This is a well deserved 5th place. You captured the dog's youth and playfulness perfectly. Technically, flawless. Superb and congrats on your PB.

This is just so technically perfect and the puppy is adorable! I'm not at all a dog person, but this could almost persuade me to be :-) Sweet!!

I really can't believe that this photo didn't win the blue ribbon in the last challenge. I'm happy you got a personal best with this photo -- but -- I think it should have a ribbon to go along with it. This is freaking AWESOME. Off the chart adorable, and technically flawless!

Man, look at those liquid puppy eyes. LOL can imagine the shape of the boa, funny. Lucky he wasn't just a tad bit older it'd be hanging out of the mouth, etc.
Congrats on a great photo.

Dear Ginger: You are the cutest thing on four legs. I am your new Auntie in Portland, OR. If you ever want to come and see me, I will have homemade doggie treats waiting and you can stick your tongue up my nose whenever you want. Love Auntie K. 20! (10 for photography and 10 for cuteness factor)

7 - Nice. Nice 'feather elements' too. Like to have seen the eyes as sharp as Ginger's right ear.

Ginger is a cute pup. the lighting behind her seems to be a little harsh and distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 11:11:04 AM
Really like the angle of the shot, too cute. And the softness really adds to the picture. Very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

there should have been a "cute pet portrait" comp, would have easily won...7

12/14/2006 11:52:36 PM
Oh my God, Ginger is a sweetheart. Love the lighting, especially inside her ears, and the highlights on her eyes and nose are neat, too. The detail on her velvety ears is good. 10

Laurie is this yours? Looks like your dog that did so well in the last one of these. What a cutie, in any case. Love the pink tones, and the fluff.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love this in high key and the composition is great. The catchlights in the eyes are good and the overall soft focus goes along with the cute and cozy feeling of the shot. Excellent photo.

ah man...that's just not fair!!! Instant "aaaah" factor will take you a point or two above the rest (don't worry I didn't enter this challenge). 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 08:46:43 AM
No fair having a puppy!!! Especially not one who poses. She's really cute. (Note - clean up the stuff in the corner of her right eye; that drives me crazy!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 03:11:25 AM
Love the soft focus. One of the best photos so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 02:06:40 AM
you didn't have to go out and buy a puppy for the challenge you know! ;-)

very cute and congrats on the new dog
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 12:43:22 AM
What a wonderful portrait of this little big, eyed puppy. Whenever they cock their head to the side in curiosity it adds instant appeal to the picture. You captured a great pose and the lighting is excellent. Ginger's portrait screams "cuteness" all over it. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 12:36:38 AM
WOW!!! Adorable!!!

12/13/2006 12:34:01 AM
