Challenge: The Awwwww Effect (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G
Location: my bathtub
Date: Apr 16, 2014
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Apr 15, 2014

This is our dog Holly. I had the idea to shoot her in the tub from almost a month earlier when I was bathing her and noticed how much she would cock her head when I whistled. I got this pic then with my iPhone:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/125000-129999/128323/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1111060.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/125000-129999/128323/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1111060.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Since then I've tried several times to get a properly lit shot that was as cute as the original--I still think the original iPhone shot is the cutest one.

Thanks so much for the comments and votes, Holly is so excited to be on the front page :)

And thanks ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Tanguera for putting an actual word to this--I never knew the word "baroo" till this week!

Adorable face indeed!

Wish the towel wasn't there though, but that's just me.

His expression is almost human like.

And THAT, dear friends, is a textbook "baroo". A pity about the blue towel in the back. I find it distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2014 10:04:50 AM
Awww.... adorable!! A little bit of motion blur in the eyes, but golly! That's adorable!
