Personally, I read in dog’s eyes -“why did you stick this tasteless, disgusting piece of paper in to my mouth?”


Original image came out a bit flat. I used dodging and burning to bring up texture and colors, and especially catch light in the dog’s right eye.

or clone them out

Congrats on finally getting the ribbon you deserved :D Sucks that you lose your week on the front page, though.

A 7.2 doesn't get a ribbon. This is terrific...I love the expression in the dog's eyes. What a terrific image!!! Congrats on 4th place.

Sorry Lonz, this is a cute shot but is already overated here on DPC.
02/23/2009 12:16:21 AM
I'm flabergasted that this didn't make front page. The first 3 are good, artfull, but this is a damn good photograph.

Absolutely love the perspective and DOF usage; you've totally captured the longing of having the bowl filled; wonderful expression!

This has much more personality that most of the pet portraits from the last challenge. Such an awesome shot!

This photograph is very cute. The symmetrical balance is almost perfect on both sides.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2009 11:11:11 AM
Wow! The angle of this shot is very creative, and gives more emphasis to the dog's somewhat sad eyes.
