Nah, it's his eyes. ; )

Great stuff, John. Best of luck with the pup.

Can't imagine a better image for both blues. Fantastic work.
Gap's expression - don't you love it when they do that face, crawling through narrow places?

You were my 9 just because I did not have time to bump it up! I voted too late.
The expression of this dog says it all. Your B&W is so genuine that it does not look like B&W ! it has so much life of its own!

12/14/2011 09:45:03 AM

This will ribbon, John. Brilliant, em, "capture" :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2011 11:47:39 AM
A narrow escape, so very well captured, and a sideway glance which makes the image. B&W is excellent. Framing and choice of focal lenght make for an excellent perspective and tridimensionality in the background.
Excellent.

12/07/2011 09:39:10 AM
Oh that is terrific. Love your title.
