Try not to fiddle too much with my shots, but couldn't decide if I liked B&W or color. Tried both and liked that one. Little guy woke up after this shot, so the rest weren't the same.

For the dog lovers out there - yes, he is a poor and malnourished dog. I felt really bad for him. This was taken in Parlatuvier, Tobago, and unfortunately, there are tons of dogs like him there. He at least seems content and has a home (of sorts...)

An Amazing shot, all the usual sharp crisp and clean. What I love about this shot though is the size of it. everything is so out of proportion to the dog. Really makes you look into the details of the shot. it also tugs on your heartstrings,10

This is a beautiful commentary piece. Excellent contrast of colors and B/W. He looks like he could really use a meal. Definitely a favorite. 10+++++

great shot. you blew it in the processing. even a quick desaturation makes this much better.

He looks a bit skinny? Or is it the shadows which make him appear that way? He looks sad anyway :( I hope he is looked after well.

A sad but interesting picture. Makes me want to rescue this poor dog. I would like to suggest that you crop the picture in a little to remove some of the non visually interesting information in the top of the picture and just a bit on the right.

Unfortunately, to me, the image is like a snap shot. It may be a statement of a social condition, but the image quality...shadows & composition...aren't there.

I like the desaturation on this.

What a sad photo. This poor dog looks malnourished.
