Can you believe that tongue? Poor Pearl, it is only the first part of May and the heat is very hard on her. But after a few minutes of rest, I shot the second image and she was recovering well. She survived last year's heat just fine but she does love to be inside with us and the air conditioning.
Camera info: Nikon D200, 50mm lens at 1.8, 1/250th, ISO 100, cloudy white balance
Post processing: Curves layer for contrast, lightened her eyes and nose, selected the brick wall and ran a color balance layer to reduce the red, sharpened with the Edge from Kubota actions.
