Great shots!

Really like the first one, and the Scott photo is good, the dog has that "great he's got the bl**dy camera out again..." expression.

The first one is my third favorite. My first two are Scott and Sidney. Scott's picture could have used a bit more depth of field, but you have the focus at the right spot. Both dogs look like great companions, I want to scratch both of them. Do you have any idea what Sidney's heritage is?

Yes, I used to work with dogs and train for 3.5 years at a nice kennel / rescue group. Sidney was a feral dog and my boss found her at the pound 40 minutes away. Deathly afraid of humans and about 9 months old, she had fallen in love with me. I trained her since and adopted her. She is incredibly intelligent and strong willed. You cannot fix her prey drive. She is a Cattle Dog mixed with a chow.

Thanks for your comments

on a side note, these look great on my laptop at home but at work, they look washed up and a little under contrasted. Which one should I trust? Do they look washed up and needing contrast to you? If so I may need to callibrate my monitor

They look great on my Apple 24" Cinema monitor that's calibrated with a Spyder 3. I think your laptop is right, that your work computer is a little off (the monitor I use often at work is definitely off, but it's fine for what I do, which is black and white mostly).
