FRAMES: Photo Challenge #48: Pets: Stand-Outs

March 16th, 2012 by Meegan Reid

Nice job on the pet photos! Hmm would have thought there would have been more entries, since I see how many photos of pets are uploaded to our photo sharing site every day…but I digress onward we go!

Here are my favorite shots and a ramble about why I picked them. They will be published in an upcoming edition of the Kitsap Sun, most likely Monday, March 19th. but that could change, I’ll try to keep you posted

I also promise you all that I am not anti-cat…the dog photos just stood-out a little more to me. I hug cats just as much as I hug dogs I swear! ;)

A new challenge will be posted next week!

“Untitled” by Kari Rolnick

I love the vibrant color in the background and how it brings out the color of the pooch’s eyes ever so slightly. This shot also has a nice classic dog pose with the sweet and innocent look up and away from the camera.

“Phineas Learning About Crows” by Ed Palm

Well first, Phineas is just a plain delightful name for a little curly haired dog! This frame is well composed and not to mention pretty humorous. I am a fan of photos that make me wonder what the animal is thinking at that moment, and this shot has me pondering what does Phineas really think of crows?

“Covered” by lourceyphotos

I like the hopeful expression (hmm can a dog have a hopeful expression?) well it looks like a hopeful almost pleading expression to me asking the photographer to please let them play in the snow just a little bit longer.

“Kindred Happiness” by Faith Winters

Ah the love of a kid and her dog! I like the eye contact between the two and the body language of both subjects mirrors the other.

    I swear I’m the only one who comments on these posts! Oh well.
    I have to say that while all 4 of these are great pictures, I love the top photo by Kari Rolnick. Wonderful coloring and great emotion.
