Would you choose these pictures in a photo contest?

One of our Country's magazines is having its annual pet photo contest. I have entered before but never one. If I started entering now I could theoretically enter 53 photos of my pups (you can enter one per day to the closing date which is the end of March). I don't think I will get that many, but I would like to win. What do you think of these ones? Be honest!

I love how Violet's face looks so big and her feet so tiny in the first one! The inquisitive look on Joie's face is good too. If I were only going to choose three of these, I would leave the one of both of them in the dog bed out, but I still love it. Since you can enter that many times, start with your favorite, but enter them all. Then keep your camera handy for any good shots. (I hope I got their names and who is who right! I'm having to work on memory, with a cold!).

So enter as many pictures as you can, and good luck!

Barbara

Ah Laurie, you have such cute pups! I especially like the first one, but all are good. They might be more effective for a contest if you can crop them down a bit, eliminating the background stuff. Just a thought.

You got them exactly right! And thanks for the good luck. The first prize is a Dyson pet vacuum worth $700.00! The other prizes are good too, but with our new carpets that is the one I would like.

Thanks Stacy. I love all animals, but I have to admit dogs are my favourite!

Thanks Karen. Yes, I intend to crop and enhance (I got 92 percent in my Photoshop class!) but I just wanted to see if anyone thought I had a chance before putting a lot of effort into this.

Number 3 is my favorite, but you need to get rid of the red eye.
Your dogs are so adorable!

awwwww - I love the second one. Our dog won't even allow the cat to walk into the living room if we are all in there. She jumps down and "barks it out". Sharing a bed would NOT be an option, that's for sure!

They are all precious, and with your photoshop abilities, you'll be able to "improve" them all.

I'd go for one a day, or as close to that as you can. You'll improve your chances of winning that vacuum the more pix you enter.
