This is my mom's dog Tessa, who wasn't cooperative at all, this is one of the few I was able to get.

Adjusted levels, shadows/highlights adjustment, selected the eyes and adjusted the brightness and cloned out a reflection of a reflector, cloned out a couple small brown leaves in the grass, usm, crop, border, save for web.

I miss my Eskie. He's been gone for 7 1/2 years, but darn he was a nice dog.

This is a great shot that just brings out all that is an American Eskimo, always looking happy (or at least until they get old and decrepit).

Can't do much better in portraying "white" than this. technically wonderful. Composition a bit blah, might be helped by backing off a tad and getting a bit more dog shape, I donno. Stron entry.

What a perfect face! I'd say purrfect, but I'd be off by a species. How about peruffffect? Either way, excellent shot. Lacking that pop zing wow, but I still give it a 9. Good luck in the challenge!

I like this shot. Shows some of the charater of the dog.

What a cute smile... :) I really like the way that you have cropped this shot. Like how the fur just fills up the entire bottom of the frame and then just a little green to show her off. Great focus and lighting. Hope you do well. (10)
