It's a good capture, well done.

The only thing I would say is that to me, the soldier looks like he has been superimposed into the frame. His pose doesn't seem very natural (which would have been my preference but just my opinion of course).
It looks like he is actually posing for the photo rather than trying to restrain the dog.

Wow what a fantastic dog
I guess the soldier is well in control of his dog and not worried about you taking the pics

Well done on the EC. The dog is great, really fierce! But to me, the soldier looks too friendly, and the lead is loose, so I guess you weren't in too much danger!!!

Yes, fluffy bunnies now, please.
Amazing shot, though. Just too scary for me!

I was never happy with the soldier, he was shouting to get the dog going and having quite a battle holding onto the dog, he actually looks though he is smiling and the lead is loose. There was another soldier behind me with the big padded arm on and this is what the dog was interested in and on a couple of occasions he actually got level with me. I was using an 18mm lens so I could feel his breath as the handler walk the dog onto me.

Great capture which does look a bit posed with the smile. Good job the man with the padded arm was there or the dog might not have looked so fierce. I often wonder what these dogs do when they get an intruder without a padded arm.

Love this picture Mr PodGod, and trust me, I was fully in control of the
Little beast, hence the white knuckles! Sorry buy the way, I couldnt help but smile, must admit that training the dogs was just about as fun as it gets. + the baiter (the guy with the padded arm) was making me laugh.

You took a fair few snaps that day? Couldnt send me some of the others by any chance could you?? Cheeky I know, but we did help you to achieve the exclusive Editor's Choice award did we not????
