    #1: Absolutely adorable, perfect capture. :)
    #2: My least favorite, but I like the immediate focus on the feet.
    #3: Aww, great expression. Hope you payed her(?) extra for that. ;) I like the bokeh!
    #4: She looks like she's crying. :( Wonderful capture, I really love the colors.

    Love 1 and 3. #3 is probably devastating at meal time.

    I'd love to know how you were able to capture such wonderful color, especially the grass. I have three dogs and I always take photos of them in my nice green yard, but the grass never comes out looking this green and natural. Even shooting RAW I can't seem to pull out that nice lush green color. Would you please be so kind as to share some insight? Are you using a custom white balance or something?

    Well, I really don't have a secret. The key to that nice color is in the lighting! It was a very nice day today, so I brought her outside and under a tree in the shade, so I still had the bright daylight but not the harsh lighting that washes out color. I also did a slight contrast boost for some of these in PS, but not much.

    #3 wins the prize! Great expression you captured there. I like all of them, but #3 is really good. I am kind of biased though because I love boxers, always wanted one. :)

    Nice job!

    Love them all. Everytime I see a post on here regarding dogs or puppies, I always think to myself, "hope it is a boxer." Imagine my surprise when I opened the thread and I saw the fawn wrinkles on the top of her head, and thought it has to be a boxer, when the rest of the photo loaded I was so excited!

    Anyhow, in the future, wipe her eye boogies and nose snots away, my eye is drawn to them. Is she yours? She is so sweet...
    (btw, I am biased too as I have a boxer and a boxer mix;))
