to have a word to your dog however about smiling for the camera

    Not sure if you need the little bit of space on the right - I think you might be able to go in a bit tighter if you wanted to.

    Richard,

    Judy doesn't have a hair out of place which is amazing given you went greco-roman to get the shot. How did you lose and still get the shot???

    Joking aside, beautiful is beautiful and age doesn't mean much.

    **The rule applies to Dovie as well**

    I think its a wonderful photo and your beautiful wife looks amazing for her age. Unfortunately I've seen that blue trinket in the back and my eye keeps getting drawn to that though. Dovie is way too cute.

    I cropped it a bit tighter and I also toned down the bright ornament. I didn't notice it until Kerry brought it to my attention and then it kept popping right out at me.

    BTW: Dovie always looks sad, even when she is happy.

    Very good shot, now you need to get eleven more. This is for a calendar isn't it?

    Like all your stuff with people in it, it is highly professional. This is but another example, particularly so as we know the model was very reluctant.

    Good light.
    I am always tempted to go landscape with more than one subject. This looks pretty good as it is though.

    One word - LOVELY.

    IF required to say more it would be "lovely dog, nice wife".

    LOL! I'm not sure it would be a good idea to quote that to the subjects

    Fine work Richard. Your wife is quite beautiful and the lighting is perfect. No shadowy areas and perfect posture. I like the crop version but would suggest one last touch. IMO the background is a bit busy and distracting in general. If you where to soften the focus on it a bit this would make your wife stand out better against it. Great work.
