  • What a fantastic image and an immediate favorite in this competition filled with many wonderful images. The rich blacks and the clean whites are the mark of a skilled conversion, and the contrast between the heaped gourds and the lying dog is truly outstanding ... wonderful textures and framing ... a truly superb image. Congrats! ~ illona

  • This image is stunning in its simplicity. The focus is wonderful and the variety of textures and details from the fur to the dusting of snow keep the viewer's eye moving throughout the frame. The interaction/connection between the two dogs is lovely. Nicely done! ~ illona

  • What a stunning image ... the framing is spectacular, balancing the sitting dog in the opening with the sun piercing through the forest. In a photo competition where there are so many stellar images, this one truly stands out. Wonderfully seen, captured and managed in post. ~ illona

  • What a fabulous landscape and capture. With the subject of a black-and-white dog, the decision to convert this to black-and-white allows the subject to truly stand out in this stunning landscape. Beautiful clean whites and deep blacks, along with the variety of textures, make this an immediately favorite image. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • This is a wonderful image of a stunning dog. The shallow depth of field and the lines of the trees help draw us directly into this husky's intense gaze, and the foreground blur give this image a misty feel. Nicely shot and handled in post. ~ illona

  • This is a magical image ... the white dog standing in the misty landscape, looking off in the distance draws us in. The trees receding into the mist and the shimmer in the sky are expertly handled in post. Nicely done. ~ illona
