Looks like you have a beautiful dog!!:o) I think maybe positioning his paws in the lower left corner and the back end in the top right corner would have been a more interesting composition :o) You have captured some lovely detail but with the Best of Challenge there was a certain amount of WOW factor needed in the shots and unfortunately I think this is what is lacking here....this is just my opinion :o)

Lighting is harsh and flat (try bouncing the light, or using off-camera flash), and it's quite an unflattering pose.

This may be improved if you were closer to the dog's level instead of looking down on it.

Parody? lol.

Nice dog, but nothing really stands out in this image other than the purple collar. The background is too bland for the color of the dog, the angle isn't interesting & there is an overall lack of contrast.

Sorry, this just looked like a snapshot to me. Try getting lower, and shooting your subject from "dog level" -- lay down on the carpet and put your camera at the same level as the dog's head; you'll be amazed at the difference.

would've been better if the paws were left in

A snapshot of the family pet in a Best of challenge will probabaly not score very high. There's nothing exceptional about the photography or the processing in this one.

A tighter crop of the head and eyes to eliminate a lot of the background carpet would probably make this a more effective pet portrait and seem less like a snapshot. Good focus and exposure, though.

What a cute pup! I wish this photo was crisper, and more alive.

classic and boring shot, why are the legs out of the frame ?

Snapshot of a dog on the carpet. The posing of the ears do little to help the image.

Good shot, the dog is well focused, and the neutral background suits the photo. Such a shame his front paws are cut off.

This shot doesn't do anything for me, sorry.

Nice pic but too snap shotish for dpc
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the flash is harsh and the composition not great with the cropped feet...carpet bg looks cheap and so, this looks more like a family snap than a contender for photo of the year...sorry :-(

A nice looking dog, but this photo doesn't have that added 'thing' that makes me want to look at it again. The exposure is fine, but I think there are a number of things you could have done to inprove the photo:
- try experimenting with different angles and perspectives, perhaps lying down on the floor with the dog, or if you want to take one from above, coming in much closer - this would help to avoid the snapshot look.
- make sure your sharpest point of focus is the dog's eyes; here it appears to be further back, towards the shoulder.
-minor point,perhaps, but from the perspective of a 'non-doggy' person, the exposed ears look rather unsettling - you may want to think about ensuring they are flipped forward.
