I think this is the best photo I took this month. My brother Steve and his 16 going on 17 year old Dal, Dangerfield (after Rodney) on Christmas Day. Shot with camera on tripod in available roomlight: Low incandescent, candles(my sister in law LOVES candles) and the fire in the Franklin Stove. I had the cable release connected but used the shutter when I took this becasue the Dal finally stopped moving and I forgot to use the release.
Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

I was very disappointed this did not ribbon, but I guess all in all it did very well, for being so non-plastic :-) I was one of your 10's. Fabulous shot, great processing.

I think this is a flat-out fantastic portrait (of man and dog). The fire in the background offers a lot of context and gives the whole image a warm feel.

10 from me.

Nothing can get between a man and his dog, and a great photo to show that!

My only suggestion is that the background seems to be more in focus than the man or dog, which makes me pay more attention to the background.

Wonderful emotion in this portrait. I love how the face of the dog says "stop smothering me!"

Great job capturing the bond between the two of them, and with dogs in general.
