Could have scored higher, but 6.13 isn't a bad score... Very nice image!

7 - Nice portrait. Wish the dog were in focus too.

I like your composition: a beautiful woman, her best friend (?), and a comfortable spot to relax and enjoy the day. Good work!

Nice shot - natural, casual and easy feeling - I like that it's not pretentious, just a nice moment - 10 from me

This photo would be exquisite without the pooch! Nothing at all against doggies, but the four legged friend just doesn't match her beauty in this shot!! I love her expression! 8

This is, actually, a pretty portrait. I wish it was just a little bit off-center.

Nice...like the casual look...the dog is maybe not needed in the image.

Nicely done. This looks like the cover of Better Homes and Garden. It's a little light and the colors are a little pale but this is a good composition.

this is beautiful...something like you would see in a weekend magazine...perfect, have to give this a 10

very good,like the smile...

why does that name sound familiar to me...and she looks familiar as well...but I can't place her...hmm, well, I'll tell you, the very first thing I thought when I saw this is that it belongs in a magazine...Oprah's mag or Martha Stewart's perhaps...or Better Homes and Gardens...whichever mag is may be, this certainly has that feel to it...as though I'm being brought into a celebrity's home, her lifestyle, but only to peek...very nicely done.

Nice composition. The dog seems a little out of focus. I would prefer him to be in focus. 7.

Wow, this is a very nice portrait. Too bad the dog didn't look a little more relaxed as the female subject does but I know how hard it is to control animals. But the expression on the subject is great, the colors and composition add to it... I just cannot find anything but a few minor nit-picks with this. Great!!

Nice, soft, light shot. Love the expression and mood. Great dog!! Like the soft background. 10

What wonderful light!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 06:10:01 PM
Nice. I think a crop to just above the tree line would halp to really have the subject in center stage.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 05:29:43 PM
WOW, this looks like on of those portraits that photographers hang on the big canvases in the mall to advertise their business. I usually just stand and marvel at them. Like I'm doing with this one.

The lighthing is perfect, the blurred background is perfect, the facial expressions (woman & dog) couldn't be better.

I'm not voting, but this would be a 12 if I could vote that high.

Nice shot. Both subjects are captured well in a good scene overall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This looks like a magazine ad for something feminine or girly. I like it a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 11:22:11 AM
very nice pose. i think a little smaller depth of field would help me focus on Rebecca and Riggs
10/01/2006 12:25:46 AM
Wow! Just like a magazine shot. Very impressive.

Reminds me of a book cover (or inside flap).
Very nice!
