"Abandoned Puppy"

Unfortunately with this one, I thought that black and white were 'complementary colours'.

Still, I like this photo.

The puppys name is "Joji"

Awwwww. . .I think this is an awesome picture! The black and white definitely look like a great complimentary color scheme.

Should have scored higher!

I really like the photo but it just doesn't seem to fit the challenge.

Great shot but do not think it meets the challenge requirements

Cute expression. Interesting framing of the subject. The dirt on the dogs face is moderately distracting. To me, black and white are not complementary colors.

Complementary colours are pairs of colours that contrast strongly when compared to each other.
Black and white are neutrals and not colours at all, and therefore they cannot be complementary colours... white shows the presence of light, and black shows the absence of light. Black and white areas next to each other do demonstrate high contrast, but high contrast gives a different visual effect than complementary colours do in a picture.
Check some of the forum discussions on complementary colours for suggestions on using colour for contrast.

For me, while I think this is a really cute photo, it doesn't meet the complementary colors challenge as well as other entries. Very sweet eyes though.

This does not meet the challenge as both black and white are devoid of acutal colour.
