Our Olde English Bulldogge, Nanook


Whoa! A decisive personal best for me. Clearly my campaign of kissing babies and greasing palms is finally paying off! Really glad my wife convinced me to enter this one.

nice photo. The angle expresses the submissive relationship, and adulation from the dog. Nice bit of back lighting around the front of the snout. Dof is nice and the details are nice and rich. Conceptually, the symbolism of dark clouds and dark-faced man contrasts all of the good feelings I get. I'm suspicious of this seemingly happy relationship. I think this master has not been so nice, and the dog is waiting for a good opportunity to exact revenge.

Nice angle and DOF, lovely dog! Good focus on him/her, I like the title too; nice idea, the faithful friend sitting happily at its owner's feet.

Nicely done, I completely buy the title in relation to the photo. The perspective of the photo works well to convey the sense that this dog IS a protector.

Like the POV; make the image stand out. Also different is choosing the shallow DOF; keeps the viewer focused on the beast, adds some "mystery" to the master, or makes the master secondary. Makes me take a longer look.
