    Clearly the dogs have it on this side of the competition. This is a wonderful shot and lovely in b&w. It was high on my favs list, so happy to see it win. Well deserved.

    Very nice dog portrait. Strong contrast suits to this picture. In my favorites.

    Obviously a labour of love, and you have succeeded in capturing her expression beautifully. The choice of B&W is perfect, and the back-lighting superb.

    And a beautiful Bitch indeed !
A fantastic portrait in large part due to the great lighting.
Somehow the blown whites on the bottom works for me,

    Lighting could not get much better than this, such a beautiful image. Her downward glance also adds to the mood. I love this shot.

    A wonderful example of what can be done with available light. Her sweetness shows through. Well done.

    Wow! Great portrait period. Animal, or human, this is fine work.

No. 1.

    A gentle, beautifully lit pet portrait. Love the 'ying and yang' swirl framing of the white on the left and black on the right (if that makes sense!).

    This is a fine portrait. The lighting on the face is quite attractive. The blown highlights at the bottom are a bit overpowering, but certainly in my favs.
