thanks for looking
Wow. I'd like to write an extensive critique, but at the moment I don't get any further than "Wow!".
I've been looking for a brilliant shot to give my user award to, but it seems I have found it. Well done!!
amazing work, great lighting and processing.
I'm afraid that dog has won my heart
Apart from the emotive thingy this is another great shot
Your model does have an expressive face
amazing image - has all the awe and beauty of those massive paintings that hang on the walls of the great manor houses of royalty and the aristocracy. could rally imagine her as a princess out with the dog. she has amazing hypnotic eyes

I would have gave you my award for it, but it is not available yet.
Stunning image reminiscent of the old masters, it looks like a very natural pose to me and that dog is a beauty,
Great work, excellent subject. Paul

Yes this is just one of those images with "AWARD" written all over it. You should do well nationally and internationally with work of this standard. Absolutely stunning and quite simply leaves the competition well and truly behind. How on earth did you do it???
I'm in complete awe! 12 out of 10!!!
I agree with MikeH's comments - fantastic work and would have my award too if I hadn't of used it yesterday! I think there will be many more
fantastic, your work is amazing......
Super work Bread , just oozes quality , so i shortlisted it !

Detail is crisp and sharp but feels alive with the lighting and pp work. Shortlisted as well, superb.
This one is doing well for you and I am not surprised.Stunning piece of work B & S.Excellent eye contact from both subjects and fabulous light and toning.
"WoW" KNOCKOUT ..Masterpiece.
A very striking image that has amazing impact it looks more like an Old Master than a photograph. The framing by the sky, textures and choice of clothing all work together so well. I'm sure this will do well for you.

WHAT A NIGHT !!!!
THANKS TO EVERYONE
Well deserved - I am late to the party but what a brilliant shot. When you are going to let us into the secret of how you do this!?
It wouldn't look out of place in the National Gallery imho.
(Hope the headache isn't too bad.)
A masterpiece. Any of the great masters from yesteryear would be proud of this. I would hang it on my wall.
both parties look slightly anxious of the awaited arrival - fabulous essence Katie
Well, better late than never, in my case! All the above have already said it. It looks like something seen on manor house walls and is an absolute stunner.
Lost for words, have my award too for what it's worth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thankyou Paul its worth tons !!!!
Great shot, thanks for looking at mine, and if you ever need an album cover - give me a shout!!! :o)
Way-heeeyyy!!!! You got a PA for this! I was hoping you would
Beautiful! A photographic masterpiece.
everything has been said it seems ..so I will add my WOW for this Stunning shot... Hope you have this framed and hanging on your wall.. If not you should !!
Stunning, just superb.
Looks like I'm a bit late saying, "Wow, that's great".
STUNNING WELL DONE
I can not add anything to all of the above comments , which are richly deserved . Other than to say for me this is one of the best images I have ever seen on this site .
Now the music sounds great!! Congrats
Very Landseer, very lovely. Well done.
Extra ...Ordinary .....Photography at it's very very best ....this brings all the elements of what we all strive to do in one remarkable shot .......I see you're proud and you have every right !!!!!!!
No point taking bets on this weeks POTW....in the bag
ps my 2nd user award to your good self ..praise indeed
WOW what a fantastic image, well worthy of all the awards. As Sara has said, surely POTW.
Top notch image, brilliant photography
not much more I can say is there!
Watched this from the start with Codiac, totally amazing!! If only I could get my dog to sit that still. Brilliant, surely it must get POTW!
Hey..............been watching all the progress on this one.....25 USER AWARDS !!!!!!!!!!! got to get a POTW ..........CONGRATULATIONS.
PS : Have a great week-end , mine's a scotch on the rocks lol lol.
Not bad I suppose!
Delighted you kept on posting, this is really a masterclass. (Will you share your methods? How much is camera work and how much post processing?)
You deserve everyone of the awards congrats.
Awesome & outstanding in every way.
Congrats on your PA
Wow dont know what to say about this, absolutly fabulous.
Extremely surprised this didn't get the POTW.
But you have got probably the most UA ever.
Would have given you my award the first time i saw this but it told me i had to wait 6 days. You have the most user awards ive ever seen and every one deserved. As with cole im amazed this didn't get the POTW. heres my award anyway for what its worth
POTY for me! (Photo Of The Year)
Here´s my UA....Had to wait this long for it............
Never seen anything as good as THIS! IMHO.............
Well looks like I must get the fry pan and little french beret out.
Happy eating....for me!
I am astonished this wasn't POTW can't remember seeing a better photo on the site or for that matter a scroll bar for UAs
Quote: I am astonished this wasn't POTW can't remember seeing a better photo on the site or for that matter a scroll bar for UAs
I'm astonished too. I sold my house and had a bet at William Hill that this would win POTW.
The photo of the week only received 106 votes and 3 awards. This has got 186 votes and 32 awards!!! To me this is the photo of the f***in' Century not photo of the week!!!! How do the team decide?? Obviously not on awards and votes, merely opinion. No justice at all!!! We want justice, when do we want it now, we want justice....when do we want it...NOW!...
Andrew (homeless, gutted and destitute!)
photographic 'art' ty for shairing
Didn't even see this one..an no you are not getting anymore Molliegongs...people will talk....taking up carpentry as of now..goodbye cruel world .
It is great it looks like a painting can u tell me the composition?
My image of the year - so far have another User Award.
simply stunning very well done indeed
you havso many comments on this i didnt read them all... i find this very soul touching, full of raw emotion. fantastic shot and manipulation
why on earth does this not have POTW - would be perfect on canvas hung on the wall. yuo can have my user award instead, it is of far more value to achieve
i've decided that i want to marry this lady - she really is very attractive

