Thought it would do well for you, your son is so photogenic, I'm sure it's not the last we will see of him.

I really love the dark on this one. Don't let anyone tell you it's too dark...

The child's expression and body language are wonderful, and I like the lowkey light. Can't make up my mind about whether I'd like the dog in focus or not ... usually I would, but this way s/he seems more stoic somehow, and there's emotion hinted at between the dog and the photographer (who presumably can rescue the dog from the child's grasp with a word).

Really great photo... shame you chopped the dogs head off. Presume you used a large aperture (1-2) as the dogs nose appears to be slightly out of focus?

this is a sweet shot although i feel the softness has been pushed a little too far over into out of focus territory, gave you a 7 :)

Such an emotional and appealing image. I have to go out and get my son the puppy he has always wanted now...thank you!

"A man's or a boy's best friend" is the proper punctuation... But, golly! What a fabulous image! I wish there were a bit more space above Dog's head... but that kid's contented and loving smile... priceless!

Great photo. I love the boy's expression and posture, juxtaposed with the dog which is sitting up straight. I get the sense of story here, which is what for me, makes a good photo great. This dog is the boy's rock.

nice rich contrast. I'd have given higher marks if pooch's eyes were visible. But otherwise a very heart-warming image. The off-center really adds movement....enables me to imagine the boy has moved close to the dog for cuddles.

Contrast is kinda dark for me (some light caught in their eyes would have been good) and the image is a bit soft, your strongest focus seems to be in the boy's sleeve for some reason. It's a lovely dog and a sweet moment though.

The only thing that could've improved this image for me is if the dog was in focus, otherwise I love it

I treuly think this is one of the best shots in the challenge. The soft focus has a powerful impact on this shot. I hope you aren't getting hammered for it.
