[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pooch was keeping guard at a gold mine I visited on the Coromandel Peninsula. He followed us around alot and I guess he liked our company as much as we did his. He even went with us through the semi-dark mine shafts during our tour. A cute dog.

This looks like it could've been taken 100 years ago (digital technology aside.) A nice, simple capture with good composition.

looks almost like my dog! he seems the curious and friendly type! nice colors, the red is very eye catching, good light and an interesting frame..
regards and tfs Martyn

Cute little curious looking guy! Great job to catch him in that pose, even though he had followed you around. The red walls and doorway are perfect - I think maybe you could have even cropped out the white wall on the right without losing anything.
Great shot.

Ciao Martyn

Ah .. I love the pose and the look
recognition of the dog.

Simple, soft and tasteful.
This is a fine composition with good details,

hello martyn

great shoot, full colors, contrast and sharpnes
the dog is the final touch

Hi Martyn
Excellent expression on the dog's face - he's a bit uncertain but is going to do something very soon. Very bright and high contrast light; very good detail on the doors and door frame.
