How precious. This makes my heart sing. I hope your little girl gets to shower her affection on her own doggie : )

awesome on the cuteness. Total miss on the challenge. 5
I do honestly think this is a great shot any other way. Just not on this challenge. Sorry.

I love love love this photo. The expression on the dogs face is just great!

This picture is very sweet. I don't see the "bizarre nature" connection.
11/09/2004 09:21:42 PM
THAT.........is TOO precious.

How cute is this??? Thanks - you made me smile. Nice composition, the red in the background is a little distracting though.
11/09/2004 07:03:40 PM
Extremely sweet. :)

The framing is nice, but it's too bad the highlights are overexposed, it distracts from the main focal point of the photograph. It'd rate this higher if it this were submitted in another category other than "Bizarre Nature".

Extremely cute shot and lovely lighting. Doesn't feel very bizarre, but I like it.
11/06/2004 09:47:36 PM
Really sweet shot.

Very cute picture. You captured rare moment. The dog's expression is almost human. Maybe not bizzare but heart touching. 9.

Very sweet photo, maximum cutness.
11/06/2004 03:53:16 AM
What I like
-The atmosphere
-The pose
-both 'animals' ( just a joke ) both subjects have their eyes closed... so magical
What I dislike
-The strong light on there heads.
-The background - hey boy in the red... YES YOU get out of the pic :)

I love it and i try to force myself to see the topic in here. I can't be dishonest so unhappily i give it a 6, but if not for the topic of the challange I would have givin it more credit :)

Adorable, but not bizarre.
11/05/2004 08:15:34 PM

11/05/2004 06:38:46 PM
Love the dog.
11/05/2004 01:22:59 PM
:) real sweet... but not that bizzare.
11/04/2004 07:56:52 PM
Very sweet picture. What a good dog! I'm rating lower than I would like only because I don't see how it meets the challenge.
11/04/2004 05:11:42 PM
Very touching capture. I think unfortunately, a lot of people will have a narrow intrepretation of this challenge and say it doesn't fit, but I definitely see the "wonder in amazement" of this shot and think it is very well within the spirit of the challenge. Nice lighting, great composition. Very well done IMO.
11/04/2004 03:57:16 PM
Cute picture.
11/04/2004 12:20:12 PM
A nice shot, but I don't see how it fits Bizarre Nature... Sorry.

I wouldn't really call it "bizarre", but what a touching, great picture. Made me smile.
11/03/2004 01:03:56 PM
not necessarily bizarre, but a good photo that evokes emotion instantly when you see it -- very nice
11/03/2004 10:51:06 AM
