Great shot all the way around.

Just checking out your profile and now i'm wondering why i only gave this shot a seven. It is so full of emotion. Really nice shot and should have placed higher.

Something's wrong with the majority of the voting public here.. This one had to be a winner IMO.
Cheers!

I can't believe you did not place higher! Don't get me wrong 27th is great, but the picture deserved to be in the top 10. I was hoping you would get a ribbon. Not only is you composition better then many that place higher, but you lighting is much, much better.

They say that pets and owners start to look alike after awhile, I never believe dit until now. I just hope I don't look like my parrot (then again, he's green, I have olive skin, he ha a rather large beak, and I've heard that my nose is a little on the big side...uh-oh). Anyway, your photo really made me smile. Very cute.

Excellent job matching the expression in the eyes. I don't usually care much for human / pet photos, but I like this one.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 03:46:36 AM
I love this pic!!
Seems that´s true when the people says that the mascots choose those humans that are similar to them. (;-P)
Just kidding. The guy on the left has his nose a little bit out of focus.

A wonderful photograph of bonded best friends. Technically great, terrific for the emotional factor. A 10! If this isn't your dog (hope it is a self portrait), it should be, you two look alike, especially the eyes! (And ears.) Very well done for the best friend challenge!

MAN'S BEST FRIEND..... Where's Ernie's glasses *S* Love the angle your both looking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2005 01:11:51 PM
Good picture, the dogs nose could have been in better focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2005 08:57:55 AM
Lots of pet pics here, the expressions set this one apart. Might be fun to lose the glasses and go with a brown shirt instead of the green. Nice job.

Great photo i couldn't help but laugh. So what they say is true that pets look like their owners?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2005 12:49:46 AM
cute pic, but:
1) the lighting seems a bit harsh; we lose details of ernie's eyes
2) ernie's nose is out of focus
3) not sure, but reckon you need eye contact with lens.

well posed shot though.

I love this shot. This is outstanding! Great lighting and wonderful expressions! 9

This caught my "eye". Well the eyes have it ! Shame the dog is not in sharp focus and the reflections in the eyes are there. But that's a tough one to totally eliminate. The expressions here set it apart from all the other "dog" ones. Good luck with it !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 09:22:01 PM
that thing about how pets look like their owners.... eeerie... good composition..

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 08:28:18 PM
hah, great picture, if only that friend (dog) would have stayed still for the photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 08:01:49 PM
Like the simplicity and conciseness of this photo. Good, rich color. What a little sweetheart the dog is!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 04:49:56 PM
This is a good picture! You really look like your dog, you know???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2005 12:16:27 PM
Nice humoristic shot - you captured the dog and master resemblance that some say exists.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great expressions. The focus looks slightly soft on Ernie's eyes and nose. Other than that very nice.
