The concept is dead-on...but I think some additional time should have been put into setting up the shot. 6 for the idea.

why is the meat blurred while the cloth is so very visible - this detracts from the title idea

The focus seems too soft - the dog seems blurred as well as the food on the plate.

ok - this is going to sound really negative, but I hope what I have to say will be taken in a constructive manner.

This image has the feel of a snap. the lighting is ... well frankly attrocious, there are unfortunate shadows behind the dog.

The fork is washed out in the highlights and feels out of focus.

The diagonal line of the table edge really just cuts the image in half for no good effect.

On the bright side theres a hell of a lot to improve on here, you really can learn a lot from analysing the negatives.

I can see how if you knew and loved the dog, those eyes would definitely convey the emotion of hope for an illicit scrap. In terms of the photo though, I would score it more highly with a different composition, possibly from anothr angle or with more context in the photo. I would like it better with sharper focus and greater DOF. The dog's face would be more expressive, IMO, if it were lighter and if I could see the eyes more clearly defined. The hope is in the eyes. Accentuating that would give more emotional punch, I think.

This shot is good for the theme. But it lacks on technical aspects. The light, scene, focus and exposure are very poor. Increse the though time of a shot next time, thinking about it.

It is a good idea, just not executed as well as it could have been. I would suggest a tighter crop..

This photograph could have really benefitted from a sharper focus and better lighting. A source from the viewers left of the dog would have done wonders.

cute: out-of-focus-dog. (Lab+Golden Retriever mix? Is she about two?), but the meat looks like someone's liver ripped out of their body. I'd like better lighting and a better angle.

the use of flash killed this shot... could have got a better shot without flash, using a smaller aperture 5-6 i guess and focussing on the nose of the dog to keep the dog and meat both farily in focus...

Table cloth detracts, but the dog's face is great...
