Love the pose & expressions, don't care for the aggressive softening.

To my taste the image is too soft – would have preferred more detail in the dogs’ fur. A cute capture though.

7 - Very nice capture. Wish the 'smooth' pp flowed through upper left, else similar texture discernible in the dogs.

Sweet photo, but for me, the post processing makes it almost appear as more of an illustration than photo. Good lighting & composition and I love the subject matter. 8

my mother has a wiener dog which i've recently begun to love, this is a very cute picture. I would say however that the blurring or smoothing on the skin is a bit overdone imo

Personally, I think that the processing on the dogs is a bit overdone, it makes them look plastic.

Looks like one of those velvet paintings of Elvis. Too over processed for my taste but would sell well at pet shows and hotel lobby gift shops.

Lovely dogs, but a bit too much detail has been processed out :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent processing but the composition could be improved. I'd like to see the whole of the front dog.
