Welcome to the forum. I don't think I have seen you around here before!

Two points for down low, eye level capture. That's spot on!
I am a fan of shallow DOF and I think it works well here.
On my laptop looks like some blown out whites and chance to pull up some shadows.
I'd clone out the twig even with the eyes on the left.
Clone out or, to my preference crop from right to eliminate twig.
Can't comment on color balance/temp on my laptop.

+1 @ much of Scott ... which I guess is my cue for color. There seems to be a (cool) blue cast, so I've tweaked on it. Can be hard to gauge how warm / neutral you might want it, but here's a warmer version.

Hopefully this lets your pal shine through a bit more for others to see a bit more of him what you do.

I suppose this was a morning light, shade or fooled WB (extensive G > M/B) shot, hence the cool tones. The question I had to ask was whether the intent was to present the "time of day", or mood of the cool light ... or to showcase your beloved pal. I tried for more of the latter. Hopefully, you get the gist.

And with the clone / crop.

As always, S&P to taste ... which always comes AFTER a nice capture.
Thanks for sharing your pal with us.

When I first saw the OP image I liked it but then I saw Kent's edit and I liked it even more!

Beautiful pup and capture!
And nice job on the edit Kent!

Couldn't resist playing with this one. Love your pup! I riffed off the ideas from Scott and Kent, but felt they were a tad too warm. I cloned out twigs on both sides, smoothed that line at the top and color matched a tad, so that the band at the top wasn't as varied... also cloned out the goo in the pup's eye corners. So here is my version...

I really like the browns (in original pic) on Boocha's face and the way it contrasts the rest of his body, if that can be retained in the post-processing, I could appreciate it. The ears couldn't have been more perfectly placed, nice job posing Boocha!

I like the PP Sharona did. Not only the cooler tone, but cloning of the tears adds a bit more interest to the eyes.

Agree with all the great suggestions made. Maybe I need to calibrate my monitor because Im seeing green on little Boocha in Kent's version, but not in Sharona's.

Dale, I purposely reduced the yellow/green tone. :-)
