Awwww! I get that face from my Milly all the time. He is SO cute! And what a great pose to capture that little spirit! Congratulations on a top 20. That is quite an accomplishment in a Pet challenge :)

In my opinion this is still the best shot in the challenge and should have won.
Unlucky.

Love black labs. You definitely captured a submissive, sweet personality here and I like him on your white background. Great perspective.

Lovely clean simple shot, and great expression.

Could this be a friend of 'Jake' ?

Just too adorable. Some odd coloring in the muzzle and noise in the lower leg area makes me think it's been overly processed, but it's still an 8 to me. I just love the composition and the 'stock' background.

I like the expression and the stare that you caught here. I think the solid white background works well too. The only little thing I could nitpick on would be the little sleepy stuff by eyes and the fluff on his lip. I'm always have to rub my dogs eyes before shots :-) Beautiful dog and nicely done. Great work.

Now I decided that I wasn't going to vote on this challenge because the honest truth is I'm not a big fan of pet pics.

However your picture is outstanding, the framing is perfect and I love the depth of field. That coupled with the white background just sets this above the rest.

I'm also impressed a I know photgraphing black dogs can be difficult.

He looks friendly little chap I have to say.

All in all it's a 10 from me (so now I'm going to have to mark the rest to make sure this 10 sticks eh)

Excellent! One of the better shots. I really like the shallow DOF and minimilist background.

great eyes and perspective

Interesting perspective and DOF is perfect. Might like a slightly different angle so he didn't look hunchbacked so much, and I'd clean off the little eye goobers.