It simply doesn't deserve photo of the week - It deserves photo of the flaming Century! See my comments of 15 June - I was outraged and still am! (I'm not really homeless though!)
i agree with every word andrew - and also glad to hear you arn't really homeless lol
There is nothing I can say that has not already been said....Very,Very Well Done.

Hear Hear I saw your comment lol.....this must of been the most awarded image ever !!! 34 USER AWARDS !!! still my all time favourite image,
Congratulations Barry .
Well I gave you my user award when I first saw it 9 th June and it all ready had the PA award
I don't know who decides on the POTW but we should have this in its own category as Photo Of The Year
This is clearly a stunning, stunning photograph, but I would love to know, how DO people get such vitality and depth and contrast and colour in their images like this? I have taken what I believe to be some pretty good photos, then I see this and just my heart sinks and my jaw drops.........and I have no idea how to get these effects. Just quite, quite superb!
Just coming back to this as i regularly do......
No disrespect to any other users or posters but this stands heads and shoulders above anything else i've seen this year and there's been some absolute stonkers.
Why this was never voted POTW i'll never ever know.
Think it would be a nice gesture if it was awarded POTY, that's not said lightly either... and know my nose is not brown, i'm also not a sycophant, but please, credit where credits due ladies and gents.
here here .. angie
Agreed. Not sure how I vote or anything like that, but this is astonishing photography and processing. Wonderful stuff and should be recognised as so
Blimey this must have set some kind of record for awards - deseverdly so. Superb
Only just seen this as it was "featured e2 photo" on front page.
Absolutely stunning. World class.
P.S. I bet ill still be in shock for a few days!
Work of this level deserves the awards and praise that has been showered on it. Supern portrait and sucha wonderful image, dramatic and beautiful. The lady is so special in herself, but you've caught that light in her eyes to perfection.
Very well done and hearty congratulations,
Took me a while to get here but I'm glad I made it. Stunning just about covers it I think. It's a word that you see a lot in the gallery but in this case it really does apply. This is a true work of art and I am in awe
great shot, and just in the nick of time!
Still getting comments !!! good on ya xxx
It's all been said! Patti
Cracking image! Congrats on awards...
No wonder why appreciated by many. Certainly deserves an award, but I am not allowed. It is of top most quality.
