    I know this shot is probably not everyone's cup of tea. But I have a coupon to use (and quickly) for printing to canvas. When I look at most my shots, I only see the flaws. So I have decided to pick a subject that is dear to me rather than some masterful photo (which I haven't taken yet). There's nothing I love more than my wife and our 2 dogs and I loved the lens flare I caught as the sun was going down on one of nightly walks. I thought a little overprocessing might work well for a print to canvas. This photo is straight out of camera. Please feel free to work on it (if you enjoy that kind of thing) and submit your interpretation (if you're willing to share).
    I'm leaning towards doing a square, but am open to different aspect ratios. Click through to grab the full original size from flickr.

    Here's my original processing (admittedly kind of amateurish......done around a year ago) that I'm thinking of going with (although I would do a bit of noise removal).

    What would you do? how would you change it? Do you have any experience with printing to canvas? Thanks all for your time.
