This was a wonderful holiday in 2007.
We visited a little beach in Gozo.
There was a dog with his owner and they were swimming together.
l thought sometimes the dog is posing for me on the top of the rock... he was so cute and funny...
(l have more pics about them in my Malta photos.)

I like this photo. It's bright and eye-catching and the dog looks proud and magnificent, like it is aware of its striking position. I like that you also included its owner nearby. It's a well composed picture where the rocks in the foreground give us an idea how far from the beach the dog was. The photo is also very well exposed with beautiful colours.

Good evening Agnes,
Beautiful moment collected as the fit dog stood and posed on the rock, looking around to make sure his master is safely swimming around there.
Fine water texture, color and clear view at the whole image.
One suggestion though: i'd allocate less space for the "sky" on photo.
Cheers for a nice picture.

What a fun shot!
The posing dog looks like a proud statue, maybe just a little disappointed that its owner is not watching!
The water looks divine! It has amazing clarity and suggestion of movement. Who wouldn't want to be swimming there!!
You have created a good sense of depth by anchoring the f/g.
The shot would still be fine if you cropped some of the sky and the r/h side to put the dog nicely on the thirds line.
Have a great day,

Very funny and charming scene that you have captured here. The dog poses here like a model, I had actually to look twice to be sure that it is not a bronze statue.
Nice framing, putting the dog center stage.
have a great week

You were fortunate to come upon this scene, and certainly you composed and shot a first rate photo. From the thumbnail I thought it the dog on the rocks was a bronze statue, alas it is the real thing.

Looking out for sharks?! I like the way the dog is posed. Awesome capture and the water look invitingly warm. Good lighting and sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Excellent arrangement with interesting content. Superb snapshot, I do not think that the dog was waiting long in this perfect pose. The light is superb.
Very well done.

Il semble vraiment dans son élément ce chien magnifique qui semble prendre parfaitement la pose pour la photo.Le cadrage vertical donne une belle profondeur à la composition.

Beautiful blue on your photo, good Fg and original view with this dog on the rock as a statue ...

At first I thought it was a statue purposely built for some ancient rescue perhaps? Then I noticed it was a real dog! Love the turquoise cyan colour of the Mediterranean Sea here. Good sharpness & saturation. The little wave in the fg adds depth. Tfs!

Un vrai plaisir de nager avec son chien, je le fait aussi avec ma Jessie :-)
Vraiment une belle scène et le beau chien qui prend la pose , l'on dirait une statue sur le rocher :-), sublime couleurs et transparence de l'eau

I think that the coast in the distance features in the photo Stephen (snunney) posted yesterday, I commented on it a few minutes ago:) Your picture is very delightful and amusing. The natural scenery is superb and you've captured it with superb clarity and colour definition. The texture and freshness of the water is most attractive. The dog looks like a statue on a monument, the swimmer, in a supporting role, looks quite surprised. The light is splendid. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
