This is a photo of my boxer, Zane. He is 6 years old and is like my child. This was photographed at Carolina Beach's Fort Fisher Public Beach Access.

Processing: cloned out leash, cloned out shadows on sand, cloned out spots on face and eyes, auto levels, auto contrast/brightness, selected sea and tinted a little blue into it, sharpened, resized for dpc and added border.

What a great stance and portrait of this dog. Love the lighting, the interesting, yet simple background. Very nicely done. I feel like I could just reach out and pet him!

What a great looking boxer. I miss my boxer, he is still in the states with his grandma. Fortunately I have his cousin, my little English Bully here to keep me company though.

This is a great pet protrait, and the stance of Zane really shows the posture and attitude of this wonderful breed.

Great shot!

Very good shot. The line of the sea is just in the right place in the background making a good composition. Great job!

A "true" portrait, which I appreciate. The image is appealing, but has some slight flaws: it's cropped a little tight to the paws, for one thing. It would be better if the off hind leg were not occluded by the left front leg. And it would be improved dramatically by dropping the camera down a bit more than yoiu already did. Still, a stroing image and a stron score from me. probably won't beat the "cute" shots, but a nice piece of work.

OOOOOOOOooooooh! I love this shot. The stance, the intense look, the backdrop. The only thing that bothers me is the light. Casts a pink hew on the dog's white parts and yes my monitor is calibrated. :) A 9
