    Hope the white shadow has been appropriately compensated for his hard work - congratulations on your TF finish

    Anyway you look at it, this is a fine animal portrait and a well deserved TF finisher. This was easily recognizable as the work of a more experienced photog. So pleased you took the time to enter and comment. Always look forward to your input on both.

    I like the pic very much and the story gives a good boost. My 1:st choice.

    But it's a nice portrait, beautifully lighted, and yes, full of "calmy" feeling after the earthquake :-D :-D
Beautiful low angle too, a nice pic, well done!!

    Very nice portrait of your pet. The exposure is spot on, you know the whites are prone to clipping but you handled it well, I see no blown highlights here. Good job! The mood of the photo also has a lot of emotional impact! Earns the top spot for me. Good luck!

    Lovely portrait, and very good exposure, white fur the most difficult to get right, in my TT, good luck!

    I like the almost monochromatic look of this shot.

    Any good portrait requires good composition and simplicity, good supporting elements, good lighting and great eyes. You have them all here. This is a great animal portrait. The cord on the couch is a minor distraction as is the couch colour which I would have selectively darkened - I do not like the blueness in the image. But you have the pinks and whites, browns and blacks just right. A hint of blown highlights but not enough to interfere with the overall exceptional quality of the image as a whole. My no. 2.

    This is a great portrait! The piping trim on the sofa behind is a bit distracting though. I love the way the boxer is looking right at you. Boxers are such great dogs and wonderful family dogs too.
