[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this pic in October, the guys were very good models the photographer could have done better! :-P There was a good light that day and I regret not having at the time other lenses available. What I like in this photo other than the puppies themselves is that they seem to hold each other by the hands, ehm I mean, paws. They seem cute to me so here you go, hope you enjoy.

PP: cropped, increased sharpness and contrast, very slightly decreased brightness.

Any comments/critiques as always appreciated.
Thank you.

Great shot with a great expression captured on the second to last dog. The composition is nice and their is good detail. A different POV that is more straight on may have added to the photo but I'm unsure. TFS

We'll, you sure have my points (and my wife's). They are cute! In Dutch peopple say: "...om te stelen!" (trd. You could take them away )

Oh, look at all those paws on top of each other. And three of them looking intently at something with such similar expressions, but there has to be one different! She (is it a she?) has to look at you, and even her facial colours are different too. It is a wonderful shot, thanks for sharing.

Cute puppies.
Nice colours and contrast.

Lovely picture, Martina, very natural colors. I especially like the little guy (or gal) looking towards you. This could be a calendar picture.

What a wonderful touching photo! It's a shame we can only give 2 greenies! Great colors and composition, the title is on the spot and very sharp images! Well done, can you tell I've gone to the dogs...lol!

Just too cute! They are all holding hands!
I like the texture of the wall.


Hi Martina, what a great shot, I am a dog lover 100% !!!love the way they all seem to be holding "paws"lol
great job.

Awwwwww, how adorable!

Hi Martina, Very good capture! Indeed they were very good model but you had to do the shot just on time because I am sure they did not stay like that all afternoon :-)

Thanks so much for making me part of your favorite. I really appreciate. I will try to improve...and keep your interest. FYI, I don't post everyday...

See you on TL, Marie-Josť

what a wonderful family !
ciao ciro

Ciao Martina! Very, very lovable puppies and your observation about them holding each other by the paws is very unusual. Good moment caught! The expression of the second puppy from the left shows emotions! What a pity all of these dogs are sad... Do they know they are on sale?..

They're absolutely cute! I think the composition is good. They're forming a diagonal. The one puppy looking at you makes the whole difference. Regards, Yvonne

amazing shot :o)
they are so so cute ... especially the one looking at you Martina ;o)
many TFS it with us :o)
ili :o)

What adorable puppies! They really do look like they are holding hands, er... paws. I think what keeps this from being perfect would be the puppy on the right who got chopped. In or out. That is what I have to tell my dog all the time. He can't make up his mind. :)
Keep shooting,

Hi Martina
Nice capture of your models. The picture is sharp & rich in colors. Like the saof texture of their skins agian the rough texture of the wall. Good POV

Great diagonal composition, very sharp, and super cute subjects. Well done!
