I put my 6 month old dog (tosca) over a white sheet in my garden (daylight). I take into account her black snout so the rest get a little overexposed as she is entirely white (she's not as white as the sheet, just a little more yellowish) but the sun light was so intense that the whites merge all in one.
In photoshop I even adjust the levels because the picture was a little darker for what I meant!
Other minor adjustments, clone 2 or 3 litle flies and adjust a little the color balance to avoid the yellowish shadows.

Sometimes it is acceptable to break a rule - this is the perfect example of it being okay to blow you highlights. Its almost like the dog is popping out of a piece of bright white paper. Ithought it was great.

Great shadow. He really does blend into the background. Maybe the contrast is a touch too much - I think i'd like to see his ears.

at first i didn't like it, but after I studied it for a while, I thought it was amazing. don't know if this was an accident or on purpose, but I like the "disappearance" of the body into the blown out background. nice work if it was planned or not edited.

Cute, I would like to have seen more of his ears a little too hot there. But over all I like the shot animals are hard. good job

funny! i really like the curved shape the dog's neck makes and the cyan shadow.

This I like! I'd like to see this without the shadow also ( i know you couldn't do that within the rules). Poor bloke looks like you're blinding him with your light sorce. Great job.9

Too much lost detail...neck, back, head, ears.
Poor guy needs sunglasses too.

I would have scored this high in the What? challenge, but I think it is a little too overexposed and confusing for this challenge.

too blown out for me

For me, it'd help if the top of the dog's head had more contrast with the background
