  • What a fabulous and unique image. Stunning and minimalist colours, great angle and framing. The starkness of the landscape allows the viewer's eye to fall squarely on the swimming dog and the separation in the middle of the image denoting under- from above-water is perfection. Wonderfully captured and managed in post to create a truly memorable image. Congratulations! ~ illona

  • What an absolutely incredible and memorable image, beautifully captured and managed in post. The receding colours. from warm-toned leaves in the foreground to the cool blue glow in the distance, lead the viewer's eye to the distant dog. So eerie and beautiful at the same time. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • Oh my, what a fun image! And flying puppies are not always the easiest subjects as one must nestle even deeper into the grass to get to their level. The shallow depth of field allows this puppy to fly off the image, and nothing beats those wee upturned paws in full flight. Wonderful capture! Nicely done. ~ illona

  • The focus (of the dog and the camera) and the narrow depth of field, make this intense malinois puppy really stand out. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • This is a lovely image. The saturation of blue gives it the appearance of being extremely cold. Great depth of field and focus. Nicely done. ~ illona

  • This is such a serene image; the kind that I'm sure will mean a lot to the guardian of this old dog when they are gone. It is very story-telling ... what i imagine to be a "shop dog" watching for customers. The light is lovely and the details provide such a journey. Nicely done. ~ illona
