No, it's not a monkey! But it looked enough like a monkey that I thought it might work for the challenge. It's a picture I took of a Smooth Black Brussels Griffon at a dog show this weekend.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, but after finishing 190 out of 198, and my personal worst submission, I think I will stop submitting something just so I can click the update button!

funny...this is a situation where some fill flash could have done wonders...tons of contrast between subject and background almost demands it.

Very cute. Unfortunately between the subject's dark furry coat and the lighting we can see very little of her. And while we understand that a retired star's job is to stay out of the limelight, it is the paparazzis job to shed light on more than just her lime-lit glasses.

I am simply agog. I'm trying to think of something witty to write, but my agoggedness is interfering.

Since I am lacking in technical skills, I cannot give helpful comments. I am strictly a photo buff who is trying to improve, but as to telling you what is wrong or right, I am in no position to say. I am simply voting based on whether I like the picture or not. Sorry, maybe someday I will be able to give helpful advice

Monkey. Funny shot, but there's not enough contrast to tell what it is.
