I had some serious pictures of my friend's daughter and her horse that turned out decent. And still I keep returning to this picture of Biscuit and me out for a drive that I took with my phone earlier today. I worry about the blown highlights and other issues. I worry it may not convey the strong affection she and I share. Still it makes me smile. Hopefully it will make a few voters smile.

I am extremely happy with the score and I am overwhelmed by the comments. I am happy this image connected with lots of voters despite a few technical faults.

=== Post challenge ===

Thanks for the comments and favorites. I am thrilled with the 4th place finish and honored to be hanging in the PH gallery.

Can't believe I didn't comment on my top pick of this challenge. I completely disagree with some commenters, how can someone not see and feel the affection in this image?! Besides, I love it when such a strongly emotional photo appears and goes against all the orthodoxy of composition, light and whatnot... and yet conveys what it intended to. I wouldn't have this any other way. Congrats on the well deserved score and PH!

Quite cute! Made me smile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2012 12:40:35 PM
like the surfing idea, shame the dogs eye detail has been lost by the wind, nice trees and sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2012 09:34:45 PM
Awesome! Great Idea. Love the feel, a bit of motion blur would have added more ..."speed"? Anyway, great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2012 03:49:20 AM
yep, hanging out together, catching the breeze. Love it :)

Heh!! I was at an intersection the other day, a car went by with a young man in his twenties with his head out the window in the back seat. He looked happy! Seems we can learn a lot from dogs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2012 05:04:00 PM
Very nice, photo, great idea. Would've loved it if the dog was facing us, and if the car was cleaner :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2012 12:30:16 PM
harhar!! nice perspective. I wonder if you tried motion-blurring the sourroundings to emphasize speed?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2012 12:12:47 PM
Oh that's great!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2012 11:01:17 AM
This is amusing and in good focus but there are quite a few flaws that spoil it for me; the sky is pretty noisy, the compositon is generally Ok but the perspective makes me want to look away down the road, where there is no point of interest. The blown-out patch on the dog's head is very strong too, it obscures the face which is a shame. This is something all dogs love to do which is nice but I don't feel it particularly portrays affection.

Awesome open air feel. Great deaign elements.

Could this be the famous Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_951260.jpg Biscuit, You are both looking quite cool there, very nice.

Made me laugh. Well composed and good in B/W. Sharpening on the trees looks a little crunchy.
