This picture probably won't do very well, score wise, but I like it and have decided not to really worry about what score a picture gets if I like it.

The title is a take off of the Broadway play "Guys and Dolls" - just couldn't resist the little pun for the title! Dogs are supposedly "Man's Best Friend" and, to me, this picture shows this - these guys are taking an evening stoll with their dogs - not a "doll" on their arm!

One of these guys is my husband, the one walking the Cairn Terrier. He was so cranky this day we were in Salida, he didn't even want to walk with me - just the dog. So I was sitting at a table and took this picture opportunity.

I like the background here more than I care for the subject. The friendship isn't really apparent, the two men walking don't seem to be relating to their dogs, each other or the other dogs.

Nice idea, some of the picture is a little blurry though. Good title.

Subject matter meets the challenge well. Too bad images are a bit blurry, but I understand how it is. Very interesting background.

i can't unfortunately see the point... it had been much better if they were walking towards eachother! no sharpness on either of them

I see where you were going with this, but I think the blurred subjects against the sharp background, sort of turns the background into the subject. Maybe a tighter crop and a slower shutter speed, with a little less DOF would help next time.

Although a little blur because of slow shutter speed but a Nice Shot...
