Dogs are the best! It's nice to meet someone who feels the same way about their dog as I do.

He truly is fully relaxed and comfortable - with the single simple decorative ornament hanging on the tree in the backdrop it communicates to me that if one keeps the holiday nice & simple and relaxed one would enjoy the simple pleasure in life rather than have the chaotic whirlwind that mostly happens this time of year. This is the story that this photo communicates to me:-) Love those dynamic tonal ranges you have here as well. Wonderful details can be seen in this beautifully captured and composed B & W pet portrait.

This. Is. Excellent. From the laid back dog, to the single ornament hanging on the left, to the fact it's B&W. Excellent.

Can I just tell you how much I adore this??? Love the reflection, the tones, the textures and of course that glorious moppy dog!!! Oh I just spotted the ornament. Perfect that he's snoozing beneath the tree.

Wow! Not only is your floor perfectly clean, (that reflection is to die for!) but that lone ornament poking its way into the shot just adds to the serenity of this. LOVE it in b/w.

Oh how adorable! A crystal clear and sharp photo, great reflection too. Love that bit of Christmas tree in the background.

Looks very comfortable, as well as fluffy. Looks like a belly rub is in order. I love the perspective and the tone treatment as well. I think either a bit more DOF or a bit less would have been the only change I would have made. Although its near perfect as it is, and I'm a bit wierd. :D

How sweet! I just want to give it a big hug! Love the b/w.

Your dog melted!!! Absolutely perfect perspective to realize just how relaxed he is. The ornament lends a neat little bit of added interest and changes the mood a little, I think. Makes the relaxation more clearly a happy one.

excellent in b/w...the ornament sets the mood nicely ;)

this is amazing! For me, it would work perfectly as an xmas card with the ornament hanging from the tree in the background. You've done a bang up job with the focus and b/w conversion!!

What a fabulous shot of this adorable pooch, Lisa! I love the soft reflection on the floor. The tree branch and ornament provide great visual balance to the image, as well as context. Love it!
