Paquita opines about winter

I had my exposure compensation turned up, otherwise the light meter would've given her a light-gray face (like 12% or 18% gray). In doing so, I got her eyes to stand out more, which is what I really wanted to show. In the process, I've lost a lot of detail in her white fur, which I expected but didn't matter to me.

(Shot with the Nikon D300 using the 50mm f/1.8 lens; aperture-priority, with aperture set to f/2.8; shutter speed 1/800th second at ISO 200; +0.7 exposure compensation; matrix-metered; auto white balance; normal JPG.)
