Grand Jury Winner

"A head on shot- with the tongue, ears, and eyes all doing their thing Its what we see when a dog is at their best , out in a field , at play, living the good life. This head on , centered shot works well - really puling in the viewer, for a long look at the fun loving dog enjoying life. Great color, and facial details- SUPERB WORK !!" - Tom Guffey

"Anyone who has ever owned a dog, has often seen this , as our best friend just wants a better look at what's up, on the counter or the dinner table . The paws pull you in, you focus on the nose and then see the eyes focused on what about to be picked off the table, The image tells a story that all dog owners have seen. . Creative comp, great color and details." - Tom Guffey
