What a fine specimen of a dog - I just couldn't resist taking his photo - he was not happy with my presence & I am so glad the gate was high enough to keep him on the other side.

He doesn't look very happy at all this dog, good idea to keep your distance I think. Any way, good capture and nicely framed.

La beauté est dans l'oeil de celui qui regarde. Pour moi, il est bien seul et semble avoir besoin de compagnie quoi que son air soit quelque peu rébarbatif.

Bas je ovaj pas tuzan ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazan pas.
Sve najbolje za vikend.
This dog is just sad ...
A good time recording, sharpness, contrast, beautiful color.
Good content and composition, nice dog shown.
All the best for the weekend.

I'm glad you took his photo, he is a beautiful dog. But it looks like he got caught trying to sneak out judging from his sad look. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

I just can't make my mind up whether he is just looking pensive or weighing up how to take a bite out of the photographer!! Yes, I think the gate was a great benefit for you!
The portrait is sharp and detailed, full of attitude and with the dog looking into the shot.
My warm regards,

Beautiful?? His eyes are bloodshot and his mouth says he's just eaten someone alive. That's why he's so sad looking at you - he's no more hungry... LOL
Hope you don't mind me kidding, Dawn:) Great image, excellently taken.
josepmarin (57593) 2012-12-14 12:33
it is a good capture, in which you have caught the angry look of this nice specimen of boxer, that seems to be defending his property.
The image is very sharp, and you have done a good management of the light and of the colors.
ourania (27542) 2012-12-14 12:35
a very sweet and lovely picture, so sharp and attractive. The gaze of the doggy is captivating. I love your composition. The wooden gate has acquired a marvellous graphic quality, the doggy is well placed off centre and stands out with great depth and naturalness. Lighting and colours are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

seem a very aggressive dog...and look straight to your lens....little bit out of focus...
Noel_Byrne (21682) 2012-12-14 14:04
You captured a perfect momen here, his expression is timeless. In saying that though, without the bark, I always find boxers look quite sad, and this guy does here too. Great composition.
All the best

non mi sembra molto interessato alla foto, anzi, ha lo sguardo un pò contrariato.
Foto molto simpatica con un titolo allegro.

cute shot, good eye :) ... somehow the rivets blend perfectly with the dogs fur...

I like dogs not the aggresive dogs.
Nice portrait of this lovely animal.
I also enjoyed the management of light, chosen pov and composition.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
A very well taken care off picture.
Very well done, thanks.
Have a nice weekend,

Every Animal is by my opinion beautiful,
so also this Dog. The look in your eyes
from this dog steals your heart.
Compostion of the picture is good.
cornejo (28794) 2012-12-15 4:18
Hi Dawn, very good shot of this nice postcard with the dog's face. Very well framed, with sharpness, good light and color. Good and nice job with a funny title, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Good night and good Sunday.
Greetings from Spain.
serp2000 (38467) 2012-12-15 4:21
Amazing portrait of a guard, Dawn! He looks not so friendly with his bloody eyes and the lips. Anyway this is very interesting capture.
ikeharel (53415) 2012-12-15 9:42
You should had been talking to him, dogs understand verbals, Dawn - only an inquisitive look you got.
Nice taken photo, clear and with good light.
i once spoken hebrew to an italian Cocker-Spaniel like mine - and he was enthusiastic with the tone... that's the secret.
Have a nice sunday/weekend.
fabbs99 (16141) 2012-12-15 11:08
So sweet ! I have a dachshund and he is full of energy and yes very very sweet like this doggie.Very well done dear.
abmdsudi (40538) 2012-12-15 21:20
Superb capture, Dawn. Wonderful soulful little grumpy looking Boxer and his lovely detail, coat textures and colours. His eye and the catchlight is brilliantly sharp, a cool, handsome beast - and what a poser. It looks as if he's a great big softie and I can see deep into those eyes. But I love his most doleful expression in this and so distinguished looking! - it's priceless. Wonderful shot, very very well done, Congrats
mirosu (12686) 2012-12-15 23:07
A beautiful dog photo. Smart choice of horizontal frame to accentuate the dog with splendid sharpness. Very nice photo with great color contrast and very good POV choice. Excellent result.
fds (7440) 2012-12-15 23:41

Nard (6970) 2012-12-16 3:55
Nice and funny picture. I like his look a bit sad, wondering what you want. A look saying a lot of things and very well captured.
delpeoples (52767) 2012-12-16 17:17
Ciao cara Dawn
heheheh a face only a mother could love. This is so cute, it instantly made me laugh. He looks like he's trying to talk to you - or at least is modelling for you. A sweet, decisive moment. Adorable. Thanks for sharing and thanks for giving me a laugh.

Ciao Dawn, sure, a very beautiful dog, original portrait, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
corjan3 (2053) 2012-12-17 17:00
Judging by the expression on his face, and his right eye being the focal point,I think he is sizing matters up. Animal lovers, like me, will find this a very cute image. Well presented in very good composition with the diagonal and horizontal strips and the bolts, and him demanding all attention. A very pleasant image indeed. Best wishes.
COSTANTINO (52210) 2012-12-20 4:43

An amazing shot of this dog well framed by the pieces of wood
He looks so sad and serious, almost a human look
And yes he is beautiful !
Have a nice WE and best wishes for 2013
jmdias (52918) 2013-01-09 0:43
curious its sad eyes. I liked the framing where you used well the lines of the gate.
pierrefonds (55398) 2013-01-13 15:49
The door is fraqming well the dog. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the dog. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
