I love this one. It was my pick for the winner. Great job!

I like this shot too. Cant help thinking I would like to see it with a different color background, slightly off white or grey maybe, you had a great result but maybe the brightness of the white was a bit offputting?

Well executed shot. This got one of my highest scores.

Hehe, now I have that Beatles song in my head. Great shot.. the glasses are the best perfect touch.

7 - Doesn't look too happy. Mainly the reflection in the glasses and the whie 'something' on the 'case'. Variation in lighting may have given this a little more depth, but this may be exactly what you were aiming for.

i love this shot, looks like you got a dog who really likes treats enough to do anything too : )
really great!

Nice setup and capture. i would guess that this image could do real well on a stock site. Good job.
12/15/2006 04:21:16 PM
Well done. Fabulous expression behind those serious glasses.
12/15/2006 01:41:39 PM
Oh, I hope he got LOTS of treats for this modeling shoot :) How ADORABLE!!! I'm in awe that he sat there calmly while wearing glasses. What a DOG! My first 10 in this challenge!

I'll bet you could make a mint off of this with stock photography! Awesome shot -- one of my favorites this time, for sure! - 10
12/13/2006 09:10:20 PM
what a great idea ... only thing that bugs me is the glare in his glasses .. otherwise it's very well done ...
12/13/2006 07:22:25 PM
Ha, cute!!
12/13/2006 02:51:58 PM
I just love this shot. Its refreshing to see a shot like this. I was starting to get bored of so many pet snapshots. My #1 pick. -10

Good dog! How did you keep the suit and tie on???
12/13/2006 01:15:12 PM
I hear the Beatles song "It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.." when I view this photo portrait:-) Very clever and cute idea that is well executed. Love the attention to detail you present here from the dog dressed in a suit with a tie to the briefcase with the Business section of the newspaper sticking out of it. Lighting is wonderful. There is only one little nit and that is the reflection off of the glasses on the left hand side. It prevents the viewer from seeing both of those 'tired' eyes of the dog - and that eye expression is an important part of the composition of the photo.

Nice pic...obedient dog!
12/13/2006 12:50:41 PM
VERY good photo. Normally I'm not into the whole dog dressed like a human bit, but this works. The only thing I can say, critique wise, would be, that I wish you would have used the Advanced Editing part of this challenge, to take away the glare on the glasses. Other than that, good job!

LOL how cute. You did a great job setting this up. Little light on the far lens, but this is a good entry. Hope you do well. Love you model.
