Thank you for the wonderful comments. I am happy this was well received.

I have had this idea in mind for some time but never got around to doing it. This challenge was the perfect opportunity to get it done, although I only had two days to do it and no archival images to work with. The dogs are best friends but impossible to photograph together, so shot those separately. I did not have a wine bottle that worked so emptied a vinegar bottle and dripped with wax. Two cans of Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and Meatballs., a lot of curves adjustments to get lighting somewhat realistic. A fun project.

Thanks again.

Congrats on the Blue! Great composition and straight out of that great scene from Lady and the Tramp. Really great how you have both dogs slurping at the noodle and I really love how much they both emote - especially the big puppy dog eyes on your Lady as she looks up at Tramp. Wonderful work in putting it all together!

Nothing below a 5 vote! Yay!

At least the trolls didn't hit this one! Good for you!

This was one of my favorites of the challenge... but who wouldn't love this?!

So adorable and intimate.

The ONLY nitpick I could say is here is the noodle coming out of the front of dark dog's mouth. I think it would have at least a shadow and probably some fur also on the top.

But, golly! What a winner!

Congratulations, Mary Ann!!

This is so professional, I mean to think that you didnít even photograph the dogs together, you would never know. This is definitely one for 1x also!

And I didnít even notice that you didnít have a wine bottle who doesnít have a wine bottle LOL, just joking.

Gasp!!! This so far has been an amazing challenge... with some "top of the heap" photography, but this! I have no words for how much I love this! It needs to be in a museum. And it most certainly needs to win a blue ribbon here! Seriously. So, the 10 and the new favorite you just got??? That would be me!
