Shot in our backyard. I like the wheel barrow as it compliments Kona's color and it's interesting. PP raw conversion, warming filter, borders, resize, save for web. Enjoy, she is a very energetic dog, and I believe this image captures that in her facial expression.

I can't believe I didn't make a comment on this one. I was one of your nine 10's, and this makes my heart hurt it is so unbelievably beautiful and soul stirring!

This is really good to look at for awhile. I know these dogs feature in many great pictures, but I find the lighting and colour and pose and definition and composition all sitting in a very nice place here.

That goofy expression combined with the wagon or whatever it is in the backs makes this such a fine photo.

This was in my top 3 picks for the challenge. I really loved the tone on tone colours and the candid feel of the capture. Beautiful shot.

Very good shot of the Wiemer, but you have to much background and it is too distracting. Still, nice color and lighting on the dog.

8 - Nice outdoor light to show off the coat well, which I imagine is difficult to photograph. Like the wagon element. A little clean and that ear not chopped/the rabbit watcher just a fraction further in the frame, make this even better in my opinion. Up to 8 from 7.

I like the head turn implied by the ears, and the wagon makes a nice background without being distracting. Tones are nice; I would dodge the catchlights a bit more for emphasis.

Very successful use of atonal qualities in the background. The intensity in the eyes is very well captured.

Beautiful piece!! Very well done!

I like the fact that the ear is choped off, it gives a real movement feeling. Her/his ears scream softness and wanting to be rubbed. The background only adds to this great colour of the dog. 10 straight across the board
