    Marie,

    I don't think your dog portrait will merit, not because of the lighting or lack of eye contact, but because your subject needs a proper grooming ! We have a dog very similar to this one and when ours looks like this she's off to the groomer.

    I know it's not fair, but good looking subjects tend to score better in competitions.

    Mark, there is one area on his left that is out of focus and brighter than the rest of his beard. My eye is drawn to it right away each time I look at the image. This is an already strong image but perhaps toning down the bright area near his shoulder will make it a stronger image.

    Paul, you might consider another title.... she looks neither.

    Stan, thanks for that, I was thinking it to be a bit tacky myself. What about the image itself?

    Paul, Rick is far better qualified at this.... What I noticed was the arms are pretty bright, which draws the eye away. The shadow on her nose is also an issue. I don't think this would merit.... I'd wait on Rick's critique, it will likely be more helpful.

    "Mi Petite Amour"
    I entered this image in our last state competition where it got an 80 and at Southwest it scored a 78. I'm thinking about entering it in IPC, but I am discouraged with the scores it has received. Is there anything I could do improve it for a higher score, or should I just give up on it?
