The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in it's journey through the heavens.

Hi Sabyasachi. Wonderful portrait of both the boy and his dog. Lovely warm colours and dramatic lighting. The picture is filled with warmth and affection.I like the blue shirt which contrast beautifully against the warmer tones. Excellent sharpness. Regards and best wishes for 2007. Klaudio.

As someone who loves dogs, this is one of the best on this theme I have seen. They look like the best of friends, so close they are to each other. Th title and note - couldnt have been better.

Beautiful and tender scene of this happy child with his dog. His glance is very expressive, your photo catches perfectly the whole feeling of this moment, and the happiness of both.
I love the dogs, I also have one, and this type of photos are of great beauty, beside showing the human quality in the love to the animals.
Thanks for share it.
Happy New Year, my friend.

greatly captured lovely shot in a very well chosen vertical format. The light is fantastic and the colours are very nice and well saturated. As a dog lover, I like it a lot and what is incredible some days ago, I took a similar shot with the same posture, to my daughter and my "bear".
Tfs and best wishes!

About this one, this is really charming and touching, this little kid and og in perfect harmony. The expression on the kids face and dog are priceless. I also like the colourful clothes of the kid giving some nice strong colours to the photo and the light on the dog's face.

Unless...you get near his food. Maybe not every time, but when he is hungry, a growl will rise up. What do I mean, we are all grumpy...we have bad days and times where our mind is overwhelmed. We see the death that life can create and the beauty that death provides. In these things is the great contradiction of humankind...living. See, life is pain...without pain we would not know what feeling good is really about. What makes a dog a great friend is forgiveness. When you have a bad day and you are one pet shy...When he can't quite hold it till you get home...When he jumps out of excitement when friends show up at your house...
AND YOU YELL
he forgives you.
Forgiveness is all about friendship.
I like the photo! 8?}
Angshu (56462) 2007-01-04 22:57
Wonderful portrait Sabyasachi showing the bond of love very well. Lovely close shot with crop emphasizing the facial features very well, especially the hint of a smile on his face

Hi Sabyasachi !!!
The mood and the "connection" you captured here is outstanding.
Technically as always perfect.
Have a nice weekend
plimrn (21344) 2007-01-06 8:17
The contentment mirrored on both faces makes the shot really special. Your note is true as well; dogs are such good friends that dog owners live longer than those without that loving companion.
Wishing you health, Love & joy in the New Year,
Dragonheart (8414) 2007-01-07 9:02

pari_ali (433) 2007-01-27 5:43
What shines through most is the sheer love the boy feels and the joy emanating from him. A beautiful picture in everyway.
inuit66 (663) 2007-02-04 7:26
Hi Sabyasachi. This is an amazing shot and even if you had not made a note the same story would have been told. That's what I really like in this one. Only one thing to say about the technique, perfect. I wonder how you have got everything but the boy and the dog all black? Nice frame. From Denmark a great smile at this beautiful photo, greeting Jens.
