Dog took for long walk. Normally dog too hyperactive to stay still long enough for photograph to be taken of her (Springer Spaniel owners will know exactly what I'm talking about). Dog seeks solace under chair where I captured this beatiful image of her. The eyes came out really well she almost seems to be looking straight through me. Fuji s5000 was used rather than the EOS D-30 which tends to be too soft and promotes red eye in pictures.

Great tight shot. Capturing a moment with a dog is hard! You did it.

Awwwwwww. I LOVE him (or her) !!! I'm wondering if it will get marked down a little because it doesn't have a "people" in it, but it's a great picture nonetheless!

If your title was 'dog-tired' it would reflect how I feel. I'm tired of dogs. Don't think I'll vote low on you becaue you've sent in 'just another' dog picture. There's other things that you have to improve on. First, this challenge is about humans and their pets, and the connection between them. I can't see any connection here, as there's no person in the picture. And it's really hard to show the connection between the photographer himself (you) and the subject (your dog).
Let's have a look at the technical elements. The piece of wood could have been a nice frame for the shot, had you cropped away the carpet below it and the 50px on the right. The direct flash you used caused too bright reflections on the wood, it makes the dog's eyes look weird and the picture has a 'flat' look. There are no interesting shadows which might have created a stronger athmosphere which this shot would definately have profited from. I give you a 1.

I just love dogs! And I really like the way you frame him/her with the wood piece. Did you use a flash? It kind of looks like it, because of the green of the eyes, and the reflections on the wood. If you did, maybe try the shot again with just natural lighting & use a longer exposure w/tripod or rest it on something. I think it would make this good photo an excellent photo. And I think it would look even better in blk/wht. Great job!

good colors, but eyes are a bit dilated.

appealing image, but where are the "people"?
