From the Crit club

Something really different for the right angle challenge but it is no less applicable and suitable for the challenge. I like that

High on the cute factor for this shot and it does help to carry the image further on the voting scale and getting some feedback and comments. Huge gap on voting scale between people commenting and those just voting.

Processing works well and the B&W suits this. Comp does help the right angle theme as well though it could have been further strengthened to have your line flush with the couch at the bottom.
Some basic drawbacks on this image is the lack of sharpness where it counts. You have a crisp pillow but the dogs are O.O.F fist noticeable on the eyes which is where the cute factor lies..
D.O.F at 3.5 is not that great further not helping to get more in focus. Maybe a bigger F stop number would have helped here and with little light, push the iso up. I realise a 40d does not have that much noise control but this is an image that could even do with some grain.. but it needs to be sharp. (as contradictory as that may seem to some degree :)
some may complain about the folds in the material? In general it makes this scene more homely and natural.. yet for the theme being right angles those curves softened the angle effect for me - especially those in the background.

Keep thinking out of the box as this was a fresh scene in the challenge.

oh in real life it's quite easy to tell them apart... one of them does what she's told and the other....

they both have flowers but one is hidden from view.

The layers are excellent! Is one wearing a flower so they can be told apart?

must be depression

p.s. nicely framed, and even the cookies are rightly oriented.

I bet they want whatever you had for dinner, I know that look. Mine usually make that face sitting up on the ground staring up you and thumping the tails on the floor, though.

I actually didn't see the cookies the first couple times I looked at this image. Overall, there seems to be a slight motion blur that is distracting me, I think.
