Thank you for all your great comments.

This is my 2 year old lab Noah. He is a 'demo' dog for the organization Canines with a Cause and trained to do all sorts of tasks such as picking up items that fall (dime, wallet, keys, papers, pens...) and bring them to your hand, bring the phone on command, open/close doors, press automatic access buttons, pull socks off, even flush the toilet! Needless to say, asking him to stay still while I took this picture was a piece of cake for him.

...and yes. He did get a BIG treat afterwads! and a big hug too. ;-)

Hope you gave him a good treat! I must have missed this while voting.

I'm not like most voters on DPC. I'm a sucker for good pet photos. I very much praise your dog for being such a good model. Poor guy, I hope his/her eyes didn't get stuck cross eyed during this photo shoot. LOL The dog definately steels the show from the subject of the challenge, but I don't care. The lighting helps draw it out better. A little dark at the bottom. I may have cropped off more at the bottom rather than trying to lighten the whole picture. 10 regardless

What a great dog! I like his expression and stillness with that apple on his head...good contrast also between his black coat and the apple.

Fun - how come this labrador isn't eating it??? Mine would have! Love the framing and the lighting. Know how difficult it ias to get a good pic of a black dog. Apple - great focus and sharp

Lol, that expression is priceless. I gave it a 7 despite the technical problems in this particular shot as this photo made me smile. Could use a contrast boost though and some more light from beneath to bring out some detail in the dogs fur but good job.

What a sweetheart! Great model. He looks like he's focused on it. Good highlights in the eyes, and I know how hard it is to photograph a black dog. Nice background, too,...like how you graduated the color.
