Lucky dog! Beautiful Photo.

This is a really good shot. However, I can't give it a 7+ because to me it seems like my attention is being drawn AWAY from the dog and into the scenery around him. The backlight is supposed to highlight your subject. Like I said, this is a really really good shot, but i'm not sure it's right for this challange.

Sorry though this is a nice image it was clearly stated in the challenge that it was not to be a silhouette.

While there is a small amount of detail in the dog, I would still consider this a silhouette, which isn't allowed in this challenge.

I like this. It almost borders on a silhouette, but with the dog being black, that makes it kind of hard. I wish you could have dodged the eyes a touch. Lovely perspective and the view is killer. If you could just adjust the curves on everything but the dog, it'd really give it some pop, but with basic editing, no go. Overall - I like it. 7

Looks like you did not read the challenge description:
"the subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting"

good composition, but you postprocessed the dog to grey
