This is a portrait of my dog ,Rosie, and as you can see she just blinked an eye at me as I took the picture. Maybe it seems so funny to me because I know my dog, I don't know. I think it's hilarious! ;)
Let me know what you think.

Hi Geert,
cute photo
Rosie is a beautiful dog
i like how you captured her blinking

Hehe very nice! My boy Max is far more timid than your Rosie. :P He's very scared of my camera. It is funny! But not only is it funny, but it's photogenic... very unlikely in photo animals, so I have to say this is a wonderful catch. Good compo with the green contrasting her lovely coat. I like it very much! :)


Hi Geert,
what a lovely portrait :o)
she's so cute :o)
our Oscar would have been pleased to meet her.
cheers from a Greek living in Belgium

Very cute picture! Great capture! TFS

Hello Geert,
A beautiful retriever portrait!
In my humble opinion best dogs there are, but of course that is personal...
Well composed presentation, maybe a tad better sharpness?

Hi Geert,

Great capture. Very good colors. This could use a bit of sharpness but overall presentation is very good. TFS

Hi Geert,
did you teach her that ;-), she sure is a flirt.
Cute capture, very well timed. Nice composition with the neutral BG and good placing of the dog.

Hi Geert,

Beautiful portrait of his dog, I like females, they are more companions, more affectionate, I adore dogs, for me they are the best friends, but it likes girls.
Beautiful load, their colors are beautiful.
Congratulations for a beautiful companion.

Hallo Geert,

Van dergelijke foto's hou ik het meest, want deze dieren laten u nooit in de steek en blijven trouw, prachtige kop en natuurlijk het oogje dicht is de top!


The wink is terrific. Good work.

how beautiful...
well taken, and is amazing how she seems to actually look at you and blink her eye...
very original

Lovely wink from the dog, she is really a flert :)
TFS, Cheers, Moody

Excellent capture. Very good moment captured.

A dog wink! What else can you ask for? It's sooo cute, Geert! Maybe she's afraid of the flash. She is so sweet to pose for you! :)

Hi, Geert!

Great capture indeed! Workshop is also very good and informative. :)


Helo Geert,
long time not see your artwork :)

I love this portrait, my question is... how u direct the "Model" to do it ? did you promise to give her a boyfriend ? hahaha

great moment and time, very well done and very lovely smart dog.


Excellent shot of this lovely dog. I love the eye :) and you've captured it at the right time. Lovely color combination!

Thank you for sharing!
