Wow, a top 10 finish, there's hope for me yet! This photo was just one of those simple 'right place, right time' kinda things, all I had to do was frame it :D

I thank everyone for the comments, always great to here from people.

Normally, I can stretch and find at least one or two things that I would improve in a shot, OR what the voters wanted, but I can honestly say that in this shot, I don't know that I can.

What works well is the uniform color, and contrasting textures. Of course, the adorable expression helps as well.

My only thought would be that maybe it would make a better Encouragement card rather than a sympathy one (not that it would have changed the score).

Great work, and congrats on the awesome shot.

I only gave out 2 tens. This was one of them. Just outstanding. I think it should have won a ribbon. But congrats - top 10 surely isn't bad. WAY TO GO!!

I really like the colors and the look on the seal's face. I'm not sure that I associate a sleeping seal with a sympathy card, but I didn't mark you down. I'd probably put it in a general "blank card" category.

Great comp, nice image & too cute card!

I'm not sure that sympathy is right for this. It looks more like a 'happy holiday' card to me. Great photo though, with good composition. And even though the colours are all subdued the seal still stands out.

Sharp focus. Perfect title.

This is a great picture - I can just see it on a card. However, I do think it would fit the Retirement catagory of cards more than sympathy.

Cute photo, but not for a smypathy card. I think this would be more of a "Thinking of You" type card.

Nice textures. A wonderful animal shot.

This is bliss!!!! I think I just found my absolute favorite. The monochromatic theme is awesome and the variations of texture delineates the seal from the rocky resting place. Perfect tonality with all of the browns and beiges. I think this gets a 10 - yes it does!!!
