I think I may have picked the wrong one.
I had 4 poses that made the final cut. I asked 3 people which one they liked best. They all had different answers. These are the 3 that they selected. I entered my favorite. *sigh*

I was torn between a standard portrait shot and something a bit different. Having a top line of 'headshot's ' already I went for the bit different.

I like my entry (on the right) but the headshot may have scored better.

I know your entry did very well for itself but I think that first picture is great.

I took about 30 shots total, with a number being head shots ... many of which came out good, with nice sharp eyes, but which were less interesting to me than the fuller poses.

Here are a couple of outtakes I seriously considered; I literally debated which one to enter right down to the submission deadline.

' CNovack pointed out in her comment, the contrast between the background and Ranger in the image I entered wasn't enough ... which I had also realized after that first "sitting". So I changed it up using a dark brown blanket. In the end, I liked his classic portraiture pose in my challenge entry versus the more "prop-induced" looks seen in the outtakes.

I'd loved to have just bumped the contrast on my submission but couldn't do it justice without violating Basic Editing rules. I've a more heavily processed version for my own use that I may post later, with vignettes and other spot editing that really makes it pop.

Oh and this was my entry:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/992/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_764165.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/992/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_764165.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Do you think I made the right choice?

The above is my favorite one.

Thanks. That was definitely my 2nd choice. The way his hair stood up on the back of his neck leaving that odd shaped indent of white space bugged me, though.

Here's a short video of my Pet Portrait IV shoot that my wife took for her blog.

She post some outtake and behind-the-scenes photos in this blog post.
