It’s a pleasure Karen. I think this shot is outstanding in every way. Never mind the outstanding water spray or the light being in exactly the right place or the dog captured at exactly the right moment - and the background being ace - the dog even has catch light’s in his eyes at exactly the right place.

Could not let this shot pass without an award. Work of the finest order this one. Needs to be viewed large to really enjoy.

Fantastic picture, Jason certainly is a handsome fellow. I had two German Shepards a few years ago and I can relate to this picture well, they are just so full of energy.

You were really lucky to have the light in exactaly the right place, to capture the water droplets, everything is just spot on in this picture, I would hope you would have a good chance of getting this published

Very much worth the rewards.
