Our pets are primarily for our own company and entertainment and not necessarily for security or livestock. For this reason, most pets are considered on the basis that they have attractive appearances, intelligence, or relatable personalities.
In this contest, we’re going to let you showcase the best of your animal friend. Show us what’ve you got! Take the most beautiful picture of your pet and drop your entry to join the contest. You can also spice it up by dropping a picture of your pet with you. However, the pet’s image must be clearer and large enough. If you have more than one animal friend, you’re welcome to take a picture with all of them in it. From this contest onward, a maximum of 3 entries is allowed per person, per contest. Good luck!

A dynamite of a shot with sharpness on the eyes that pull us into your image. Nothing around the dog to take away our attention and the tight crop, amputating the ears takes us straight to the eyes....where we read an intense concentration and alertness. Great shot....thumbs up!

Barley, who is afraid of the camera.
I had gotten a new lens and I wanted to try it out when I got home with it. What better subject then her?

Barley is clearly loved with that collar adorning her portrait! I like the pose of the dog questioining your lens and camera, there is wonder there in that look. The image is well focused with good technical elements in place that of colour saturation, contrast. Can you see those two purple lines growing out of her face? If you have cloning ability I would suggest taking that out, it would be so easy to do....just enlarge the image to HUGE and use a soft brush to remove and Barley is your Uncle! Lovely shot.

Catching the adoration between a man and his pet is perfect! I am wondering if you used Gaussian blur on this photo as the back ear of the dog looks excessively smoothed and an edge is not detected. The tight crop helps to pull in the viewer and elicits the awwww effect!

I think I have fallen in love with Luigi! You did a great job with shutter speed catching movement and freezing it well. The saturation and contrast is realistic and I also find the composition nicely done. I bet you struggled with the frame in the upper part to crop out or leave in...I like it left in as it provides a solid feel to the image. Thumbs up! Isn't there a song about Luigi mi amore?!

Love the spontaneous feel to this image and how you caught the emotion at the peak with the dog's fully concentrated on the woman with the ball! The horizon line is not straight but some may say that that only leads to a feeling of excitement. The image is nice and sharp but ohhhhh that boot in the lower left! A memorable shot of a day with your pets.

Patches has posed in her regal stance for you. A nice portrait of a loved pet sitting in the sunshine. See that white frame sitting on the left side of the margin of the photo? I feel you could have cropped in a tad tighter on both sides . The movement of the eye is caught by white and a bit of a tighter crop would do this portrait image justice. With all that white on the cat it would have been so easy to blow it out but you have good saturation, focus and tonal qualities in situ. The other way with which you could take the attention off the white furniture in the background is by vignetting it somewhat or using gradient. I like this photo for it catches that independent spirit of cats, they have their own mind. ....meow.... Thumbs up.

This is Pixel doing "cat yoga" and this pose is called "Halasana or plough pose". I agree with ICANHAS and would suggest once again you consider cropping tighter. If you are going to show us the cat...show us the cat. Cropping is an artistic tool and one can change an image dramatically. This photo brought a smile out of me and for that I thank you. Technically is is nicely done with good focus on main subject and contrast is appropriate.

What a great point of view POV. Shooting up generally shows strength in the subject a nobility and you have achieved this with the shot. If you are working in Photoshop to post process images I would suggest you clone out all those tree branches in the background for it looks like he is eating them . The other way to circumvent the background is to always be aware that when you take a photo of a subject you are also taking a photo of the background and keeping that in mind you can move around and adjust the image. There is nice sharpness in the lower right aspect of the photo where the chain is...there is lack of sharpness on his eye . I like the way he is coming into the frame and I am not bothered by amputation of ear.

There is a magenta colour cast throughout. Generally a colour cast is unwanted and occurs when the white balance is inaccurate or light is contaminated with a colour that is bouncing from a predominat colour....like the magenta flowers in the background. To eliminate the magenta you can use tools in Camera Raw in PS , also some plug in software programs like Topza, Colour FX have colour cast removers. This is a nice portrait of a loved pet tho'.

Olga-Leskiw-Suzuki Explorer — Level 12 says:

Your dude is loved and looks like he rules the house. I feel a closer crop would have strengthened your image....more cat, less table . When you have a subject on the margin line of a photograph the mind and eyes tend to go there...so my eyes go to the bowl has a closer look and finishes off the roundness of it and soon leaves the photo. You want to try to do everything you can to keep the viewer's eyes on the main subject. Technically this is well done with good focus on subject matter, tonal quality is realistic. A lovely image giving us the story of a very loved pet. Thank you.
