I took these pictures this weekend for a friend. When he asked me to take the pictures, and do a collage just like this.... I thought of this challenge right away! What a fun shoot!

The dogs are Mollie, Jakey, and Elektra!

4 - The one in the middle's tail and tongue are causing problems. Good selective desaturation(s). Even though the 'restrictions', still think that if the dogs were 'closer'/larger and also the frame (white) slightly narrower, make this even better in my opinion, even with the crazy tongue and tail in the middle.

Hahaha!! I would try swapping the two shots on the right, since I tend to be drawn mostly to the right-most panel, and the middle feller is facing a bit to the left. Bet this was a fun one to shoot! :-)

Perfectly adorable!

Wonderful photos, the set up works well for a triptych.

What a great silly series. Somehow I don't mind the loud border. Those lights are quite the studio prop. compositionally speaking, I think this would be stronger with a more darkly colored dog on the right, something to balance out the darkness of the one on the left.

This is really cute! I wish the lights were a little smaller though as they draw too much attention away from the cute doggies. - 9

Ah hell. I hate to say it, but I think you've included everything a hate in photography in one go. However, seeing beyond the strangenesses - de-sat, props, studio portraits of pets, pets with HATS (!), swagged backgrounds, I do actually find an element of pregression in this entry, and a strong sense of technique (which is a huge saving grace). It holds my eye a little more than I'd like to admit. Good work - of it's type.

The dogs in these shots are hysterical! I think I'd prefer a bit tighter crop for more dog and less drapey background.

Awwwww. . .they are so cute. What a cute Chrsitmas card.
11/14/2005 08:42:59 PM
i like, but the dog on the left sort of throws it off. maybe switch left and middle?
11/14/2005 08:27:35 PM
aww! you shud use this for your Christmas card!! So cute!
11/14/2005 07:03:40 PM
how cute!

PM me please - i need to know where you got those bulbs, or how you made this 'look' like they are in the pic with the animals - i am doing pet portraits and have beenlooking for something to fill the lower front of the frame and this looks great.

Photo wise, i mgiht have put the left panel in the center, dog-color wise, but then i suppsoe you chose based on bulb count? It's always easy to second guess, huh?

Very cute. I'd like to see a little more red in the hat on the first one though. Still wonderful shots.
11/14/2005 03:36:40 AM
Boy I'll bet this'd look great large! Well done! ...'cept the hat on dogs 2 and 3. Tough to do though - I tried the other day.

Is this going to be your Christmas card? Good pictures of the dogs. For purposes of the challenge, I would have made the border smaller, so the pictures of the dogs could be larger and we could see them better.

OK ! YOU WIN. This is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Those dogs rock.

That dog in the middle is cracking me up. Big boofy thing in a santa hat. Classic!!
