Award Shortlist   


By DeSilver
This is my second best friend after my Wife.
She never leaves my side, in or out of the house. (The dog that is, the Wife goes were she wants to, I have no control what so ever)
I deleted this image by accident, it was my most successful photo so far and my favourite. What a stupid thing to do! I'm a right dork when it comes to the PC. So I've put it back on just because! Smile

I can see why it was one of your favourite images, a lovely portrait.

Lucky you said she was your second best friend after your wife, otherwise I think you would have been in big trouble....

Smashing capture of manís best friend. Iíve got a dog so know the feeling well. Excellent choice of the non-distracting background and the touch off fill-in flash that I assume has been used has recorded the coat superbly. A pleasure to view.

As an postman, it goes without saying I don't like dogs, especially dogs showing their teeth. As a consequence, I suppose, I don't like photos of dogs, especially dogs showing their teeth. Mind you, if I did like such photos, I think I would have liked this particular photo very much, probably due to the twinkle in the dog's eye.

Mind you, I think I would have cropped the bottom third of the photograph. You can have too much of a bad thing!

I have a friend like that, only mine's a labrador. I have a wife too, and she's just like yours (does what she likes). I also have a track record of losing hundreds of photos when my PC turned turtle last year, so you are nowhere near as dorky as me. I now have a back-up hard drive.

Like the dog.
