Not an ideal take but it amused me. Many in the set were light with flashes, but this was the best expression. I was trying to look in the same direction as the dog, which was harder than I thought it would be, this one worked because a yellowjacket was investigating the chicken meat. The blur on the dog's head was a result of his tracking it's flight during the exposure.

I truly think this is awesome work Brennan! And I expect that darn yellow jacket causing the dog to move cost you the blue, though had I not been in this one and voting I would not have deducted for this- it's not easy shooting with pets :)

Excellent! You're putting that camera to good use I see.

Great shot. You've got such great lighting and textures here, in that regard, it reminds me of your Fine Arts II, non allegorical image, although this is a softer light, or maybe softer processing. I love that the dog's head is at almost the same height, and is a similar size to yours. The dog clearly has a smaller cranium though!. Congratulations, Brennan!

Super idea, and original. - I persoanlly would liked to have seen a little bit more light in on your face, perhaps a relector may have helped, however the lighting on your dog is lovely and captured the textures of his (I assume) fur very well
