My dog Gap with a leaf blower pointed at his head, poor lad, it's a hard life being a model, he did get nearly a full bag of delicious treats for it though.

Oh man! I am SO impressed! Even if I slightly blow on my dog's face to stop her from uncontrollably kissing me... she freaks out and runs.

This is just plain beautiful! He has that far away... other world look in his windblown eyes. 10+

Gap is a martyr! LOL! Congrats on your ribbon!

Congrats on the ribbon. He tolerated a leaf blower pointed at him? Gee, my dog will hardly even tolerate a camera pointed at her. Anyway, you got a great result and I'm glad you rewarded Gap for his tolerance.

Hehehehe, like one of those slo-mo hair product commercials. Love all the details with the whiskers. Congrats on the ribbon!

Congratulations on the ribbon. Great shot, no absolutely fantastic shot.
I don't want to be rude, but only a hound would actually sit still in front of a leaf blower ;-)

My challenge favorite and top vote. Beautiful shot, well lighted. I've heard of working for peanuts but not of working for dog treats.

Terrific light and great detail on what appears to be a dark dog. There is nothing they like better than to have their head into a breeze, I think. I would like this better with a background that helps me with the illusion that this dog is out in the open or riding with his head out a car window or something like that. 9

handsome! Very well done.

This strikes an emotional chord with me, as my golden retriever loved the wind in her face as we drove down the road. Superb b&w. Nice conversion. I suppose it's the curl of the ear on the far left which makes this magical. Tolerant dog. 9

Your BW processing is outstanding. The subtle changes in tone really work. And Weimaraners rock. The only thing that bothers me about this image is the effect of the wind is a bit too subtle. Either way, I like the shot. Could even see hanging it.

A splendidly lit portrait of your canine friend! Consider me jealous -- would love to take studio-quality images of my animals like this. B&W was a perfect choice!
