  • This photo of a small white dog in a dark forest is a fabulous story-telling image. Through expert editing, the little white dog stands out i this dark, almost spooky, environment, and makes us wonder about the story behind it. Nicely done and congratulations. ~ illona

  • This is a fabulous shot that I expect works just as well in color as it does in black-and-white. The wonderful curve of the dock leading us to the leaping dog which is framed so brilliantly by the light reflected on the surface of the lake all work as a masterpiece, drawing the viewer's eye through the image and to the diving dog. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • What a fun, almost comical, image of this smiling dog waiting so patiently for his photo. Lovely use of depth of field and complimentary colors to allow this dog to stand out from his environment. The leading lines of the bridge draw the viewer directly to his lovely panting smile. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • This is a wonderfully mysterious and captivating image. The dog standing out in the murky light, with shadows of people behind him in the distance, immediately draws us in to the image. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • This is a fun image of a dog appearing to howl at the moon. The giveaway is the editing of the fence (to obviously remove his handler/owner). I suggest taking another stab at the editing so that the lines of the fence and sky behind don't reveal the photoshopping, and then the illusion can be complete. Nice vision, though! ~ illona

  • This is an intriguing image, which seems to have a story-telling quality, although we can't tell what the story is as the malinois looks back at the camera. Great use of monotone, while still allowing the dog to stand out. Nicely done. ~ illona
