My trusty model Snoopy. Smelly didn't want to cooperate to much this time. There was quiet a wind so the sand was blowing in her face, aswell as the glasses falling off all the time.


Thank you all for your votes and comments! Kicking myself as I never new the halo looked so bad until I saw it on another monitor. Tks Smelly!

Congrats on the ribbon! It's a delight to share the front page with Snoopy aka Smelly. I love the humour, attitude and colour she brought to the challenge. :)

I'm not surprised to see a mixed bag of comments. I happen to love the concept and humor here, but I'm in the camp of too much halo! But let's face, this image cracks me up, and it put a smile on the face of my daughters. So...I love the ride I get with the photograph, but there is a bit of a bump in the road with the tonemapping!

I'm also surprised to see such a high score here. I would use this as an example of how HDR or shadow/highlight can totally break an image if they are overdone. There is a way to use these dynamic range increasing tools that does not leave such distracting artifacts. Pushing it this far is like turning the radius up way too high in unsharp mask.

I am surprised this is on the front page. The halo in this picture is very distracting and looking through the other pictures there are others that are technically better.

Congratulations on the yellow ribbon. Well done, and very cute!

Talk about attitude, lol - darling picture! Love the colors and your model is quite cute. I like the composition. (Erm, you know 'bout the halo..grin). Great job! Congrats on the ribbon!

What a fun pic. I love the socks! Tell me why she is wearing them. Congrats on the ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This one is the winner for me. Pity about he halo and the odd looking socks though. That detracts a bit otherwise this one would have been in the No.1 spot for sure I think.

That is one cool looking dog ;-) Congrats on your ribbon, Mark.

Is that halo a side-effect of Photomatix - the image looks tonemapped.

What's his name, "Socks"? Gotta love this one. The highly saturated colors work perfectly for this. Hope your model got some doggie treats for putting up with this. A nice high vote for the great photography of this. Also a spiffy "shoehorn" award for injecting some humor into a non-humorous challenge.

Nice Shot, well put together! 8

Joe Cool! Great composition and colors. (the booties don't quite blend with the rest of the scene - looks too warm to me for those) Like how the dog is looking to the side instead of straight ahead. 9 from me :)

I like the illustration-like effect of photo and processing. Very nice. 8

I love this! Only complaint is that it looks a little "over done" in the PP.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2009 03:52:09 PM
Awesome shot! Overall, love it. Somehow, the sky distracts me a bit... too dark, or not blue enough, perhaps.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2009 12:39:39 PM
I'm giving this a 9. The halo around the pooch is the only thing preventing me from handing this a 10

Heh - cool dog dude. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2009 08:30:38 PM
Very funny.

There's a strange halo effect going on behind the dog, especially aroind the collar.

Ha ha ha! Love this one! 10.

Funny, is it in a desert...?
Poor dog has to smell them used socks.

Great pic! Would have liked to see it without the halo effect around the dog, but still scored it well.

cute doggie!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my top 6 images. I'm not too crazy about the signs of editing in terms of halo on the left and a darker area on the right side of the dog.
But the angle you took it and the focal length you used sparks life to the picture making it fun. The green 'leggings' and added colors around his neck makes it even better. 7 from me.

awww...too cute!

it's funny and definitely a candidate for that "Why Dogs Bite" e-mail that's going round :)

The halos knock this photo down quite a few points, but still a contender for the top 10 IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2009 05:45:44 AM
Love the concept. Great pic, but sadly spoiled a bit by the halo in the post processing. Still worthy of a 6 bumped to 7

Oh that is just about too fabulous. The socks. LOL That dog is a great sport. My only nitpick is the vignette around him, like you did a layer and then erased it.
