    Congratulations to the TT finish, and say hello to the poodle from me. :-)

    Nice finish in a top field though I did have you ranked no. 5 (and better than my entry in my opinion). (And once again Raf and I are spookily in synch with many of our comments!) A really nice image really well composed with that element that takes it above the norm - this is the shot I wish I'd have taken.

    Thanks to all for the nice comments--and the concerns about the dog. This is a dog that lives in the neighborhood, one of three in the house of a friend. Rest assured that she is well taken care of and quite happy. No need to worry! Just caught her in one of her 'reflective' moments.

    A different approach to the theme, I almost can feel the "blue" feeling in the dog... he wants to go out!!! :-) and there's also the blue window... for me, it works for the theme, so it's in my TT, good luck!

P.S. Nice composition, too :-)

    Almost perfect. The slight tilt of the right hand edge of the window being the 'almost' part of that. Love it.

    Dog really does look blue, almost as if saying get me out of here, appears to have those puppy dog eyes. I'm taking this is one of those photos of being in the right place at the right time with camera to catch dog looking out window with that look. I'm suprised there isn't more photos of photos with the blue(sad) look to them, believe yours is only one. TT worthy.

    Great finding. Very nice composition. Very good fit for the theme - with its double meaning. Beautiful!
And how can you still hesitate to help him to get out?!!

    I saw it, and immediately thought, that this is my #1!

    Excellent! I love the composition and you couldn't have fit the theme better than this. What a great shot!

    So many excellent images in this challenge and this is one of them. My only niggle is the slight tapering of the right side of the window frame which detracts from the horizontal vertical angles and which could have been easily corrected by us of a perspective tool in GIMP, for example. Still, the colours, composition, subject, seem near perfect to my eye. A fine photograph.

    This one fits the blues in two ways, good fit for the theme. I like how you cropped it to give the appearance of a frame of blue on the bottom and right.
