Gosh Karen, that plug in is great, wonderful effects. Such a sad capture, the little guy is pining, what he did to deserve to be put in a shelter. Did he find a home?

This shot really makes a point, and beautifully so. Your heart can't help but go out to the pup--and wish you could take him out and scratch his ears.

What a sad, sad face! I love the way you've framed it so narrowly--it adds to the message of confinement and *longing* to get out! A beautiful, heart-wrenching portrait and a well-deserved winner. Congratulations!
