Greetings from the Critique Club

Well, first of all congratulations on your first ribbon! Well Done.

Of course, this makes it more difficult for me to provide you with some critical feedback as the image clearly was appealing, but I will have a go.

From a technical point of view I see little to comment on, the composition is good (although I do personally find the table a little distracting, but it does give some context), there are some hot spots on the dog's face, but not even to detract overall from the shot.

Personally, I found it an amusing and well executed image, but not that appealing in the context of the challenge. Perhaps I was a bit too rigid with the interpretation of this challenge, but I would likely not use this in any kind of magazine to portray a business person. Good job not everyone thinks the same!

Well done anyway for appealing to the DPC masses.

Sarah

He might apply for a position as an advertising mascot. There's this lizard that's really starting to annoy me and he could use a more endearing replacement.

I'm a dog owner, so I have to try to be unbiased, but I know what this look means ;) This is both clever and sound, technically and thematically. 8

Same old stereotypical attitudes by employers afraid they can't teach an old dog new tricks. :) LOL - what's really funny about this is I have interviewed many people who had this same expression. :)
