Love this shot and was one of the ones who gave you a 5.
A beautiful composition with simply amazing colours and tack sharp. Love it.
I love this photo and imo it should have done so much better. I can only think that voters didn't realise what looks like sky is valley. Jen
Wow, I really love this shot and would love it to have won.
Mordi: I know nothing of these cameras, and had to click on the link to see what it is.
Proves the art is in the photographer, not the camera.
papa natas: Ha!!Another superb image taken with a 7 years old little GREAT camera!!This little fellow is cheap in price compared to today's prices. Then again its quality has nothing to be desired from today's standards. There was also a Minolta with the same shape back in the day.It goes to prove that creativity follows no trendy consumerism.Kudos to you, bro!!!
Thank you papa natas. I bought this camera because Panasonic compacts tend to have excellent focus and also because it was made robust to take seaside photos and I love photographing rock pool life and hence spare the Nikon! It also has a better macro feature than the lens on the Nikon which worked well for this close up shot.
barb_s: Congratulations. Color challenges are a challenge in themselves with no real theme - Love the focus on this as well! Nice job
Thanks so much Barb and also for hosting these great challenges.
Robert Kempen: fantastic shot
Thank you Robert
Wow, this is a fabulous shot and I am one of the 5 who gave you a 5! Jen
Beautiful image. Congratulations. Jen
Tan68: I notice the picture was taken a few years ago. I hope your happy puppy is doing well.
Ha ha - I like your options particularly the last one - very clever!
It was taken on a trip to South America. I spotted this little fella in someone's doorway, so grabbed a couple of shots. So, not my dog.
Great shot Megan, I gave this a 5. Jen
bladerunner6: This is an absolutely fabulous shot. It is really a combination of a pet portrait and an action shot. And it definitely creates an emotional response. I showed it to my wife and she understood instantly why it won this challenge.
I am also impressed that you take great photos with any camera. And that you have way more challenge entries than postings. These things show that you are a great photographer that is serious about their craft.
Kudos to you in every way!
Thank you so much bladerunner6. Now I am embarrassed because this was more a lucky shot than anything else and also luckily fitted in with this challenge. (If you only knew the rubbish I also take - gulp!)
Windancer: Great shot........
Thank you Windancer.
Thank you papa, he was so cute and I was a bit lucky with this yawn.
This is such an incredibly good shot in every way and more deserving in every way. Jen
