and you still got two "10"s - not bad!

as a MACRO shot: I think the composition is nice, but a bit centered. The DOF is pretty good, a bit more would have gotten the nose nice and crisp too. Lighting seems a bit dark (but then again, I can't seem to get my monitor calibrated right)

Cute dog, for sure

Id give it a 7....instead of the 2 I gave you...you understand why :)

Side note...I bowl in Ajax every week...Plaza, on Harwood :) small world

I think I will enter a wrong shot once, I envy you for the amount of comments. :-)

I'm guessing this was supposed to be for the previous Macro challenge. If it was in the Macro challenge, I'd give it 5/6.

I love the photo - precious pup, but how does it fit technology?
8 for the actual photo - 0 for fitting challange: 4 average
11/24/2002 12:33:00 PM
Hmmm.. I'm looking for something to do with Technology, and failing miserably. Maybe if I could see his microchip... lhall
11/24/2002 10:54:00 AM
how is this technology? okay macro though
11/23/2002 03:26:00 PM
Don't you read the titles of the challenges ?
11/23/2002 03:07:00 AM
great lookin dog; I missed the technology here tho...
11/22/2002 07:26:00 PM
11/21/2002 11:57:00 PM
please tell me this was taken by a child....Cute dog.
11/21/2002 12:32:00 PM
I've been trying to decide how this dog represents technology, but I'm at a complete lose. If you'd care to enlighten me, I'd gladly reconsider your score ~Myqyl ~

UPDATED COMMENT : After much consideration, I've decided this does meet the challenge... Beagles are, afterall, work dogs... Tacking on the points I initially took off... Shot would have worked batter for me without the right side...
11/21/2002 12:31:00 PM
Maybe the wrong challenge?
11/21/2002 10:26:00 AM
Ok were does this fit into the catagory. Nice closeness, but the challenge was for Technology. Was your buddy a by product of a test tube or some other realm of technology???
11/21/2002 12:35:00 AM
11/20/2002 10:47:00 PM
Hey my dog's name is buddy! Well I guess its alright cause mines a chihuahua. :) byetko.
11/20/2002 10:15:00 PM
Cute shot...but what does this have to do with the challange?
11/20/2002 08:47:00 PM
Robo Dog? This must have been meant for the macro challenge. That's too bad.
11/20/2002 05:39:00 PM
You already know you are asking for it with a "cute puppy" shot. You missed your challenge by one week. And it is a shame because it is a great pic and he is oh soooo cute. Are the sad eyes supposed to beg us for higher scores? He really is cute but I really can't see where you have meet the challenge THIS WEEK. Please tell me if I'm wrong. Do you mean the technology of his ability to smell? That just came to me. Maybe......maybe not..... Still good shot. PTL Yes the technology of the Beagle's nose deserves 2 more points. Here's a 7.
11/20/2002 04:06:00 PM
I'll bet you're getting alot of "where's the technology" comments! Very brave to submit this, is it a mechanical dog? While it's a very good photo, the challenge aspect merits the most points, for me. 3 Swash
11/20/2002 02:33:00 PM
Perhaps I missed the meaning of this photo, but how is "buddy" your beagle in any way related to the topic of technology?
11/20/2002 02:03:00 PM
Wonderful dog, and good shot. I usually don't get too hung up on meeting the challenge, but with my furtherest stretch of the imagination, I can not possibly see how this fits into the technology challenge. Macro, yes. karmat
11/20/2002 12:13:00 AM
Pretty eyes. I'm going to have to think on this a bit to find the technology.
11/19/2002 10:47:00 PM
And he's technology....how?
11/19/2002 10:43:00 PM
Very cute dog, but doesn't fit challenge.
11/19/2002 10:28:00 PM
Probably meant for the "close up" challenge. There, a 6. Here, a 4.

Come on, stick to the challenge! -1-
11/19/2002 08:38:00 PM
Ok, I'm willing to accept I might have missed something, but isn't this just a dog? Ahh, no I get it. It's a robot dog! Cool...
11/19/2002 06:58:00 PM
I guess this was meant to be in the macro challenge? Shame you missed the deadline - cute dog : )
11/19/2002 05:50:00 PM
What technology is this?
11/19/2002 04:18:00 PM
What exactly does this have to do with technology?
11/19/2002 01:01:00 PM
Nice photo, but this is the technology challenge.
11/19/2002 11:18:00 AM
get an AIBO
11/19/2002 09:57:00 AM
Is this a robot?

11/19/2002 04:31:00 AM
I'm not sure if you've entered the right competition. Maybe this shot was for last week's competition entitled "Macro". On the whole, a good macro shot. A slightly deeper DOF, will probably have Buddy's nose in focus. Also, I think it's a little too tight a crop. For the Macro competition, I'll give you 7. For this week's competition, sorry buddy, 4.
11/19/2002 01:13:00 AM
there must be some connection to technology here, but it's a reach. But the dog is cute so I rate it a 7
11/18/2002 11:37:00 PM
technology? Is the dog genetically engineered?
11/18/2002 11:16:00 PM
And this is technology... how?
11/18/2002 10:00:00 PM
????????????? were you late for the macro challenge? 1 marbo
11/18/2002 09:58:00 PM
Robo dog?
11/18/2002 09:29:00 PM
11/18/2002 09:15:00 PM
I knew someone would work in a pet picture.
11/18/2002 07:38:00 PM
Dosen't seem to fit the challenge, but a very cute beagle none the less!
11/18/2002 06:55:00 PM
Technology?? Nice dog however.
11/18/2002 05:36:00 PM
Had to take major points off. This has nothing to do with technology, does it! Cute shot of a pretty dog though.
11/18/2002 05:03:00 PM
Technology????? Did you submit the wrong photo by mistake or is this a picture of a genetically engineered dog?
11/18/2002 04:41:00 PM
Come on, for Christ's sake this is a TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE. It's an OK picture of a dog, but can't we skip a week?
11/18/2002 03:49:00 PM
I'm failing to see the technology here.
11/18/2002 02:29:00 PM
I'm not generally going to mark someone down too much for being weak on meeting the challenge, but huh?? How in the world is this technology? Or were you just being funny? Sorry, I have to give you a 2. With the blurry nose it woulda been a 4 if the challenge was "Pets". kathleenm
11/18/2002 02:05:00 PM
Where's the technology?
11/18/2002 01:57:00 PM
Technology ????????
11/18/2002 01:27:00 PM
Somehow I knew someone would find an excuse to feature a shot of their dog for this challenge... but I don't even understand the excuse here. What relevance does this have to the challenge???
11/18/2002 10:16:00 AM
11/18/2002 10:12:00 AM
Very cute dog picture. Nothing at all to do with this week's challenge.
11/18/2002 10:05:00 AM
It would be nice to see the whiskers more in focus
11/18/2002 07:37:00 AM
That is not technology.
11/18/2002 06:15:00 AM
Very nice picture of your dog, but I'm at a total loss as to how this relates to the theme - technology. Maybe he is a cyborg?
11/18/2002 01:35:00 AM
wrong topic??
11/18/2002 12:50:00 AM
cute dog... i don't understand how this photo shows technology though.. - setzler
11/18/2002 12:24:00 AM
I am guessing this is some sort of robot dog? :oP
