My son in our new Boarder Collie puppy Zippy. You can expect to see more of them both (as well as my daughter) in future challenges :-)

This was taken in our backyard at night lit by a harsh flood light. The colours were very (too) vibrant. So I toned it down by using Topaz BW and then re-introduce some colour. I like the action and emotion but I may be alone with this. My camera really doesn't like the high iso but the lens did help me out I feel. Hopefully, some others might like this too.

Wish the background was less distracting but you have done a good job minimizing it. Love the focus, light and joyous expression on the boy's face and the motion blur on the animal works, too. DMC and one of my favorites. Voted earlier.

One of my favorite type of newspaper assignments is to capture "wild art", which is defined as "Stand-Alone, Feature Shot, Enterprise art are found moments that are intended to be realistic slices of everyday life" (definition taken from this glossary). These are typically images that caption themselves, not needing a lot of words to get their point across. For this challenge, I'm scoring images as whether I'd like to see them on the front page of a paper as feel good wild art. If I don't think they would make the paper, I'm then asking myself, "does it make me feel good?" If it doesn't do much for me, well then, oh well...

This looks like fun. It could probably stand to be cropped in a bit tighter.
