6 - Nice scene with the lavender and outdoors. Wish Olza was sharper and the flea collar(?) either removed for shot or the angle different to minimize it. A little more height in frame may have also given this extra in my opinion. The purple of the lavender is nice and perhaps potential there to 'use' it more, but the similar brown tone middle left background, does help accentuate Olza's eyes, so perhaps using that more may have also given this extra.

Adorable lab! I like this composition and focus; just off-center enough to avoid being too static. The catchlights in the dog's eyes are good and the overall exposure is as well. Only suggestion would be to sharpen it just a little bit to pull out a little more detail.

beautiful lab, i have a chocolate, and this really does it for me. don't their eyes just make you melt? great shot. it's always hard in direct sunlight to get a black lab's eyes exposed due to the risk of getting them lost in that black coat of theirs, but you did a great job here. 7!
