Greetings for the Critique Club:

This is a fine dog portrait - no doubt about that. Your conversion is very nice too and for my money, this is sooooooo much better than your 'Would'a Should'a Could'a'. That one isn't even in the same league as this one - in fact not even the same sport. If this image is something honest and interesting like rugby your other image is obscure and hard to look at - like greek wrestling.

Jokes aside - there's lots to like here, the highlight in the dog's left eye, the CND motif on the collar, the slightly grungy window frame with the water-flecked glass and most of all the personality of Sadie shining through. The overall composition is really good too, with her ear tucking into the corner.

You should be pleased with this version - I think it is an optimal edit and I think those are quite rare.

Well made.

I'm glad this landed in the 5's. It's a sweet portrait. The one negative (and misspelled) comment you got was from a person whose account was deactivated. Probably part of the voter fraud scandal around the Weston challenge.
