This stark, high contrast image works wonderfully to showcase this small black dog and his intense stare. Beautifully done.

Photographers Comment

I (Elfmet) am thrilled to finally receive the Mark of Excellence award in my favorite category - canine photography. And all the more since my own little dog Anna can be seen here. The photo was taken on a very warm, cloudless summer afternoon in Jena (Germany), where a double dog shoot was scheduled in the midst of modern architecture. Here there were several white walls in a row, between which Anna sat and at that moment looked straight into the camera (Canon 5D MarkIII with the 70-200 Canon lens). Post-production was done in LR & PS.
