The Image: I love this room and have had success with Millie our dog there in the past. I remembered this old chair which was from my primary school (they gave them away to parents). I probably sat on it 45 years ago, and we now keep it outside.

I took it on a tripod with window light. Millie kept still for 0.5secs.

The Edit: B and W, Tint, some adjustment layer masks for tonal contrast (Nik), levels, sharpness, noise reduction. Some d and b.

The Prediction: Hope it gets over 6...

What a cutie. I bet everyone wants to sit with the dog - but maybe not in that chair lol.

The title isn't working for me. He (?) looks annoyed. And given that, I'm having trouble reconciling what he and the chair have to do with each other.

I love the texture of the chair against the floor, the tone you gave it is great too, and the perspective is great... but why did you have to add the dog??!!?? I really wish he/she wasnt there (cute as he/she is..)

Also, the shine on the floor right behind the chair is a bit distracting!

Still, cool image!

the chair and the dog make a perfect pair, a bit more sharpness on the dog's face would be nice to strengthen 'the bonding';
