I am not sure what category this belongs in, but these Arctic sled dogs are having a romantic dinner for two. The appetizer is frozen seal meat, main course is frozen seal meat and of course for dessert a little frozen seal meat. The Arctic comes alive this time of the year. The sun is shining brightly now, reflecting of the beautiful bright clean white snow...except for the bit of yellow pee spots around these dogs. :-) Tourists will be arriving soon.

I can't believe how much they were given and that they haven't eaten the entire thing already! Dogs around here get chunks about 3" cubed and bolt it down in mid-air as it is thrown to them!
For composition, I wonder if it would look a bit more vibrant with some of the top cropped off - imagine the dog's eyes on a line of the upper third through the photo, that would make it quite a long shot, maybe not to everyone's taste. Then, I might also suggest that the chain on the left side get photo-chopped out? Then print it up, get a little construction paper backing and get ready for the tourists! You said you needed a job, get out there and print up some notes or small photos, sell for $5 each, get a friendly Inuk to sell them and give them some of the profit... Who needs a dayjob!

Very lovely, these dogs. Good sharpness. Of course without chain it's nice also but not the true reality !
Weel seen Vera.

Superb, Vera. These are I think Siberian huskies, the Dog Of The North, truly beautiful canines. Great contrasts in animals, black and 'white'. Soft distant snowscape and crisp foreground. Can't think how to improve it. A classic scene, very well done.
