You and BradP are going to force me to keep a generic congratulations note handy for copy and pasting: "Congrats on yet another incredible photo of ______. Keep up the great work, but take a vacation once in a while to give the mere mortals a chance." ;-)

"There is only 1 dog- dachies" - Ditto that comment. I have 4. Very cute shot!

There is only 1 dog- dachies - unbelievable shot. Unfortunately we can't have pets in our rented house at present so we will have to enjoy photographs of dachsunds instead! Wonderful work, Max

Congrats John ~ Your little dog Dash has quite the mischevious air about him!

11/15/2004 03:54:34 AM
I'm not much of an animal person, I must admit, but this is cute. I think the big head small body look works really well. Congrats on yer another ribbon.

Congartulations!
I realy like it, and went straight into my favorites.(while voting)
It also placed at the position I wanted it :-) Normaly my picks for ribbons don't score so well.
My number 1 pick did a lot worse...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2004 01:27:35 AM
This is such an amazing shot!

You are lucky to have such a cooperative dog. My dog is deathly afraid of the camera :(

Your dog is adorable! Congratulations on a well-deserved ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2004 12:19:53 AM
Smokeditor: congrats on your red. This little not only wins ribbons but hearts as well. A great character study.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2004 12:08:12 AM
Chalk up another one for John.
Well Done and congrats!
Getting to like that 20D huh?

How can we argue with those eyes!? Beautifully captured expression. The dog is really "communicating" with the camera. Negative space and cropping is perfect for this shot imo. Focus on eyes rather than nose well executed. 9. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2004 07:57:46 PM
Simply wonderful. I absolutely love the expression on her face. Framed perfectly. 10 in my book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2004 06:48:03 PM
Yup - this is the kind of calendar shot that typifies the genre. Not my kind of calendar, mind!

Very well shot and excellently modelled - a bit too low & tight in the frame though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2004 12:51:14 PM
Perfect pose, a well trained dog. Good focussing, I can almose see your reflection in the eyes. Wonderful lighting, lovely colour, a six from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2004 08:25:44 PM
so sweet....
I love this shot.
You ever heard this saying? "Never work with kids or animals. If you do, charge triple"
I did a job for a "Doggy Day Spa" (some people have too much money) and I can verify the latter "Charge triple if you work with animals!"

Kids on the other hand, no problem :)

Anyways, I ramble sometimes. This is a very good shot. nuff said.

What a wonderful expression!!! Great capture.. doubt any of my cats would do that...

10 - Nice shot. Beautiful dog. I need to get a dog. I'm more of a Basset Hound fan though.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this ribbon. It isn't just another dog/pet shot by a long shot! I just love the angle and perspective giving him his wonderfully soulful appearance. Perfection in a studio shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2004 03:49:57 PM
Aha? how is this any different from... lets say... September Dachshund? The title says a month name, but the picture doesnt. Otherways a verry good shot.

Cute critter

Funny, lovely, cheerful. What else can I say. Fantastic shot. 10+

Great portrait of the dog!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2004 11:44:30 PM
Perfect focus and color. Having the white background really brings out the dog. And having his body back behind just emphasizes his size and shape. Also the lighting is excellent. One of my top picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2004 10:23:23 PM
this is a great dog shot, I love the whiskers and the eyes. Very cute.

11/08/2004 05:46:45 PM
Awwww. .. . I love him/her!! Dachsund's are the MOST loveable precious dogs! I could definitely see this on a dog calendar.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2004 04:42:37 PM
Also a typical and high-quality calendar image. So 10 for the challenge, but i wouldn't buy the calendar personally.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2004 01:14:29 PM
What was that rule again? Vote all pet photo's down except if they are exceptional?
10++

Great photo of your dog (I mean that - it's awesome) but a bit of a stretch challenge-wise.
