you nailed the exposure and focus.  The dog is as cute as can be,

I'm not sure I understand, though, why you need all the processing, which cheapens the end result, IMHO.

 

There is not a great deal of processing. The image was mainly processed in lightroom.

right, LR processing, that's what I meant.  It is a little straining on my eyes to look at.  But that may be just me.  I personally think that less is more in this case.  It is a fine, soulful double-portrait that, IMO, doesn't really need the edgy processing.

It’s a terrific portrait. The dog is great and I like the hint of defiance I see in the man’s face.

 

I see what Adam means, though. The gritty look you’ve achieved looks to me to have been over-enhanced in processing. For my taste it’s overdone - as though you’d set the clarity slider too high. Anything over about 20 can begin to look artificial.

 

But it’s your picture and, all in all, a very fine one indeed.

I personally agree on Adam, a fantastic shot on all levels. Love the POV but the processing is making the image look almost like HDR, distracting a bit.

      I was excited to get a pre-owned M9 Monochrom in excellent condition with very few shots and a new sensor.  Good looking camera, I have to admit.
      Coming from a Q2, honestly, the control/settings layout is a bit dated.  But the pics show promise (I have to go out and shoot more).
      And the mechanical shutter sound and the file write delay...whoah.  The settings offer two modes:  soft and discreet.  Both are so loud, forget about using this camera for wildlife shooting - it would scare away a bear.  And the slow file write is...interesting. 
      But if the pics live up to expectations, I can accept the annoying and tinny shutter sound.
      Cheers!
