I took this pic for Valentine's Day. I just love this shot of Tiko, my husband's dog. (really both our dogs, but his like Pooh is "mine")

I am thinking of holding on to this image for a juried show in May. I would like some honest comments. As Julie found out, what judges look for are not necessarily what photographers like.

Thanks in advance!



ps. Tiko is not a white american eskimo, but a light cream one, so the white balance is not off.

Please tell me the show - is it PPA or some other competition?
I would love to comment but I would like to know your judges first.

Hi Peggy Sue, it is a local art/photography show.

Here is a link to last year's show, this year's is not up yet. http://www.somerscultural.com/photoshow.html

This will be my first foray in to competition, so I figured I would start to collect photos for entries and go through what I consider the best, then run them by the kind folks here.

There is an image of her on your website that I believe would have a better chance of not only entering but winning something. It is the white on white profile of her. It is a bit more art like. The image you have presented here is great for the owner (LOL - you ) which is probably why you like it.

This show want to sell or they would not take a commission from sold images. Just somewhat what your competittion is where you are entering a division of portraits. As a PPA judge I would critique this portrait differently. Thinking like the judge for this show is trying to understand where they are coming from. The art world of judging is different than people judging strickly photography.

Good luck - hope you win!!

YES!! This is stunning. If you need to crop, take it off the bottom.

Hey PJ,

I agree with Peggy. The second shot is really quite subtle and beautiful.

I agree with the others, I think the white one would really stand out for competition.
