A real cuttie. A little more light is desired right in the frontal area by the nose. Otherwise, very nice study. Bumping to 7.

kind of a stale sheet with a stale pose. could have been better if these two elements were improved.

Cute pose....but the eyes are over dodged. The lighting seems good here though.

If you're going to enter a slightly out-of-the-box entry, it better be really unique to score well. Something taken outdoors, with a nice background, probably a closeup, would have worked better. Good luck in the future!

I'm not a huge fan of pet shots, but this looks great! Not sure what it is, maybe the focus on the back of the dog, maybe the dark surrounding with good use of lighting. Nice shot!

IMHO, I don't like his head hanging down. It makes the body look way out of proportion with his head.

Cute dog but this challenge was about portraits of people. I gave you a 4 but would have given you a higher rating in a dog challenge.
