lovley... i like how the focus is on the food and the dog is there in the background... that kind of allows us to see how the dog is seeing too! (He is only focusing on the food, not on us!)

Congratulations on a very nice photo and deserved ribbon . If I tried that with my dog, I would end up with teeth marks on the lens.

i love this! great color and composition. i bet that pup couldn't wait to get a taste of that! well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is adorable. Great perspective here, the dog in the background is precious.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2004 01:11:47 AM
LOL, this is excellent! Gotta love the way the dog has his/her head tilted to get a better view. Classic Pavlov! Oh, and the dog is well blurred and focus on the meat is good, too. :) 10

Very nice! A little gross... but a very cool concept. Cute dog too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The dog on Atkins? Tasty looking meat! The cocked head really sells this shot. Would make a fun shot for an ad! 8 -danny

Nice shot! This is one of my top picks in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2004 10:16:18 AM
Well concieved and technically good.
What makes this image good for this challenge is the relationship between the main subject and the dog waiting to eat it up. Like this one, the best images should relate the shallow focused main subject in a unique way with the out-of-focus background (or foreground as te case may be).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2004 02:08:30 AM
LOL! I know that kind of look of a dog. However, I would never use a fork: it would be eaten too. Also our Kaja would not sit still for long.
Very well done regarding the composition and light. a 9 from me.

just as well I can't see his eyes! I hope you did't tease him too long? a tasty 10

such an expressive face even out of focus...meets the challenge 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2004 08:10:42 AM
great shot, should be in the top 10 for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2004 03:59:10 AM
Superlative use of SDOF. The clarity and detail of the meat is brilliant (gods, I'm getting hungry now), and I adore the moment you captured the dogs head. One of my favourites this week, can't think of anyway it might be improved, gets a 10

Beautiful subject, absolutely perfect for this challenge. I like how the fork and meat are symetrically located in the center of the frame while the dog has his head tilted. Great idea and well exectued, nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2004 01:10:17 AM
i'm tempted to bite into that myself.. mmmmm, i can feel the texture of juicy raw meat now..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2004 01:04:24 AM
Thats one lucky dog! Fits the challenge well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2004 11:15:32 AM
This is perhaps one of the most creative and unique photos submitted for this challenge. Great clear focal point. Follows the idea very well... Not necessarily something I would hang in the living room... but wonderful!

Interesting shot. I can see my son's dog, Rosie, doing the exact same thing. Good idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2004 09:40:46 PM
Humor always scores high with me and especially with great shot! One of my tops!!! 9 LOL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2004 08:07:06 PM
Just love this one - totally fresh take on the challenge and a really good use of DOF rather than a gratuitous object (as is the case for mine I'm afraid!) shot close up. This has to be a 10 because I this really represents the concept and is not over-perfect. [10]

02/10/2004 06:42:41 PM
good one...

I hope you gave it to him after the shot...

This one just cracks me up! One of those photos that turns a "grey day" into a "giggle day". Original. Well done and good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2004 11:06:55 AM
Excellent! If I could vote, I'd give it a 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2004 02:51:09 AM
catch me if you can! poor doggy, he is craving for this meat . Excellent shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2004 12:05:22 AM
Love this shot! ...... but, I personally would have used a piece of grilled steak (maybe with a grill mark on it), would have been more appealing to me. I know the desaturation would not have been as pronounced, but it would have still been effective in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2004 04:19:13 PM
Neat idea that works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2004 10:52:14 AM
Too Damn cute!! OK, well the meat looks a little gross :), but the concept is great. LOVE the dogs pose, even though you can't see his face you can get the feel of what he wants.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2004 10:43:16 AM
I like the unusual viewpoint here - shows such a different perspective. Although the meat gives a wonderful rich colour against the black, white and grey of dog and paving, I don't know that it's the most appealing foreground subject - and I quite like the look and feel of raw meat. Wonder whether a doggie biscuit would have made a good alternative or whether the lack of vibrant colour would have made it too dull? Anyway, this one has certainly made me think about the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2004 06:58:45 AM
Yuch! But lovely composition and idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2004 04:02:09 AM
DoF is great but the composition is too symmetrical - perhaps set the two elements on a diagonal?
