Pretty much straight out of the camera. Crop and unsharp mask. Save for web.

I shot this picture outside with our Sealyham Terrier puppies. They love to run through these 9" PVC pipes. I thought it might be a nice shot for this challenge, so I turned the tube, laid down and stuck the camera in one end. Now just wait for the puppies! It took quite a few shots, and several cleanings of puppy nose prints off the lens, but I finally got this one. Thanks for all of the nice comments! Oh, and yes, they are real dogs!

I am not sure whether a little tighter crop would have helped. Love it.

What a cute couple! The black circle helps to stand out the lovely dogs very good!
Nice shot indeed! :)

On the pics scored to date this has distict originality in that it is the subjects looking in. This centering of this image works well and the faint hint of radial line and gentle swirls in the surround help draw the eye to the centre.

You have finished this off with a very good capture of the two ickle ones in the middle.
All round, an excellent entry.

Playing around with my browser a bit just to try some cropping, I almost feel like it might have been nice to have more off the top, just slightly leaving a bit of the tube (?) above the circle, giving it a slightly longer than rounder feel? This is cute... I can't tell - are these real or stuffed dogs? No matter what I like the photo. Good job with the exposure.

Very creative photograph. I can't help wonder how you got your "models" to cooperate.

normally I am immune to cuteness - I will make an exception here. Great choice if subject and composition. background is a tiny bit distracting - overexposed and too much detail. Slightly too much detail in foreground. Think that a small DoF would have worked wonders here. I still like a lot.
