    This is so crisp it is incredible. Thanks for showing us what can be achieved. It gives me inspiration to keep trying.

    I am going to put this in the forum and outtakes as well. In the interest of full disclosure and possibly interesting info, these are photos of my dogs. Both are Rhodesian Ridgebacks. The big guy is Georgie. The little one is actually his great niece, Sheila. Georgie is 8 years old, Sheila is going on 5 months. The big boy is teaching her how to get along. I have been with this breed for about 20 years and Sheila is the fourth one and third girl. They are incredibly easy photo targets and I have hundreds of shots over the years. All of you who have dogs understand this. Those who don’t…well. Thanks for all the comments and kind words. This one was fun!

    Nice topic, good sharpness. Maybe I would have cropped less from the left side and more from right. In my favorites.

    Beautiful, spectacular detail in the dog. The look alone on dog's face is worthy of a win, gonna be tough.

    The eyes have it. Classic demonstration of why good lighting is important, but lighting the eyes is absolutely essential.

My No. 4 in a four way tie for top spot. I'm doing an injustice to three of you but I had to rank them somehow. You have a fine image among some really fine shots in this Challenge.

    Very sharp, and very cute.

Just one thing, I don't like the tight crop, but that's minor, in my faves.

    This entry grabbed me! The color, focus, and lighting are all quite pleasing. You caught a great expression too. The blurred background works well here. In my favs.
