Hey guys - steady on, I'm only an average photographer really - just got lucky here. If I had a commission to photograph a dog I would probably mess up.
In fact perhaps the highest praise I ever had for a picture was another monochrome image I entered for a local competition. The judge was Tony Clarke FRPS who is a Londoner and well known for his slightly colourful language. He described my picture as "....the dogs bollocks". In fact it was two distant trees on an otherwise bare, snow-covered mountainside, with not a dog in sight. I had called it 'Two Trees' but since that day it has always been known by it's new title - 'The Dogs Bollocks'.
