Very beautiful but not exceptional. I predict 6.1111

Lovely pet portrait - light is maybe a bit strong. Not a fan of the wrinkled surface he's on. Love the direct gaze and alert pose. Gave it an eight but would not expect it to score much higher than your guess. 6.3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 07:15:25 PM
Could be a classic but cries for something in the background instead of the harshly cutoff pitch black. Still your guess should carry: 6.31

A very handsome dog. I say 6.0
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 04:00:43 PM
I'd say 6.1. Love the tension of the wrinkled carpet.

Hard to explain 4 or so.

Superb pet shot. Being a dog lover I will agree with your score

My guess is 6.472
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 04:37:57 AM
This is among a relatively small number of images that I think will score well. 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 12:21:29 AM
Light feels a bit hot, but I like how s/he sits in the frame. 5.7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 07:43:22 PM
An excellent portrait of a handsome dog. I think you are accurate at 6.3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 05:07:34 PM
I gave it a eight. Guessing a 6.789.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 11:49:29 AM
Great photo! 7, but on the average, I think you're close. I predict 6.18
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 10:36:18 AM
Oh yes, right up DPC alley! Will do better than your prediction.

The sheen works really well. I guess 6.98
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful dog and wonderful light! 6.46
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 04:07:40 AM
has a "painting" feel on it - 6 from me and I predict a 6.15
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 01:44:22 AM
DPC like professionalism. I would agree with your ballpark figure. Gussing 6.4226
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 11:52:13 PM
I like this, its well done. the lighting is attractive black back ground id awesome, i'n not sure if i like the movement in the drop sheet or not it would be more relaxed if the sheet weren't wrinkled but does it need to be relaxed, maybe not eh? I'm hoping you underestimated your score, I'm going to predict at least 7 and vote an eight Good Luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 10:42:49 PM
This is a dignified portrait and I like the rich gold tones. I do not like the black background just because it's dull and no challenge. But this will not bother DPC voters. I will give you a six and they will give you 6.57
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 09:42:03 PM
Great clean shot of a beautiful pal. A bit soft - but after all, it is a dog ;) 6.64

I am guessing a ribbon is in your future. Beautiful portrait. A 10 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 06:40:39 PM
LOVE the lighting and the tension in the pose. Looks like s/he is going to get up any second now. You guessed low. 7.23
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely. 10. My favorite of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:55:48 AM
I like that the floor and the animal are tuned in, texture and color-wise. I'm thinking DPC voters will like this. I predict 5.8, overall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:13:45 AM
Excellent shot. lingering soul in the eyes. I say 6.65, Gave you a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 04:49:49 AM
Not a bad pet portrait, I just feel like getting in there and straightening the rug, but I know how it is he probably moved around a bit before you got this right :)

I think score is a little high, not much but maybe around 6.166
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 04:47:28 AM
nice doggy expression and nice doggy expressions do well here I think. your guess is good, I predict 6.45

02/05/2015 01:53:28 AM
Superb composition and lighting and what a gorgeous dog. I estimate 7.1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 12:45:25 AM
Yummy pet portrait! Love the colors and the texture in the foreground. A nice capture of a furry friend! One of my top 3 picks in this challenge a nine from me, I think you will get a 6.9 from the voters
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I voted before looking at titles, now commenting.

Cute portrait, but not a ton beyond that.

My guess: 5.71
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 09:32:32 PM
What a beautiful dog! This looks like a painting. To me this is a 7

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:17:39 PM
6.752 (I gave it a nine) Tied for first in my book. :D

6 was given, I would guess a vote of 5.7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 04:22:29 PM
6 for the doggie
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 08:43:22 PM
Beautiful animal portrait. Beautiful dog. I predict 6.4.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 08:16:49 PM
Excellent lighting. Processing is wonderful. I thought at first that the blanket wrinkles detracted, but upon further consideration I like them. I scored higher than: 6.43
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 06:29:11 PM
Beautiful healthy looking dog. Nice crisp image that really pops.
But I the contrast between the black background and the floor cloth give an uneasy felling of the dog being on an edge. Like he/she could fall off the back. I punched in a seven.
Back to post my guess. 6.19
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 04:54:44 PM
nah, it's a pet portrait which everyone loves, and the lighting is silky and smooth. 6.863
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 02:27:48 PM
Hello, I voted a few days ago, now returning for comments. I think that you estimated your score very well, I first gave you a six and now raising it to seven, I predict that you will finish at 6,2897
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2015 10:24:45 PM
Very very nice. Beautifull photographe. For me 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2015 09:42:45 AM
OK, 6.3 I'm torn here. On the one hand it's a terrific portrait of a fine looking dog. On the other hand it feels a bit artificial, though I can't pinpoint exactly why.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2015 10:13:10 PM
Beautiful dog. Nice focus and pose. The lighting is pretty good too - just a little hot in a couple small spots. I have to give you higher than your guess.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2015 07:20:53 PM
What a sweet doggie portrait. Great light which accents the brandy colored coat. Maybe the head is a teensy too centered, but with the extended front leg, the pose balances out the composition and horizontal alignment. Gorgeous, adoring brown eyes. Going to get more than a 6 from me.

Best in show award, congrats
